Discover how to use one of your best assets - your mind - to greatest effect in your spring marathon
If the race isn’t going to plan, don’t keep pushing yourself at a pace you can’t sustain. If an injury is shouting at you to stop or slow down, don’t be afraid to listen. I’m not saying that you should slow down or wimp out at the first opportunity, but be sensible and review the situation as it unfolds.
If something negative does happen, assess the situation and set a new goal or target. There’s little point getting a PB for the first 15 miles, then having to walk the rest. There’s a difference between mental weakness and wisdom.
It’s more brave and wise to assess the situation honestly and refocus, even if that means backing off and being fit enough to return to battle another day, rather than knackering yourself for months or years.

It probably is if you think it is.
