MIND OVER MATTER- do it in practice, rely on it in races!!! ☺️🙌🏽
OH BOY! We lived! Hahaha. Of all my workouts, the long run is actually my only day of running that I’m not overly pumped about- even though it’s just run at an aerobic effort because I’m already dead tired by that point since I do it the day after my hard workout and am doing the longest run of my week. It’s so mind over matter because I’m fatigued and my legs are heavy and you just have to go out there and make it happen.💪🏽 We decided to run the coast this morning - 8 miles out & 8 miles back! I love me some out & backs- I feel like mentally it's just a lot easier on me. The sun came out about 5 miles in making it a little warm- and then my legs started getting super heavy in the last half. I focused on high cadence for the whole run and keeping my steps small and not a lot of arm pumping -->basically trying to do as little movement as possible and stay efficient and quick. I think the whole long run (done after a hard workout) is similar to the last couple miles of a race- where you're already fatiguing and you basically have to still keep your form together, cadence high, and mind still in it. These long runs to me are such a good mental challenge & I trust they will pay off in big ways!
I haven’t decided if runner’s high is because there are legit endorphins that are released or if I’m just in a particularly good mood after hard workouts because in my own way I’ve cheated death that day. Haha. 😂
