RE­PEAT A MANTRA

Runner's World (UK) - - Body+Mind -

Hav­ing a go-to phrase that you can re­peat can help you push through tough parts of work­outs and races. Just choose it care­fully, says Kim­ball. ‘A lot of run­ners fall into the trap of hav­ing a neg­a­tive mantra that they think is pos­i­tive, such as “Don’t crash’ or “Don’t stop”,’ he says. ‘That run­ner is cre­at­ing a mind­set to avoid fail­ure ver­sus a run­ner who will say some­thing pos­i­tive, like “Power up” or “Move those legs”.’
