Runner's World (UK) - - In This Issue -

A FEW SEN­TENCES about your best work­out. Fif­teen min­utes jot­ting down your goals and con­cerns re­gard­ing the next day’s run. A chron­i­cle of good days and bad, dis­ap­point­ments and suc­cesses. Could th­ese sim­ple acts of writ­ing mean the dif­fer­ence be­tween a PB and a sub-par per­for­mance? Run­ner Megan Vac­caro finds that get­ting her thoughts down on pa­per helps her stick to her race plan. Ernesto Ramirez, a 1:13 half marathoner, says that his prerace writ­ing helps him strate­gise in more depth. Lau­ren Flesh­man, a two-time US cham­pion at 5000m, knows that when she puts things down in a jour­nal she sleeps a lot bet­ter the night be­fore her race. Th­ese three ath­letes have added an ef­fec­tive strat­egy to their reper­toire – writ­ing in a jour­nal.
