When it comes to running, mental willpower goes a very long way. If you think positive thoughts, you’ll notice your runs become less taxing physically and mentally. Conversely, if you loathe running and continue that same mantra before, during and after your workout, chances are you’ll find yourself zapped of motivation to continue lacing up and training.
Easing your thoughts towards running and improving performance can begin today. Here’s a preview of 5 simple tips to get your thoughts and your performance on to a path of success.
Tip #1: Stand tall and roll your shoulders back.
It’s natural to slump over when you feel tired, but when it happens during a run, concentrate on rolling your shoulders back, expanding your rib cage and standing tall.
Tip #3: Smile and stop clenching your fists.
Many runners display their tension on their face and in their body. Release that tension and relax your face by forcing yourself to smile.
If you clench your hands, open them. Imagine you’re holding a delicate butterfly in your hand, or even an egg. This helps to open up your body and transfer energy where it’s needed.
