My running this summer can best be described as a mental game....my mind playing games with itself....convincing myself that I can continue on and that no I do not need to walk those hills...playing games to convince myself to go one more mile. I think the hardest part of coming back to running has been the mental tenacity...regaining that drive. I am making that decision though that I will not fail at this...I will reach my goal I set to break 1:50 for a half marathon. I know it is going to take much more work than I have been putting in lately...but now is the time for my body to follow!
How do you keep yourself convinced to push when you mind is trying to tell you to stop?
