Tips for this week

With our 10k run happening next weekend it's time to think about everything that you have learnt over the last 8 weeks. While you have conditioned your body to run the distance you have also learnt a lot about how to be successful in the mind game when running.

In this week's education section we ask you five questions that will help put your mind in the right place for next weekend's run.  

  1. If you were to have had a great run where you achieved what you wanted to achieve, what would you be telling yourself that you had done well during the run?

  2. What are the areas that the coaches have told you to focus on when you are running and how can you remind yourself of these during the 10k run, especially when things are getting hard?

  3. Look back over the last 8 weeks, what did you do well when you had a great session and how can you bring that into the 10k run?

  4. To be successful on Saturday morning you need make sure you have perfect preparation. What are the things you need to plan to be totally prepared for both the physically and mental side of the run?

  5. Ask yourself: Why and I'm doing this and why do I enjoy it?

By spending some time thinking about these questions you will be preparing your mind to make good decisions before and during your run next weekend. Now all you need to remember is to smile when you cross the line ;-)

This week's quick tip: 

'When the runs got longer I would give myself time markers to tell myself I was doing well. For example during the 15min sets I would tell myself I was doing well every 5mins.' - Mary
