Get Your (Mental) Game On!

Getting in shape physically for an event or activity is only a part of the training process.  Getting your mind in sync with your body plays a huge role in performance.  Whether you are a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, strengthening your mental muscle is a must.

Here are a few tips to get your head in the game.

Create a Mantra
Repeating a short phrase during an activity can help you dig deep and fight through the pain.   “Stay Strong” is a favorite of mine.  Find something that motivates you and use it.

Trust in the Training
You trained.  You followed a plan faithfully.  Well, even if you only followed 80% of the plan you are in good shape!  Trust that the training provided you with what you need.  Have faith.

The Yes Factor
Yes, you can.  Repeat.  Often.

Now go run!
