Outrunning Fear

Ooops, sorry if you are expecting something else. I am still fighting a demon in me.

"A lot of confidence is built by overcoming fears," - Peter Gilmore (infiniterunning. com). 
"These sessions show that you're physically capable, so mentally you become more self-assured on race day." 


THE FEAR: NOT FINISHING

New distances can intimidate runners. To move beyond the fear of the unknown, focus on volume with long runs that extend beyond race distance (except for marathoners). "Physically, it's essential," says Gilmore, "and mentally, you see that you can accomplish it."




THE WORKOUT: LONG RUNS
Complete three long runs that are one to two miles longer than your goal race distance (22 miles for the marathon). One run proves you can do it; three seals the deal. Slow the pace so you end strong—another confidence-booster, says Gilmore.
