New York Marathon Training – Week 6

Finally, I am feeling a bit more like myself, and even though I didn’t manage too many hard sessions this week, I did manage to bank the miles and complete 4 sessions.

My long run this week was quite strange. I almost feel like I have lost a bit of my mental toughness. I spent the first three miles telling myself that I wouldn’t be able to complete the run and that I was too weak. As I tried to block the negativity, I realised that it was all in my head, as my legs actually felt fine and I wasn’t even really out of breath! Ridiculous how your mind can make or break your runs. I really need to find some mental strategies/toughness for the next 10 weeks!

If anyone has any tips for mental toughness, please post below and let me know.
