After my last race of the year in 2019, I decided to take the month of December off from running, restarting in January to begin training for my next race. I’m not going to lie, running has felt like a real struggle since I started up again, and the mental drama has been vicious.
I know that many of you also have drama that comes up whenever running feels hard or you have negative thoughts about it, or you just want to sit on the couch and believe the excuses your brain tells you to not get out there, and I feel you. This has been me for the last couple of months, but I’ve come up with a three-step tool to help me work through it, and I’m showing you how you can start implementing this strategy, too.
Listen in this week to learn the process I’ve developed that you can use in your running or anywhere else in your life. As I work to grow my business this year, I’ve used this same tool here, and it’s already brought me so much transformation, so I know you’ll have some a-ha moments when you apply it to your life!
The Rebel Runner Roadmap is a 30-day online class where I teach you the fundamentals of running. This is a class where you’ll learn how to start running the right way, or how to up-level your running. From running form, strength training, stretching, to all the brain work, it’s all in there. Check it out here and get on the waiting list for the next round of enrollment …I can’t wait to see you there!
