In preparation for our Savannah retreat and the Philadelphia Marathon coming up in a few weeks, I just completed my longest training run yet and I am so pleased with myself. Long-distance runs can feel like such a struggle and often require lots of thought work to push through the physical pain that comes along with it.
Today, I’m sharing how I got through my run without suffering or letting my inner mean girl loose, and I’m giving you some powerful questions to ask yourself when you’re struggling to tap into the feelings of excitement and determination to keep going. This new thought that I used is definitely my new mantra, and I know you’ll find it powerful too.
Join me this week to discover how you can crush long runs without the suffering. The mental work is so crucial and isn’t always fun to do, but pushing through the tough miles is what will help you up-level your endurance and mental strength like nothing else.
The women in Run Your Best Life are crushing their half marathon training at the moment and we’re seeing such amazing results. If you want to join in on the fun, you’re going to have to join soon because the group is growing fast and we’re closing Run Your Best Life in the next month to ensure everyone already in there is getting all the support they need!
