This week’s topic is something every single runner has experienced. Whether you’re brand new or a seasoned pro, race day anxiety tends to come up for all of us as we inching closer to a race.
We devote lots of time and energy questioning our ability in the days, weeks, or even months leading up, which never plays out in our favor. So today, I’m shining a light on how this emotion produces results we don’t want, and I’m giving you a new way to think about your training, and ultimately the race.
Join me on the podcast this week as I share some insight into the different kinds of race day anxiety that you might be experiencing. Indulging in this kind of worry and fear only leads to your training suffering, and then race day sucking, so I hope this episode helps you see an alternative path that will serve you much better.
If this episode has spoken to you and you want to run a 5K, you need to join my eight-week 5K training program that starts September 9th. We’re going to be teaching you everything from the technical side of running to the mind management that you need to stay motivated.
