#381: How to Dig Deep in a Running Race

Another Mother Runner

20-09-2019 • 1 hr 1 min

Sarah and Coach Amanda dive in to a conversation with mental skills coach Carrie Cheadle, co-author of the forthcoming book called Rebound: Train Your Mind to Bounce Back Stronger from Sports Injuries, about staying mentally strong in a race. Sarah and the coaches discuss: -replacing dread with gratitude at a starting line; -what grit is—and how to hone it; -keeping your brain where your feet are in a race; -the two levels of perceived effort—and how it’s a bit like a hall of mirrors; and -post-race blues, and how to veer away from them. In the relatively brief intro chitchat, Sarah shares a story about why she ended up walking barefoot halfway through a trail run. The mental skills advice starts rolling in at 15:10.
