Burnout March 17, 2009

Did you know burnout is a real psychological issue? We are starting to feel that towards running….major  BURNOUT. And the race is still weeks away. Any advice out there?

    My mantra when I’m training is “just keep moving” – could be on a long run when I’m running out of steam or not feeling motivated to run after work. My mantra kicks in and reminds me what I’m working toward – the unreal feeling of finishing another race and being able to look back at how hard I worked to get to the finish line. Just Keep Moving!

    Thanks for your feedback! It’s true….when you think about that feeling when you corss the finish line, and everyone cheering….there’s nothing like that. I guess we should pretend that at the end of our runs there will be a finish line…
