In this episode, we take a step back to look at the bigger picture of running. In general, running tend to be a very numbers-oriented sport. If you gather a group of runners together, it won’t take long before people start comparing PR’s. Check out a runner’s social media feed and you will find lots of mileage, times, and paces. While there is nothing exactly wrong with this it can lead to some negative thinking and undue stress.
Today we discuss how treating running as a lifelong journey leads to constant lasting victories rather than the fleeting highs and regular lows a runner can experience when the only goal is to hit one personal best after another. Running, and life itself, should be fun. Step back from the details and enjoy the big picture.
