Successful Running? It's All in the Mind... (Well, mostly)

Posted by on in Kinesiology

And although it was exhausting doing battle with it for about a mile and a half, I felt better for not having given in to it. Once out of its clutches, I struggled to find the steady pace I'd maintained so well before the wind. But yet again, unlike on seemingly every run since March, I didn't criticise myself for it. I ran for as long as I could until I needed to walk for a bit. I picked a landmark and said, "If you can make it to that bin/lamp post, then you can take a short breather". And because I was seeing the break as a reward for having reached the target rather than a defeat at not being able to run further, my recovery time was shorter!Recently I have found myself under the cloud of depression again. I knew I was there - it's not my first visit - but I didn't realise the impact it was having on my running, until yesterday morning. Up until the end of March when I completed the Olympic Park Run, I was doing really well - getting faster and stronger and really loving running. I entered this year's Royal Parks Half Marathon and Great South Run confident that this year I would achieve a really good personal best having got off to such a good start. But then it started to rain. Every day for seemingly ages and my regular runs fell by the wayside.

Olympic Inspiration

Posted by on in Massage
So the curtain has closed on the London Olympics and I think it's fair to say that it exceeded everyone's expectations in terms of spectacle, organisation and Team GB's medal haul. It has captured the imagination of the British public and lifted our spirits. Now that it's over, how do you intend to keep the Olympic spirit alive?

Olympic excitement!

Posted by on in Massage
Tomorrow the Olympic Torch Relay passes through our area and I'm really excited about seeing it in Fareham! I love this part of the build-up to the Games. Yes, the Olympics will be recorded in the annals of sports history as the "London" Olympics but the Torch Relay allows the event to be a national celebration - and quite right too since our athletes are drawn from all corners.

The importance of hydration

Posted by on in Nutrition
I have two big running events in October: the Royal Parks Half Marathon and the Great South Run so I have just started to increase my training and so far it's been a tale of two halves and I believe it's all down to how much water I have (and haven't) been drinking.
