Ok, This may come as a shock but I'd like to be serious for a moment. I'm interested in hearing from other runners about the mental aspect of running. Admittedly, I find difficult to get out the door to run sometimes and my mind doesn't always help matters!
What got me thinking about this was Brendan Lunty`s guest column on Basil`s blog. Brendan mentioned how he loves to run:
- in the rain
- in the dark
- in the cold
- at the track
- in the city
There was more love going on than at a sixty`s hippy orgy!
Do not get me wrong, I do love running, just not how Brendan loves running. Am I alone?
So, my questions are these:
Do you find it easy to get out the door to do your training runs?
Do you experience mental ups and downs while you are on your training runs? During races?
Tell me the truth people! Tell me your experiences.
