Our brain is the boss. It orders the body what to do and what not to do. If we can find a way to coax the brain out of cowering in the face of stress, our bodies will follow.
Being tired, stressed out, and faced with numerous other daily tasks that keep us from getting our workout in will not go away….but willpower can overcome physical obstacles.
When you willfully subject yourself to stress, such as training, taking care of your family, and working every day, you become better able to cope with all the stressors in your life. Training increases your self-belief and your confidence in what you can do.
The unquestioning devotion that runners display seems to be the key to living the double life as a runner and a mere mortal. Put yourself in a positive state of mind and allow for extraordinary feats of strength.
