One step at a time..
So I will begin by telling you that one of my biggest running inspirations is the legendary Jack Daniels. His book Daniels' Running Formula is a must have in any runner's library, and one that I use practically every day. I saw a great interview with him (you should watch it here) on mental fatigue. He describes how important it is to focus on what you are doing that moment. Instead of thinking you have to run a whole 5k, just think 1 mile at a time, or 400 meters at a time, or even better yet 1 step at a time. Tomorrow I am going to run Freihofer's Run for Women (an event that I ran last year and really enjoyed), but I am not going to run a 5k, instead I am going to run one step at a time! So lace up your shoes and go out for a run, but just do it step by step.
