It's episode 19 in our weekly video series and this week we take on a topic near and dear to Coach Dean's heart. As a Certified Mental Games Coach, Dean knows a thing or two about preparing athletes mentally to race.
This week we look at issues have to do with the mental aspects of running:
-- How much of running is mental?
-- What is mental toughness?
-- How do first time marathoners differ from everyone else?
-- Strategies for focusing in the last miles of a long run or race
-- Dealing with mental barriers
-- Pre-race anxiety
This is the next installment of our weekly video series, which comes out Thursdays on Running-Advice.com. Join us each week for more!
