It's time for episode 21 of our series on marathon running! This week Coaches Joe and Dean sit down for another chat at the Arizona canal in Chandler -- and where are the runners anyway?
This is the third week that we're talking about the mental aspects of running and now we attack pre-race anxiety, nerves and mental preparation.
In this week's episode:
-- Dealing with the pre-race jitters
-- What does it mean to be "nervous" before a big race?
-- Getting psyched or pumped rahter than anxious
-- Focusing on positives
-- The importance (or unimportance) of sleep before a big race
This is week 21 of our series and there's more to come. The entire series is available at vimeo.com and running-advice.com.
