Mental Training for Runners: How to Stay Motivatedby Jeff Galloway
Synopses & Reviews
Generations of exercisers and athletes have struggled with the motivation to get out the door, to continue on tough days, or to push through the final barrier of discomfort to the long awaited goal. This book describes the source of problems, how to diffuse them, with methods that can keep one motivated. The unconscious process of stress build-up often sends body and mind on separate missions. Galloway provides a series of mental training methods which can bring body, mind, and spirit into a powerful team. Each major area of low motivation is noted with proven ways of overcoming the problems. Many runners have applied these methods to work through other low motivation challenges at work, in the family and in other areas of life.
In a unique guide for runners, the author looks at ways to train the mind to break free of life's stresses and stay focused in one's training regimen. Original.
