Training Topics

Staying Motivated: Personal motivation is key to maintaining what we signed ourselves up for. If we're not motivated, we're more likely to squander our time and neglect our race day goals. Even the best athletes can lose steam sometimes. Here are some sure-fire tips to keep yourself motivated.

Self Talk: Self-talk is the talking you do in your own head about yourself and the things that happen, your own "running commentary" on your life. What you say to yourself can have a big effect on the way that you feel, and on what you can achieve. Positive self-talk is one tool that can be used to achieve your full potential.

Managing Stress: You may feel there’s nothing you can do about stress, but you have more control over it than you might think. We may not be able to control stress, but we can manage it - it's all about taking charge. Here are some stress-management tips that may help you feel better every day.
