4 Exercise Psychology Tip #10: Excellent Article On Mental Toughness from The Runner's Gazette
I found this excellent article on how runners can build mental toughness, written by Jack Heath of the Runner's Gazette. I found it to be a worthwhile read & hopefully you will too!
My pal Cymrusteve will probably delight in seeing yet another mention of Gerry Lindgren in this article, of whom he just wrote about in a recent blog post.
In fact, Cymrusteve had recently written to me on this very topic (i.e., about Gerry Lindgren & mental toughness), so it's a timely mention indeed. ;-)
And on a related note, I just dug up this amazing quote from Steve Prefontaine:
"Most people run a race to see who is fastest. I run a race to see who has the most guts."
