Marathon Training pt.3

LAST LONG RUN before the Chicago marathon. Running can be more mental than physical. At times during this run I would start to question myself. The lady that just passed on her bike said nice job. Another woman running just cruised past me at a much faster pace. Immediately my thoughts were negative. Why did she say nice job? Do I look like I’m struggling? Damn that woman’s running so much faster than me, I feel like I’m slow as s**t. I quickly switched my train of thought. She could have in fact just been saying nice job and maybe that other runner was only doing a short run compared to my longer run. Don’t let negative thoughts get in your way. My newest mantra that gets me through these long one is “never ring the bell”
