Compliment yourself, since we last caught up and my finish line video!

Compliment yourself, since we last caught up and my finish line video!

I use mantras during a hard workout or race. I actually have a blog post scheduled on Friday with my favorite mantras! My current favorites are “I am fast. I am strong. I am a marathoner” and “Think Strong, be strong, finish strong”. I like to get a Momentum Jewelry Wrap for each big race with whatever I want to remind myself of during the race! Last year it said “Think strong, have fun”. I wear it on the same wrist as my watch, so everytime I glance down I see it! I just repeat mantras over and over to pull myself out of a dark mile. If that doesn’t work I start counting down from 100 to distract myself. I tried a beet smoothie the other day and really didn’t like it. I’ve heard there are many benefits of beets for runners, so I’m interested to keep trying it! Soreness–after a marathon, my quads kill me. I usually have to go down stairs backwards.
