Thinking Too Much: Are You an Instinctual or Analytical Runner?

Thinking Too Much: Are You an Instinctual or Analytical Runner?

When talking with one of my collegiate athletes, he was discussing the process of thinking during a recent 5k race. He summed it up his thought process as follows: focus on getting in a good spot, “ride the train” for most of it, then reengage. To be slightly more descriptive, his point was that in a 5k, there were key points in this type of race that he needed to be engaged and times when he could just let his instincts take over to stay on the pack. He knew that nothing major would occur in the first portion of the race. Within the first lap, he would know whether it was going to be a sit and kick or a go from the gun type adventure. As soon as he was aware that it was going to be fast, it was time to ride the train, zone out a bit, and then with 5 or so laps left re-engage and start focusing.
