Two weeks out from my marathon. Long story short…stepped in a hole rolled my ankle. Had to take a week off. I have put in 412 miles since this summer training. Should I be freaking out?!?!?!?!?! Because I’M FREAKING OUT!!!

The best I’ve done so far is 5 miles, and I started out about a year ago just like you! I remember being so excited that I “ran” my first 5k. Wheezed and whined and plodded, more like it. With the end in sight, however, I got a rush of adrenaline and sprinted. That gush of energy made me realize that my body was capable, but my mind was holding me back. I’m confident now that I can go further than 5 miles, but I haven’t pushed myself. Go slow! Yes, trust yourself. ))

there’s no magic to this, it’s just being consistent and listening to your body. Go your own pace, enjoy your surroundings and trust that practice makes perfect. I started EXACTLY like you. Persevere and push through the days that you dread running. You got this!

Seriously..what is the magic to this?

Great video! Favorited! I’m just going to run my first race soon. It’s only a 10k, but I am definitely going to use some of these tips!

Tip number 1 does I for me. In the days leading up to a race and I’m doubting myself, I say over and over ‘trust the training you have done’ until the negative thoughts go away. I can guarantee you I will be saying this at the start line of every race I do

thanks good tips : )

I always check old vids, especially this one cause people still watch it regularly. No need to be anxious. If you’ve done all the training, your body is ready. Just treat it like another training run, but really put your all into it. The rewards you’ll reap at the end will justify any and all pain. And remember, pain is temporary, success is forever. GO GET ‘EM!

Probably you don’t even check comments on this anymore. Thanks for the advice. Running my first marathon in 5 days and I feel pretty scared now. Not sure what I’m anxious about!!!

Thanks Ginger, I am running my second mary this weekend in Tokyo…..great advice! Going out slow is really important especially in big city mary’s, don’t waist energy weaving in and out of slower runners the first couple miles…you can make up for it later on as things open up!!!
