We often hear the phrase, “it’s all in the mind”, but what does it all mean?
A colleague of mine told me at the weekend he went out for a 10k run and completed it in around 56 minutes, which may not sound amazing to regular runners, but to a non-runner, which he is, this is an amazing time.
I asked him because he hadn’t been running in a long time and also, in his own words he used to be a little fatty, he believes anyone with any reasonable level of fitness can run a 10k in under an hour.
I asked him, how can that be? As many regular runners i know aspire to run a 10k in under an hour.
He told me, “it’s all in the mind. If you believe you can, you can”. He’s not paid as a motivational speaker, he just goes out and does it.
My first 10k which i ran back in July 2015, i completed in 55 minutes. My last 10k i ran in December 2015 i completed in 44 minutes.
In the words of a famous sports brand. Just do it!
