I’ve got a marathon (my first) coming up in a couple of weeks, and was wondering if anyone had any good suggestions to occupy the mind. Some of the best runners I know have an ability to zone out’ when running – I’d love to be able to do this, but never quite manage!
Chatting to my running partner and listening to music help to some extent, but does anyone have any good ideas to help take the mind off the task in hand and therefore make the marathon a bit easier? Is this important?
Not sure if this is good or bad, but I find myself doing mental arithmetic the whole way round….calculating pace (despite having my Garmin watch!), percentage or proportion of the run remaining, projection to different length runs, etc etc. Just call me Rain Man…
