Thoughts from the Road: Running in 500 Words or Less. Vol. 3

Thoughts from the road.

Matt Ready-4222

Rest day and the irony of Running…”why is it that my legs always wants to run on my prescribed rest day?”

My former run coach once said: “Your muscles know no pain, only your mind knows pain.” I’ve used these words many times to push my muscles long past their willingness to go. Mental Toughness is something I practice and preach all the time! You hear it at Leapfrog Athletics workouts all the time: “There is NOTHING you can’t do for”…30 seconds, for 1 minute, for whatever the interval is. We Prepare Ourselves both physically and mentally in every workout.

With that being said: My muscles obviously know Rest Day…because without failure, they are always feeling willing and anxious to perform.

Ironic.
