    Miles of Motivation: Dealing With Negative Voices

    Miles of Motivation: Dealing With Negative Voices

    What is mental performance? As runners we tend to focus on the physical, but often it's your mental strength that can make the difference. Helping us wrap our heads around that extra 1% is Andy Cohen Wray, founder of Athlete in Mind - the mental performance programs directed toward the everyday athlete and olympian alike. Andy, who’s journey began after a series of mental health and consequential health issues following PTSD from his time in the force and the death of his brother, explains some simple and effective tools to combat the running reaper and race day negativities to help find that crucial extra 1%. Rounding off season two with the perfect running cool-down is Yasmin Fattori from Yoga Yasmin, but more importantly - Amy’s mum!
