Practical lessons and tips to help you develop the mental side of your running
How to Conquer Pre-Race Anxiety - Part 1
In the last episode, (#19) I unpacked 20 different ways to create feelings of anxiety before a race.
Over these next 3 episodes, I'll be sharing practical strategies to help you deal with each of the 20 ways, so you can reduce or destroy your pre-race anxiety altogether.

How I do pre-race anxiety
It's a strange title for an episode - but in this episode I teach you all of the ways I do, or have done pre-race anxiety in the past so that you can identify how you may also do the same.
If we can understand and build the self-awareness that pre - race anxiety is something that we 'do', as opposed to something that happens to us, then we can build strategies for how to overcome it.
I hope that by me baring my soul on this episode, I can help you to understand and address any pre-race anxiety that you may have (or do!).
