THE PSYCHOLOGICAL FREEDOM TO PERFORM YOUR BEST
The psychological freedom to perform at a higher level rests within all of us
, but as human beings we habitually place limits on that freedom.
Given the reality of life, your psychological freedom is your ability to minimize the effect of the natural limitations and rise to your highest level. To do so, you must consciously work on developing your mind-set and psyche for running.
But most importantly, you must work on your running technique.
Belief in your technique gives you the confidence to move past your limitations and explore your true potential.
As you move forward with your development of strength, speed, flexibility, coordination, and endurance, your mind-set will become much stronger. With a strong mind, you will no longer fear running too much mileage, running too hard during workouts or doing the training exercises that will give your body the ability to perform at a higher level.
How are you going to overcome a lifetime of limitations to suddenly become a wiser, stronger, more confident and ultimately faster runner? Well, itís not going to be sudden. Itís going to be an evolutionary process that involves patience, learning, focus and determination.
At first you may feel like youíre backing up as you go from a regimen of 30 or 40 miles a week to one that is short on distance and long on drills. But as you work through the steps involved in learning the Pose Method of Running you will find a total package coming together for you.
Nagging injuries will fade away and be forgotten. What were once maximum speeds will soon become sustainable paces. Your fear of running intervals will be replaced by an excited anticipation as your next interval workout approaches. Impending races will no longer be a source of dread, but opportunities to rewrite your personal record book.
You will have the freedom to succeed.
