Positive Thinking Change Your Mindset and Run Like The Wind

Our Spa Manager Heidi Grimwood is training for the Clonakilty Waterfront Marathon 


Training for a marathon no matter how small even the 10km is no easy task. Like most of us we need to juggle family life, work life and try to squeeze in runs when we can. The colder mornings are not encouraging when you’d rather be relaxing with a hot cuppa rather than running outside. However there is nothing more satisfying than completing a run and the adrenaline that comes after.

Top mistakes I have made over the past couple of weeks include not eating breakfast before my run and wondering why my body doesn’t want to move! Not stretching after the run which is essential and  as a result getting sore knees and back. Finally poor mental attitude – running with a mind set of I DON’T WANT TO DO THIS – does not help you finish your training for the day!!

So, yesterday I woke up with a positive frame of mind even though it is pouring with rain and blowing a gale, ate my 2 slices of gluten free toast with a slice of ham on them and a small bowl of water melon, strutted to the starting line with Mark Hilliard of Finish Line Fitness and set off on my 10km training.  I felt amazing, full of energy and positive. Apparently drivers passing claim to have seen me with a big smile on my face too!! I finished my time 3 minutes faster than the previous week and although a little stiff in the afternoon I felt positive that my training was back on track. I am taking my usual break for the weekend and will resume with a 5km run Monday morning after the school run.

I am enjoying seeing the improvements that I am making in my running but know without the mind and body coaching from Mark Hillard I wouldn’t have got this far so thank you!
