Happy Workout Wednesday! Many of you commented on my positive attitude after my last marathon didn’t go as I had hoped. Honestly, I think refocusing on the positive aspects of all races is one of the most important keys to racing sustainably for a long period of time. If you want to just bang out one race and hang up your running shoes for the rest of your life, I guess a positive attitude after a bummer race isn’t all that necessary. But if you want to continue running and racing for several years to come (like I do!), be aware that you can quickly drag yourself down mentally, unless you learn to reframe suboptimal race situations in a positive light.
I’m going to leave you with a cliffhanger there, because that is just one of the tips that I shared over at my guest post on the ZOOMA blog earlier this week. Go check out that post for other tips on “What to Do When Your Race Doesn’t Go As Planned!” And remember … if you want to run ZOOMA Texas with me on April 12th (10K or half marathon!), use discount code TXAMB8 for 10% off!!
If you wound up here from the ZOOMA blog, then welcome! On “Workout Wednesdays,” I usually share fitness and running tips, workouts that I have created, or other workout-related items. You can check out some of my previous fitness-related posts here. While you’re visiting The Lyons’ Share, click here to download my recently-released pdf called “7 Nutrition Myths That Will Change How You Eat Every Day!” And I hope you stop by again!
Last thing … if you happen to be in Austin, join ZOOMA for a 3-mile run and a post-run yogurt snack bar on April 3rd at 6pm at HEB at Mueller!
So tell me in the comments … Have you ever had a race not go as planned? How did you recover? What’s your workout for today?
