When you drive past a runner on the road or pass someone moving at a good pace on a trail, you are most likely observing their form, physical endurance, speed, attire, and any number of physical characteristic… The act of running, however, is as much a mental workout as it is a physical workout. Skilled runners know how to block out what they need to stay focused. A tired mind can make for a tired body; therefore, it is important for a runner to stay positive and disciplined. This is why many advanced runners recommend that athletes consider doing yoga to keep their internal state-of-being in check and to better understand their physical capabilities.
Our NH State Park Bloggers shared some of the thoughts that go their minds while running… (and some of the bloggers probably should consider taking up yoga). Enjoy this short video!
