I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: A positive attitude goes a long way. When I realized I was injured a few days ago I immediately turned into Negative Nancy. I was dwelling on the fact that I might not be able to run the Malibu Marathon and I couldn’t stop thinking about the progress I had made that would be lost. I had been feeling fantastic. My long run pace was great, I was loving the long runs and I felt strong. Now what? I might as well say “bye-bye” to all my fitness gains as I sit on my butt “resting” this stupid injury. Boo-hoo, poor me.
With this new outlook I have been healing.
Trust me folks, there is power in positive thinking.
