The Run Smarter Series

The Psychology of distance running

The Run Smarter Podcast

Brodie starts part 1 of 3 reviewing a new book titled: The science & practice of middle and long distance running. We break down chapter 5 titled the psychology of distance running before interviewing the editor next month.

This episode covers the evidence surrounding the use of psychological strategies to help running performance. The psychological effects on performance can be explained by how we think, how we feel and subsequently, how we behave. 

This content divides into two areas, Psychological factors and psychological strategies.

With factors, Brodie discusses self-belief, motivation & emotional state along with examples and sub-categories. With psychological strategies, we include self-talk, imagery, goal setting and attention to focus.
