From the "Little Black Book: redux, by Coach Brad Hudson" (running book)

here's a really cool quote from the 5k section:

Quote
One thing about racing is that it hurts. You better accept that from the beginning or you're not going anywhere

-- Bob Kennedy



Quote
To me, the 5,000m is the most exciting event in track and field. To be a great 5,000m runner, you not only have to possess tremendous speed and endurance, but you also must have an outstanding psychological capacity to tolerate and embrace pain.

My Oregon coaches used to talk about callusing. When I think about the 5,000m that is what I think about. In order to be successful at the 5,000m, you have to be able to run race pace, workout after workout. Doing so not only ingrains the pace into your head and neuromuscular system, but it also helps to develop a callus to the effort and discomfort that it takes to do so.

-- Brad Hudson

sick  :wowthatwasnutswtf: :headbang: :ibrunning:

the callus analogy is perfect.

“You realize why people in the western world have so much difficulty competing with these guys. These guys don’t have any Facebook or Twitter. They run in the morning, eat, sleep, run more. There are dirt roads. There was an old red dirt track, which was uneven and had plants growing out of it. Here you have the fastest (distance runner) alive, and he’s using a plastic bottle to indicate where to start (a run). It had a very ‘Rocky’ vibe.”

– Dr. Philip Skiba talking to the Chicago Tribune after visiting Eliud Kipchoge‘s training camp in Kenya. For the record, Kipchoge has both a Facebook and Twitter account.

someone posted these on IG:

@jordanhasay - "don't be the runner who wants the race to end."

@blue_benadum - "pain is going to happen so you either become it, run at it and through it or become a coward to it. Your choice".

kenya_experience_itenRacing hurts
🇰🇪
Sorry, but that's just how it is. If you think he pacing right then the pain will build gradually throughout the race and be more tolerable until you can unleash your kick to finish.
🇰🇪
But ultimately there is little way to get around it.
It's a tough sport and no matter how fit you are you are going to have to suffer for it and earn it if you want to get the most out of yourself on race day

Trust yourself and even when you're down, and even when you're down, keep on trying. If your mind says you can do it, you can do it!

kenya_experience_iten Wilson Kipsang talking about the power of positive thinking. 🇰🇪
There has been a lot of talk in this area recently and I don't think it should be brushed off as unimportant. Runners of all levels can work on this and make a conscious decision to think positive thoughts when it starts to get tough.





just more mental game quotes. simple one.. but Kipsang/Kipchoge talk alot about the mental game.. take note! :D

The training haiku by Michael Joyner (scientist who published the paper in 1991 claiming a sub 1:58 marathon was possible):

Run a lot of miles
Some faster than your race pace
Rest once in a while
