Cross Country Running-six Mental Tips

Long distance running can often be grueling and severely uncomfortable. How is it that some people love it while others despise the very thought of it? Experienced long-distance runners use the following mental tips and practices to make running fun.

First, you need to let your imagination wonder. I know, running requires concentration, but it can be eased through the right thought process. Never think about what your body is doing, or the fact that your head keeps bobbing up and down. Focusing on your aches and pains only makes them worse. Do you remember those days in school when class seem to drag on for an eternity? The reason it took so long was probably because you were watching the clock. If you can could have got your mind off of how much you were dying to get out of there, time would have passed more quickly. Time flies when you are distracted.

Second, concentrate on overcoming one runner at a time. In a sense, this statement contradicts my first. While it is good to keep your mind distracted, you need to keep a small, narrow section of your brain focused on the race. This is why mental work for long-distance running is so hard, you need to be distracted and concentrated simultaneously. Look to the runner ahead of you, and start lengthening your strides to the point that you are gradually shortening the distance between the two of you. Pass him, and look to the next runner.

Trail Shoes Have Been One Of The Hottest Categories In Running

Ever since the introduction of the Adidas Response Trail 15 years ago, trail shoes have been one of the hottest categories in running. The success of the Response Trail spawned numerous trail shoes from every running shoe manufacturer. Although some of the trail shoes have been terrific, others have been thinly disguised road shoes with a trail look.

But what should you look for in a trail shoe? It depends on two primary factors: which type of runner are you (i.e., do you overpronate?) and which type of trails do you run on? If you overpronate, you will need added medial support just like on your road shoes to reduce overpronation.

The type of trails you run on is a trickier question. If you run on hard-packed dirt trails that are little more than dusty roads, a road shoe is just fine. A trail shoe won’t do much for you anyway. But if you run on soft, muddy and hilly trails, a trail shoe will make your runs more enjoyable if for no other reason that a good trail shoe should offer much better traction than a road shoe.
