Think of it, if you run a good time or not the only person who really cares is yourself. This may sound a bit harsh but running is to be enjoyed, its not a life or death situation. Sometime we put too much pressure on ourselves and take out the fun of running or competing.
Remove that pressure from yourself and take away the pressure you exert on yourself to perform.
‘No one really cares about how fast your run or not’
You will be amazed how downplaying this external pressure and focus on enjoying running as fast as you can you, will make is so much easier to accomplish your running goals.
So next time you run a race or time-trial, take the pressure off yourself by telling yourself
‘no-one really cares what time I run’
