I read a stat recently. Most runners use visualisation to get to the end of their run.
Visualising the finish line. Your friends and family there... Cheering you on.
I visualise. I visualise the big as bowl of food that I'm going to inhale at the end. And if it's a significant run, like the half marathon... The vision of a cold beer was so clear I could almost taste it.
Visualising really does work. Whether the vision is virtuous or not.
Heading out on a 10 k run with Nicky this morning. Only a cup of tea in my belly. Imagine what I'm visualising!!
