Hi Everyone --
I am generally pleased with how my running/training is going, but I would like to be more focused on the act of running itself - to help cut the internal chatter and distractions and be able to concentrate, or just experience, the essential elements of the run: the rhythm of breathing, striding, keeping form, keeping tempo.
I think a pre-run routine or ritual may be of help to "center down" and "focus in." I was wondering what the rest of you do. Thanks in advance!
