I need to practice this. Thank you. I am ALWAYS putting myself down before I even begin. I love this advise.

Like the article. I don't let my mine take over any more. If you listen to it you will never do it. It's like your mind say stay in bed and you listen. We have to push harder.

For my last marathon, I used "Just keep swimming, swimming...." over and over, from Dory in Finding Nemo. It worked.

I'm a firm believer in positive self talk -- I'm always doing it and getting in longer workouts, accomplishing more at work, and just getting lots done

My motivation is not only for myself, but for my family as well. Especially my parents! They both have cancer and have TERRIBLE diets. I want them to see what I'm doing and my results. Hopefully they will jump on with me!
The new products I found are helping too!

I find the repetition of swimming very zen... I am up to 75 minutes non stop and use a mantra and find it relaxing and enjoy the endorphins too.

Loved this article. I try to use positive self-talk in most areas of my life. Thanks for the suggestion of visualization. My daughter is an athlete and I do this with her before her competitions. I never thought of using for myself.

I can definitely agree with positive self-talk. When I am running and I feel exhausted, if I let the fatigue make me stop, then I feel weak but when I start pep-talking myself into finishing my run, then I always find it to finish!

I always say I can stop after I adjust to my longer stride after the crest of the next hill, knowing fully well that I will have recovered from the hill by then and I won't feel like stopping!

I recently found out that when I get tired during a workout, I just keep telling myself, it's just a feeling, I have to push myself instead of needing that easy break... that which I can push through until its over. If I always gave in, I sure wouldnt be making progress.

Loved this artical! My mantra is usually a song. Right now I'm singing "With a smile & a song, life is just like a bright sunny day, your cares fade away......"
It helps when I'm not remembering who & what I am!

Yogi Berra reportedly said "Baseball is 90% mental and the other half is physical." You can apply that to any exercise, not just baseball.

I think my mantra will be Fit & Fierce! Great article. Thanks.
