Find Your Mental Edge During a Marathon

 

Have you wondered how some runners could just turn on that switch during a race to take it to the next level?

 

Have you struggled with finding your mental toughness during your races?

 

Do you have an upcoming marathon and want to learn about some mental running strategies?

 

Then you are in the right place with sub 3 hour marathoner Paul Devillo who shared some great actionable strategies for you to take into your next marathon!

 

Paul is a well accomplished masters marathon runner who only started running in his 40’s!

 

 

In this episode, Paul covers race preparation and tips you can implement during different stages of your race to improve your mental fortitude and hit that PR you always wanted!

Some of the questions, I asked Paul were:

 

  • How much of a marathon is mental?

 

  • What does it take mentally to run a marathon?

 

  • How do you mentally prepare for a marathon?

 

  • How do you push yourself past your limits during a marathon? (any mental secrets or tips you have for our listeners)

 

  • How has your training changed since you turned 50?

“I can’t thank Duane and his coaching team enough, especially coach Lu, for helping me fulfill my marathon dream!!!  I have participated in the Healthy Runner Coaching Program twice now and all the coaches were very supportive. Coach Lu would adjust the training plan to my schedule which made it easier for me to follow. Duane’s strength training helped me to get stronger so I can run faster without injury.  Coach Lu’s knowledge, tips, strategies and support not just helped me finish my first marathon but crushed my goal!  I recommend the Healthy Runner coaching program 100% if you want to take your running to the next level. Just be consistent and trust the process, you will crush your next race with this team!”

“I struggled to get back into running after being diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in my left knee. A friend of mine suggested I check out the Healthy Runner podcast and I’m glad I did! I was lucky to grab a spot in the Healthy Runner Coaching Program and I have gained so much from miles away. I’ve gained tools to be a lifelong runner through the run and strength plan. I’m constantly gaining more mobility and look forward to my future of running. Duane is a great coach that gives you personalized assistance and helps you understand any questions you have! I’m definitely getting my spark back!”

Working with Duane has been a game-changer for my running. I’ve been in an endless cycle of injuries for the past five years and needed to make a change.

I connected with Duane through his Healthy Runner Facebook group, and then we began our virtual physical therapy visits. Virtual sessions work great for me because I’m constantly traveling and can access care wherever I reside. Even though I’m not in the clinic, I still receive the same quality of experience!

The best part is Duane is a physical therapist, runner, and coach, so he understands how important running is for our physical, mental, and emotional well-being! If you want to become a stronger, healthier, and faster runner, look no further!
