Mental Training for Runnersby Jeff Galloway
Generations of exercisers and athletes have struggled with the motivation to get out the door, to continue on tough days, or to push through the final barrier of discomfort to the long awaited goal. This book describes the source of problems, how to diffuse them, with methods that can keep one motivated. The unconscious process of stress build-up often sends body and mind on separate missions. Galloway provides a series of mental training methods which can bring body, mind, and spirit into a powerful team. Each major area of low motivation is noted with proven ways of overcoming the problems. Many runners have applied these methods to work through other low motivation challenges at work, in the family and in other areas of life.

Jeff Galloway is a great motivator! I used many of his techniques listed in this book to run my first half marathon and even faster than I had planned! I met many people at the race that were using his method and loving it! I am planning to run a full marathon next, and that is something I thought I would never do. Buy this and you will not be disappointed.
