So please do share.So what was my favorite excuse? Its too windy. Yes that exactly that was my main punchline. Windy as in actual wind, not passing wind. Nope farting wasn’t the issue. If you have that issue, don’t worry about it, nothing lightens up the mood in a running group if you squeeze a fart, and shout TURBO mode. Jokes aside…The reason you might be fartingcomes whilst running is that running usually speeds up your digestion process. Combine that with the pounding of your feet, and you get the fart frequency. There is another type of wind… The second wind… heard of that… what happens is… As your body pumps more blood through your muscles, you start to perspire and running usually feels easier… Other runners talk about a second wind when you are approaching the the 7 or 8K mark in a 10K race. Suddenly you get a boost in energy, a power surge, ignore the tiredness the soreness and booohmmm off you go suddenly at a much faster pace crossing the line in style. And now according to the British Medical Journal listen to this… Most likely, second wind is a mental thing, having to do with your neurochemicals or psychology, scientists believe. The BMJ notes that “second wind” phenomenon is similar to the concept of a “runner’s high,” which has been researched throughout the years.1.
Is it true? Is it true that I cannot run if it is windy? Have there been times when I had a great run experience anyway? 2.
Is it logical? Is it logical that just because I didn’t wear the correct running gear running in the wind isn’t for me? 3.
Is it helpful? Does having this belief enhance my chances of improving as a runner today or in the near future? If you can dispute your own beliefs, it opens up room for more productive beliefs and thoughts.Productive, positive thoughts enhance self–confidence, improve focus (Focus on what you are doing in the present), help you remain calm during pressure situations and create a positive mindset for competing. Accepting that you can’t perform perfectly and not seeking perfection helps you as a athlete to perform better… Better than yesterday, better than last week, last month and last year. Let’s close todays windy show… there is a great verse I want to share with you… John 3:8 “The wind blows wherever it wants. Just as you can hear the wind but can’t tell where it comes from or where it is going, so you can’t explain how people are born of the Spirit.”
