Saw this on Facebook and really enjoy reading about the psychology behind ultra running. It’s such a large part of the battle.
When you run you have to listen to your body, but when you venture into Ultras you have to change your thoughts. Your mind starts to shout louder than your body at times when tackling 50/100/200 km. trying to fool you into thinking your body has had enough. But sometimes it’s just voices and your body has the capacity to do more. Thats when knowing what to listen to and what to ignore is important!!
