This is by far still one of my favourite lockdown/covid19/race revolution quotes!
What do you do to prep for a marathon? How do you run a marathon the day-of?
You eat well. You get rest. You run longer and longer distances to condition your body and mind. You look into the future and think about what will get you there. You don’t rush. And the day of the big race, you set a nice steady pace.
It’s hard right now because we don’t know when this race will end. We don’t have an end date but we do know we need to NOT wear ourselves out so we can make it through. Don’t exhaust yourself. I know that can be hard and it’s something I’m struggling with as well!
Go to therapy, find ways to rest your soul & mind. Build up your resilience and find tools to help you cope.
Let’s not lose site of that big day when this time has passed and the frame of mind we want to be in, especially when it comes to our mental health & wellbeing.
We’re in this for the long run.
