What is a Psyching Team?
The runner who expects to complete the race in 3:25–or feel utterly defeated;
The first-time marathoner, wondering what he’ll do when he hits “the wall”;
The runner who knows that she is too keyed up but can’t calm down;
The runner who can’t stop thinking about a current crisis in his family life;
The runner coming back from injury and insecure about how much she can handle.
Each of these runners can benefit from a few minutes’ conversation with a member of the Psyching Team. Commonly-used peak performance strategies include goal setting, relaxation training, imagery, positive self-talk, and affirmations. Psyching Team members trained in these methods will tailor the technique to the particular person. It’s fun, it's free and it’s helpful. What more could you ask?
