Here is the mental trick. Force yourself to run beyond the landmark – even if it’s only a few steps. If I have chosen a crossroads or corner as my goal, I run around the corner. Sometimes I only run ten steps around the corner or beyond the goal. I often find, however, that I can keep going because I have endured through the difficult part of my run or the scenery has changed and I want to keep going
This mental trick can help you in other parts of your life. If you think you can’t keep going, find a point to rest and then turn the corner. Hang in there a little longer than you thought you could. Things might get easier!
