“Embrace the Suck”

“Embrace the Suck”

This is an awesome article about mental toughness. I’ve never done an Ironman (though I plan to), so I’m sure I’ve never experienced the same degree of pain the author feels, but anyone who has raced hard knows on some level what it’s like when your body is spent, and the mental energy needed to push through. I haven’t tried the author’s exact techniques, but I have found that focusing on something (besides the pain) makes miles fly by almost unnoticed. No matter how mentally tough you are, you can always be better.
