How To Trick Your Brain Into Running Longer
Have you ever thought about running but been too intimidated to start? Or maybe you’ve already got an after-work jogging routine and need tips on how to increase your endurance? On this episode of How To!, we reveal the game-changing, unexpected running tips you didn’t know you needed with the help of Alex Hutchinson, author of Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance, and Shannon Palus, a Slate senior editor and marathon runner. Our experts say the key to running well isn’t how fast you go or how many times a week you hit the pavement—instead focus on training your mind to push past your limits. In the process you’ll ease your anxiety and build your confidence.
