|I got this quote from http://www.runnersworld.com under the marathon training section... Mind Over Marathon. |
"Once you've reviewed your performance and learned from it, make notes in your running log. Remember that the hallmark of elite runners is not how fast they run; it's their ability to learn from trial and error and, as a result, improve performance. Good athletes have an extremely high tolerance for setback. None ever made it to the top without disappointment. Error and failure are natural, helpful components of an exciting, expanded life; they are not enemies to overcome. Appreciate their value and make peace with them."
