In each rehearsal, you are taking cognitive action to prepare and then you are taking conscious control on the days you’re faced with the challenges. This stops the flow of negative attitude peptides and stimulates the production of positive ones. By facing adversity, you desensitize yourself to it. The actual stress on the body is minimal. The reflex brain tries to steer you into pleasure and away from discomfort. This subconscious entity simply monitors stress and triggers low motivation and negative attitude hormones when the level rises a bit too high.

The studies show that when a goal is written on a calendar, there are more running days per month resulting in a higher level of fitness. The cognitive act of choosing a race and writing it down activates the frontal lobe. As you look at the calendar and review your training schedule, you’ll use this executive brain, taking control away from your subconscious reflex brain. This reduces the chance that stress will cause negative attitude hormones to be released. But if they are, you can focus on the goal, go through the plan, and keep regaining control over the process.

During each walk break, the endorphins lock in and the attitude improves. This also activates the frontal lobe, which is the executive brain. The left side of this uniquely human brain logically identifies the underlying problems in making a decision. Next, this logical center will break down each problem into manageable issues, with a rough concept of each problem. Logic can only go so far in making difficult decisions. That activity takes place on the left side of the frontal lobe. To shift gears, I’ll re-focus for a while on the rhythm of my steps, on what’s going on around me: the trees, the clouds, the people, the other animals.
