Research shows that the lessons learned in the early school years are powerfully embedded in the subconscious brain. While it is natural to feel anxious and then receive negative hormones when we depart from these hard-wired patterns, conscious actions can re-train the ancient brain. The cognitive focus on specific run segments/set amount of walks, can hard-wire new patterns in the reflex brain.
This gives you control over your attitude as you feel the positive results from using strategic walk breaks. Through the use of mantras and systematic actions, you empower the conscious brain to take control. This frontal lobe component can over-ride the subconscious brain and retrain it to accept and embrace Run-Walk-Run.
