Here are Skloss' key recommendations for runners seeking to enhance their mental toughness:

1. Develop Resilience: Resilience is crucial for runners, allowing them to bounce back when they encounter challenges. Skloss advises focusing on what you can control, especially during times of injury or recovery. 

Setting realistic goals and tracking your progress can provide motivation and build resilience. Additionally, proper nutrition can contribute to physical resilience by aiding in the body's healing process.

2. Handle Adversity: Every runner will face adversity at some point, making mental preparedness essential. Skloss suggests approaching adversity as an opportunity rather than a roadblock. When adversity is viewed as a challenge to overcome, runners are more likely to push through and achieve their goals.

3. Maintain a Positive Mindset: Skloss underscores the significance of a positive mindset in successful running. While starting a run with a positive mindset is beneficial, maintaining it throughout the run is equally crucial. 

Runners are encouraged to remind themselves of their goals and past successes when faced with challenges. These reflections can help them stay motivated and focused.
