Sport psychology has recently put a great deal of emphasis on the need of psychological preparation to sport competition. That is shown by the different publications found about this subject. However, there is a shortage of controlled research about the effectiveness of such training in aspects related to the athlete's performance. This research tries to elaborate and assess a psychological training programme specific for middle-distance runners, and, at the same time, flexible enough to be adapted to the every single runner's needs. The psychological training programme designed to achieve a peak performance has to be assessed, first, in controlled laboratory settings, in order to generalize the results obtained on the track event.
