Episode #194: Finding Run-Life Balance

EThanks to a listener suggestion, I come to you this week with 8 tips on balancing run training and life. It can sometimes be hard to fit it all in together, and that's true for everyone who is trying to smash big goals. Instead of listing the reasons why you can't, then focus on the reasons why you can. Throughout the discussion, I give you practical tips from my own life that includes 20 years of balancing my own training with grad school, career changes, kids, entrepreneur life, and coaching hundreds of athletes. If I can do it, you can too!

Episode #192: Rogue History and Recovery with the OOFOS Team

EIn this week's episode, I welcome special guests Scott MacPherson and Darren Brown in a fun, meandering conversation. Both are former members of Rogue Athletic Club (our former elite team) and now with OOFOS in marketing or sales. Scott's a 2:14 marathoner whose claim to fame is beating both Meb Keflezighi and Ryan Hall in races. Darren became part of the first father/son tandem in the US to break 4 minutes for the mile and later won the BAA Road Mile as an elite. While training with Rogue AC, they also worked with Rogue as employees and coaches. In this conversation, they share their perspective on Rogue history, talk about racing and training as an elite, and of course, give their tips and lessons on recovery from years of hard training. Note: this is not a paid episode, but OOFOS is a product sponsor for our virtual 5K series this summer called the Front Door 5K series.

Episode #191: Finding Purpose during the Pandemic

ETrack is back... major marathons are not. We start this episode with a recap of two mini track meets that happened this weekend in Utah and Oregon, including one in which the US 5K record was broken by the great Shelby Houlihan. Then, we turn to a quick discussion on the cancellation of the Chicago Marathon before switching to our main topic - finding purpose and motivation during this pandemic. The racing calendar is quickly being cleared due to COVID-19 which is making it harder and harder for many to stay motivated. If that's you, then I get it, and you aren't alone. I give you 5 reasons to run right now, and 5 tools to put to work to help you stick with it. The work you do right now matters for the long term, and I hope this episode helps you stay on track!

Episode #190: Seven Tips for Re-Building Your Fitness

EIt's been a weird time for many, and some of you may have gotten out of your running routine in the last several months for very valid reasons. You might be trying to re-start and don't know how best to do it. In this episode, I cover 7 tips for doing so that will optimize your chances for both staying healthy and for staying motivated while you rebuild that routine. With these tips, I answer questions such as: - How do you re-build your routine? - How do you build distance safely? - When do you add back strength work? And when do you add back speed? - How long will it take to feel "normal" again?!? I cover the above questions and more!

Episode #189: Be Relentless with Lisa Tamati

EIn this episode, I begin with a brief reaction to the cancellation of the NYC and Berlin Marathons and include a few additional tips on how to pivot from them to another goal (to build on the discussion from episode 188). Then, I turn to a fascinating conversation with Lisa Tamati, an ultra endurance athlete from New Zealand who has raced over 140 ultra marathons in her career covering over 40,000 racing miles! She's run across deserts and across the Himalayas and is the first woman from New Zealand to finish the Badwater Ultra Marathon. Badwater is a 135 mile race through Death Valley to the top of Mt Whitney, and Lisa finished it not once but twice! Most recently, she has been on perhaps her most difficult journey yet helping her mother recover from a severe brain aneurysm that left her completely without memory and unable to function. Over 4 years, Lisa used all of the lessons she learned from enduring in her ultra career to relentlessly pursue a return to health for her mom. That journey is chronicled in her new book - Relentless, How a mother and daughter defied the odds -and I am happy to report there is a happy ending as her mom has returned to nearly full health. Lisa teaches us a little bit about endurance and ultra training in this episode and a lot about being relentless in your training and in life. Listen in and then go grab one of her books at the links below or learn more at lisatamati.com.

Episode #187: Running as a Pathway to Truth

EMore or less every time I line up for a race or hard workout, there is fear that comes in those moments. I think about questions like... how much will it hurt? how will I deal with the path? will I respond or crack under the pressure? what if I do crack? Inevitably though, when faced with my physical, I do respond. It's not always great or perfect, but I learn something about myself every single time. I've also learned many other truths from taking part in the journey itself, both from my own revelations as well as the insights of my running friends and community. In this episode with many-time guest James Dodds, we discuss this big question. What has running taught us? What truths has it revealed to us and how do we relish in those moments to learn?

Episode #186: Be an Ally with Dionn Schaffner

EIn this episode, we take a pause from running content to talk again about the very important discussions taking place in our country on racism. With the help of long-time Rogue community member Dionn Schaffner, we dig into the ways that we can all help the cause by first educating ourselves and then taking action. As Dionn herself says, this is a time to educate, empathize, engage, and then expect others to do the same. She tells us how to do that in this episode. Here are some other resources to support you in doing that as well: Ways to support Black Lives Matter: https://blacklivesmatters.carrd.co/ Daily curriculum option for learning in 10/25/40 minute increments: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1H-Vxs6jEUByXylMS2BjGH1kQ7mEuZnHpPSs1Bpaqmw0/mobilebasic Brene Brown podcast with Ibram Kendi on anti-racism: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/bren%C3%A9-with-ibram-x-kendi-on-how-to-be-an-antiracist/id1494350511?i=1000476611079 75 things you can do for racial justice: https://medium.com/equality-includes-you/what-white-people-can-do-for-racial-justice-f2d18b0e0234

Episode #185: Good and Bad Fatigue, How to Assess and Manage Both

EIn this episode, I start with a discussion of the sadness, helplessness, and hopelessness I've felt during the last week after George Floyd's murder. I don't have answers, but I do know that action speaks louder than words. I am committed to action, and here are a list of resources where you can also do something to support the cause to end policy brutality and racism in our country: https://blacklivesmatters.carrd.co/ I know my words are no consolation for anything that is felt by the BIPOC community, but I also know that silence isn't an option either. Then, I turn to a brief discussion on the news surrounding the Boston Marathon and how you might think about that if you were registered for it. And finally on our main topic, I discuss how to identify, assess, and manage 3 types of fatigue in training - noncumulative fatigue, cumulative fatigue, and overtraining. Two of those 3 represent good fatigue and one represents bad fatigue. You need good fatigue to be your best running self. You have to balance stress and rest in an effective way to peak at the right time. This means that you will be tired in training, but you have to manage that tiredness appropriately so that you don't go over the edge. If you can do that, big things await for you when you do unleash that fitness on race day!
