This is the first episode I recorded since completing the Lebec Spartan Ultra Beast. So it seemed fitting to talk all about how it went. Before I get into the details of the race though, I share some of my insight on recoverying from a race. One big question I see come up online is when should you get back to training after a race. Unfortunately I see some pretty bad advice to this question. In this episode I share some of my thoughts on how to recover from a race and when you should start training again.
In my research review I look at fatigue. There are many reasons why you fatigue and see a decrease in performance. But how much of it is in your head? I share some interesting research that explains the truth behind why you slow down.
And finally, instead of me rambling on about the Ultra Beast, I thought it would be fun to get a guest on that went through it as well. I have on Rachel Munoz who was the 1st Place 30-34 female finisher. We got to finish the race together and I thought it would be fun to reminisce on all the pain we went throught together.
Rachel shares her training process for this race, her in race nutrition and hydration strategies, recommendations for others who are hoping to race the Ultra, and her race recap. We get into a ton of good topics that will help you regardless of the type of race you are training for here.
All this and much more.
