Races are back!!! Who knows how long this will last, but it is good to see some racers getting out there and back to OCR. Even if you aren't ready to race or can't get one yet, this episode is loaded with great info to keep you on track and ready for whenever your time comes.
In this episode I cover a topic that I see more and more people struggling with. If we have been use to defining ourselves with racing and have used that as our primary form of motivation, how the hell do you stay excited about training? I cover some of the strategies I am personally using plus some that are working for my clients to keep motivated when no race date is in site.
In my research review I discuss some interesting findings on achilles tendinopathy (like tendinitis). This research shares some insight on why you may develop achilles issues and what you can do about it.
And finally in my coach's interview, I have on SGX Coach James Bailey. I have personally had the privilege of working with Coach Bailey for quite some time now. I have seen his transformation and seen how amazing he is doing on the race course. James shares how he made the switch from power/strength lifter to OCR athlete and covers his experience about the Spartan Race in Jacksonville. He shares his thoughts on getting back into training and what to expect if you are planning on racing again in 2020.
All this and much more.
