I recently made a pretty big mistake in running workout.  It was a mistake and my performance suffered from it.  but there were quite a few takeaways I wanted to share.  I am hoping you don't make this same mistake or you at least understand why you might want to make it.  Confused yet?  In todays episode I share my mistake and how it may relate to your training.

In my research review I discuss running economy.  Economy of movement is a critical aspect of improving endurance performance and it is something you can train to improve.  Since you never hear anyone talking about it though I figured I would share some research on the topic and a simple strategy you can use to improve yours.

I also had the pleasure of chatting with SGX Coach Jason Archer.  Coach Jason is with Crossfit North Phoenix.

He got into Spartan through a friend in the gym, and failed his first race (the Beast in big Bear), then vowed to do every race spartan offers at some point of another. That was in 2019.
 
Since then I've done close to 50 races both virtual and live, gotten my SGX 1 and 2, and encourage Spartan in my gym as a way of doing hard things.
 
He also developed the lifestyle brand, HardWodder and host his own podcast, HardWodder Radio.
 
This interview as a little different than my normal training interviews and I really think you will enjoy it.  Check it all out in this episode.
