After a much too long break from the last episode, I'm back with a jammed show. 2021 is here and hopefully, we see some OCRs get going more and more.
In this episode, I share my strategy for planning out my 2021 race season. If you need help laying it out, make sure you check out the Venga CBD's training calendar.
Do you use HIIT for your OCR training? Most miss the mark when they are using intervals. I discuss the point behind why you should use interval training and where so many go wrong.
In my research review, I share really interesting research on a jumping test that can predict your running speed. If you want to make the most out of your training to improve your running speed, you will want to listen to this one.
And finally, I interview Dr. Brianne Showman from Get Your Fix Physical Therapy. Brianne has a unique background as a therapist and a performance coach, so I was excited to get her on. We discussed some of the common areas that OCR athletes go wrong leading to an increased risk of injuries. I particularly enjoyed the topic of racing versus training and how these should look different. Brianne also shared some of her insight on barefoot training explaining how and how not to incorporate it.
