    Mastering Intensive Challenges - Run Larapinta - Episode 9

    Mastering Intensive Challenges - Run Larapinta - Episode 9

    Thank you for listening to the ninth and final episode of the Mastering Intensive Challenges - Run Larapinta series.
    If you’ve listened to the series, you’ll know my friend Ed Litton and I entered a four-day stage trail running event, the Run Larapinta Stage Race, and ran, climbed, descended, scrambled and walked with 200 other enthusiastic participants along a mountainous and rugged trail in the spectacular red centre of Australia.
    Ed and I thought these conversations on the podcast might help others in setting and completing endurance exercise challenges, something we both prioritise in supporting our well-being to keep bringing our best selves to work in the ICU.
    In this episode, we thought we’d record a final episode to reflect on how we have recovered, what the whole experience meant, what we learned from the challenge and what might be next for each of us?
    Thank you for listening.

    Mastering Intensive Challenges - Run Larapinta - Episode 8

    Mastering Intensive Challenges - Run Larapinta - Episode 8

    This is the 8th episode of the "Mastering Intensive Challenges - Run Larapinta" series and if you’ve been listening to the previous ones, you’ll know that this episode is coming out after the four day stage race that fellow intensivist Ed Litton and I set ourselves the challenge of running many months ago.
    Two Intensive Care doctors, both novices at trail running, looking for something moderately hard, something we could do together, and something we could talk about on the show to hopefully inspire you and other listeners to go for a run or to set yourself your own exercise challenge.
    We’ve had regular conversations in the lead up to the event, held from August 24th-27th, on the spectacular Larapinta trail, near Alice Springs in the red centre of Australia, and now it’s time to tell you how it all played out.
    Did we make it? Were there obstacles? How hard was it? And did it measure up to our expectations?
    Thanks for listening.

    Mastering Intensive Challenges - Run Larapinta - Episode 7

    Mastering Intensive Challenges - Run Larapinta - Episode 7

    Fellow intensivist Ed Litton and I signed up for a big challenge 10 months ago when we registered to run in the Run Larapinta, a 4-day stage race in central Australia. We’ve both completed many endurance events, however neither of us have done any serious trail running nor have we ever run 130km in 4 days on a rocky and mountainous trail like the beautiful Larapinta trail in the Northern Territory of Australia.
    It’s now only a week away so Ed and I had a conversation to update each other on our recent training before answering 5 questions we thought were worth asking each other at this final stage of our preparations.
    What’s worked well in our preparations? What’s not worked well in our preparations? What’s the focus of the remaining time? What have we learned from taking on this challenge? What is exciting us about the upcoming challenge? We hope you’ll enjoy listening to the conversation, and that it might inspire you to get out for a run or for any type of exercise that suits you.
    Thanks for listening.

    Mastering Intensive Challenges - Run Larapinta - Episode 6

    Mastering Intensive Challenges - Run Larapinta - Episode 6

    To help Ed Litton and I get really prepared for the Run Larapinta stage race we are only a few weeks away from competing in, today we bring a seasoned ultra trail running doctor on to the podcast to share her advice.
    In this sixth episode of the Mastering Intensive Challenges series, we welcome Dr Cheryl Martin, who is an Emergency Medicine specialist, a podcaster and has huge experience in trail running, including ultra marathons.
    Cheryl’s podcast, the Mind Full Medic podcast, explores health, wellbeing, optimal performance and professional fulfilment, with a focus on doctors and healthcare. I love listening to it, and the best bit for me is that Cheryl has interviewed a bunch of endurance athletes including several high performing ultra runners.
    Today we thought we’d ask Cheryl lots of questions about our training and our preparations including heat adaptation, nutrition, footwear and other aspects that will hopefully help us to complete this event successfully.
    We hope you’ll enjoy listening to the conversation, especially if you are a trail runner yourself. If not, hopefully it might inspire you to get out for a run or for any type of exercise that suits you.
    Thanks for listening.

    Mastering Intensive Challenges - Run Larapinta - Episode 5

    Mastering Intensive Challenges - Run Larapinta - Episode 5

    This is the fifth episode in the Mastering Intensive Care - Run Larapinta series. Ed Litton and I are back on opposite sides of Australia, and neither of us has had the perfect three weeks since we last chatted.
    There are now less than seven weeks until the event starts, so we chat about our training, then swing over to what we are each thinking about the logistical challenges we will be presented with.
    We hope you’ll enjoy listening to the conversation, even if you prefer the couch to your running shoes. If we can inspire you to get out for some exercise, that would be even better.
    Thanks for listening.

    Mastering Intensive Challenges - Run Larapinta - Episode 4

    Here is another episode in the Mastering Intensive Care - Run Larapinta series. For this one, I travelled to Perth to meet with my Run Larapinta co-participant Ed Litton and to head out for a few runs together over a three day weekend.
    We also set up the microphones to update each other with our preparations and to discuss our perspectives on the social aspects of exercise, mainly endurance sport. We talked about group training, family support, and even using the social media platform Strava to share inspiration.
    We hope you’ll enjoy listening to the conversation, whatever exercise you choose to do.
    Thanks for listening.

Andrew - thank you so much for these podcasts. They provide fantastic insights into the work we do and can only help us all become better clinicians - and perhaps more insightful people. I have been sharing them with as many colleagues as I can - has to be the best way to promote the insights shared...so impressed - well done !

Andrew - I’m a new ICU consultant also doing PhD and these podcasts are priceless. I’ve adopted many of the ideas from the masters. And to hear about how to make work and life balance is brilliant - all this condensed advice from people who know. I also love the humility they all have despite their epic achievements. Inspiring mate keep it up.

I am a podcast junkie, working in a Regional ICU as a ICU nurse- I’m loving Mastering Intensive Care. Congratulations Andrew, there is so much all of us can take away from you and your guests. I wish some would come out and present and inspire!!!
