    124. NYT Journalist Lindsay Crouse on Investing in Women, Power, and Running Journalism

    124. NYT Journalist Lindsay Crouse on Investing in Women, Power, and Running Journalism

    A Senior Staff Editor and OpDocs producer at The New York Times, Lindsay Crouse's most-read and watched work includes:
    How the 'Shalane Flanagan' Effect Works I Am 35 and Running Faster Than I Ever Thought Possible Nike Told Me to Dream Crazy, Until I Wanted a Baby I Was the Fastest Girl in America, Until I Joined Nike (browse all of her work here) Lindsay is one of the foremost voices for women in running, helping us better understand structural inequities that lead to gender inequality and power disparities in the sport.
    After earning a history degree from Harvard University while competing in track and field and cross country, Lindsay moved to New York City and worked in a variety of editing and journalism awards before finally landing at The New York Times.
    As a senior producer of OpDocs, she's produced memorable videos about the marathoner Memo and Walk, Run, Cha Cha (which earned a nomination for an Academy Award).
    Lindsay is at the forefront of current affairs in the running world, highlighting how power is often unjustly wielded by the powerful against those with very little of it.
    But she's not just a running journalist - she's a runner! And quite a fast one at that... just this past fall, she raced 2:53 at CIM, scoring a sub-3 marathon and improving on her PR by a massive 6 minutes.
    In this conversation, Lindsay and I discuss her work, its real-world impact on the running community, and what draws her to these stories.
    We also talk about:
    The changing culture of distance running Why representation matters, particularly for female athletes How we shortchange women runners through coaching and science Whether being a runner has helped her break these huge stories Why so many runners consider quitting (but shouldn't) Lindsay Crouse is someone to watch in the world of running. As a near-Olympic Trials Qualifier working for the "newspaper of record," breaking the biggest stories in running, she's an exciting figure in the industry.

    123. How to Build Mental Toughness & Mindset Mastery

    123. How to Build Mental Toughness & Mindset Mastery

    In high school, my indoor track coach always told our team to “get out of your comfort zones!” This valuable mental toughness training always reminded us that racing is certainly not comfortable…
    And over the years, my ability to hone mental toughness into a skill to be used at will became easier and easier.
    In the beginning, it wasn’t that way:
    I sandbagged workouts just because I didn’t feel good I “settled” on placing 2nd or 3rd in races because I was afraid to believe in myself I’ve even dropped out of races for no good reason other than my head wasn’t in the right place Even now, I have experiences that shake my sense of self-belief.
    In 2015, I DNF’d an ultramarathon (my first and only attempt).
    In 2019, I was disqualified for cutting the course (by accident) of a trail race.
    These experiences shook my self-confidence and made me question whether or not I even possessed any mental toughness.
    But I soon realized that I wasn’t approaching mental toughness in the right way. It’s not an issue of whether you “have it” or “don’t have it” – it’s an issue of, “are you working on it?”
    That’s because mental toughness training is an ongoing practice that must be cultivated over time.
    You’re never “done” with developing this valuable mental skill – just like you’re never “done” with workouts, long runs, or recovery runs as a runner.
    This episode also includes an announcement about Mindset Mastery, our new coaching program. It's now open for up to 20 runners but registration closes on Monday, February 3rd!

    119. Jason Coaches a Master's Runner on Goal Setting & Training Upgrades

    119. Jason Coaches a Master's Runner on Goal Setting & Training Upgrades

    This coaching call is with a runner named Dena about training and goal setting as a Master’s Athlete. She’s about to turn 41, she’s running well, but she wants to make sure that she continues to do so as a Master’s runner.
    And there’s no doubt that when you start getting older, running starts getting harder. Recovery is slower, adaptation takes longer, injury risks are higher, and we all experience declines in reaction time, muscle mass, VO2 Max, and so many other factors that affect our running.
    In this conversation with Dena, we’re talking about the training updates that Master’s Runners can make to stall the aging process, continue to improve, and reduce their injury risk. We also discuss goal setting and how Dena can continue to keep things interesting as she runs far into her 40’s.
    You’ll notice that I spent a fair amount of time encouraging Dena to train for shorter races and to lift weights. Both of these goals are similar in that they are strength and power oriented - precisely the skills that we must word harder to preserve as we get older. 
    In fact, you can see a big case study on a runner named David at strengthrunning.com/david/, who at age 73 (!), recovered from a major injury and qualified for the Boston Marathon, by focusing on his strength and power.
    If I could have every runner over the age of 40 practice two simple things, it would be speedwork and weightlifting. Not just for the strength and speed, but just as much for the hormonal benefits of both. These activities provide a big hit of testosterone and growth hormone, helping spur adaptations, muscle growth, and recovery. Exactly what older runners need.
    I encourage you to visit our website at strengthrunning.com/strength/ and learn more about the incredible benefits of weightlifting for runners, get some example exercises and other case studies, and see how your running can be transformed with a focus on strength and power. And of course, our email courses are always free.
