    The Masters Running Masterclass with Claire Bartholic

    The Masters Running Masterclass with Claire Bartholic

    Coach Claire Bartholic wasn’t always a runner.  She started running in her mid-30s simply to get in shape for her high school reunion. She caught the running bug and finished her first marathon at age 38 in a respectable 4:02 and was immediately hooked.
     
    With dedicated coaching and training, she successfully lowered her marathon PR to 2:58, remarkably without injury, and entirely plant-based.
     
    Today, we talk about all things masters running including the common mistakes, misconceptions Claire often sees working with masters athletes.
     
    We also answer all your patron questions including ways to best prepare in your younger years, how to adjust your goals, how to increase mileage safely and how to recovery from long runs.

    The new science of healing with Dr. Jeff Rediger

    Dr. Jeffrey Rediger is a Harvard trained medical doctor and is the author of Cured: The life-changing science of spontaneous healing. 
    Today, Brodie and Jeff talk about the underlying lifestyle factors that hinder recovery and contribute to pain throughout the body. In relation to running, we discuss why some runners struggle to overcome their running-related injuries and are unable to achieve a pain-free state.
    Dr. Rediger discusses his 4 pillars to spontaneous healing, including Nutrition, Immune System, Stress & Identify. We unpack all these and how it applies to the running population.
    This is a fascinating conversation if you are interested on persistant pain and how to overcome it.

    Catastrophizing & Kinesiophobia hindering your recovery

    Catastrophizing & Kinesiophobia hindering your recovery

    Today's episode is for you to self-reflect on your past thoughts, beliefs, fears & anxieties when injured and how it can hinder your recovery. 
    We discuss the components of:
    Catastrophizing- 'To view or present a situation as considerably worse than it actually is'.
    Kinesiophobia- 'An excessive, irrational, and debilitating fear of physical movement and activity'.
    Brodie discusses 3 recent papers on this topic to bring more awareness to the situation:
    Paper 1: Changes in catastrophizing and kinesiophobia are predictive of changes in disability and pain after treatment in patients with anterior knee pain.
    Paper 2: Pain and disability in women with patellofemoral pain relate to kinesiophobia, but not to patellofemoral joint loading variables.
    Paper 3: Adding mindfulness practice to exercise therapy for femalerecreational runners with patellofemoral pain: A randomized controlled trial.

RaquelGCabrera ,

Great podcast!

This is a very informative and science backed podcast.
I have learnt a lot from it. I think every runner will benefit from it.
Make sure you listen to the 10 first episodes before you jump into the latest ones.

Informative and useful for runners

Brodie does a good job of putting physiology and sports medicine information together in ways that runners can digest and apply to their own situations. The info is based on his own injury experience, his clinical experience as a physio and his ability to listen to his interviewee experts. My running has definitely been more injury-free since I found this podcast.
