    S04: E04 - Marathon methods compared

    In this episode Brian compares three Marathon programs to draw inspiration for Lisa's Tokyo Marathon campaign. And in the wake of Mary Cain's powerful description of the physical and emotional harm she suffered at the Nike Oregon Project, we rant about ignorant coaches that focus on weight as a training outcome. Lisa starts enjoying running again as the stress list diminishes. Meanwhile, Brian is about to run a half marathon off a consistent but very light training regime.

    S04: E03 - Minimalist marathoning

    S04: E03 - Minimalist marathoning

    In this episode we're talking about a minimalist approach to achieving a performance goal time for the marathon. Realising that high mileage is an unlikely pathway for Lisa to run a sub 3:00 marathon, we talk about the bare minimum required to get her to the start line healthy, injury free, and with a fighting chance of realising her goal. Brian is gaining fitness and is now targeting a half-marathon in November. Meanwhile, Lisa is in recovery mode having eliminated some items off her stress list.

    S04: E02 - Making a stress list

    In this episode Lisa is on the couch after a DNF in the Half Marathon at the Melbourne Marathon Festival. In a long therapy/coaching session we discuss the impact of stress on health more generally, and offer some strategies to avoid, eliminate, and even delay stressors by making a stress list. Finally, we get down to the business of adjusting training load to account for burnout. Meanwhile, Brian is slowly building up the kms and beginning to show signs of a return to fitness.
