We have a special guest! This week, I got to talk to Kaio-kensi, jammer for Montreal Roller Derby AND neuroscientist. Topics covered in this super duper ultra mega length episode include concussions and brain safety, treating chronic illness as an adversary, great tips for habit building for recovery in training, breathing training for asthma, knowing when to push yourself and when to stop, spoon theory, and we even find out a little about her figure skating background. Ready to learn some stuff? Let's go!
