    215. Different Energy Systems for Different Distances in Running

    On this episode of the Marathon Running Podcast, we learn about the aerobic and anaerobic systems. We dive into the interplay between the ATP-PC and oxidative systems, how these systems work together to fuel long-distance running efforts, and the importance of running economy and efficiency. We also discuss the importance of speed
    training for marathoners, effective workout strategies for building a strong aerobic base, and specific workouts to maximize both the ATP-PC and oxidative systems.

    Additionally, we explore training periodization, race-specific
    training, and the role of factors like race day strategy, mental preparation, nutrition, hydration, and sleep hygiene in optimizing marathon performance.

    By understanding and effectively training both the aerobic and anaerobic systems, runners can enhance their performance and achieve their marathon goals.

    214. The effect of hormones on your running performance

    214. The effect of hormones on your running performance

    In this episode of the Marathon Running Podcast, we learn all about hormones and how they affect our endurance. With our expert guest Kelsey Pontius, we discuss the relationship between hormones and running performance for both men and women. Hormones like cortisol, testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone play crucial roles in energy levels, muscle recovery, and overall endurance. Women experience hormonal fluctuations throughout the menstrual cycle, affecting their performance and recovery, while men need to monitor testosterone levels influenced by stress and training. Nutritional adjustments are important for maintaining hormonal balance; women may need more iron and calcium at certain times, and men should ensure they get enough zinc and vitamin D. Long-distance running impacts hormone levels in both genders, so balanced training and recovery are essential. Managing stress through proper training, diet, and recovery is key to supporting hormonal health and optimizing performance for all runners.

Love this podcast!

The training on a treadmill episode came out just when I needed it.

And the Pinky and the Brain reference at the very end was the cherry on top!

Great to listen to during your long runs!

Enjoy listening to the wealth of knowledge this podcast provides. I usually listen to several episodes during my long runs, and something in the podcast is always applicable to what I’m currently experiencing in my training.
