    Episode #285: 9 Common Mistakes in Managing Injury

    Episode #285: 9 Common Mistakes in Managing Injury

    Managing running injuries is hard for so many reasons. One reason is that the prevailing wisdom on these injuries is generally just wrong, making it very hard to know the right things to do.
    In this episode, I give you 9 common mistakes that I see when people try to manage their running injury, and how to find a better way.
    It starts with a realization that running issues, niggles or injuries are a part of training and pushing your limits, even when you are doing everything else right. You job isn't to hope that they stay away, but rather to learn how to proactively address them before they take you out of training altogether. This episode will help you do that.

    Episode #284: The Seasons of Running

    Episode #284: The Seasons of Running

    On this show, I talk a lot about the mechanics of training and the X's and O's of each period in training. In many ways, that's the easy part. It's the what-to-do in training part including the workouts and long runs and miles per week. How to do it is a little harder, however.
    In this episode, I breakdown the seasons of a training cycle and talk about how to approach each one in terms of your mental approach and preparation. You will learn when to back off and be conservative and when to press the edge. You will learn when to refine each element in your race day gear and nutrition, as well as when to have your mental tool kit fully assembling (+ what that should include). 
    This episode is all about making sure you peak at the exact right time, and with fall races around the corner, it's the right time to be thinking about just that.

    Episode #283: Running in Heat + Positive Self-Talk

    In this episode, I give you a mini-smorgasbord of topics from recent questions I've received from athletes. 
    First of all, I talk about the practical elements of training in the heat including how to do a sweat test and how to plan your daily hydration with electrolytes.
    Then, I talk about how to transform negative self-talk into positive self-talk in 4 practical ways that will help re-program your brain to avoid some of those negative thoughts that can bring us down.
    In this episode, I reference this article from Alex Hutchinson, a great read:

    Episode #281: Pre-Gaming and Post-Gaming Your Runs

    People ask me about carb-loading all the time and if they should do it before a long run. Well in this episode, I answer that question and talk about what to do before and after your long runs and quality workouts in order to execute them at your best. Fueling. Hydration. Sleep. Movement. Mental Game. Those are the key components to optimize your pre-gaming and post-gaming. Listen in because you might be suprised at my answer on carb-loading!

    Episode #280: The Power of Progression

    Episode #280: The Power of Progression

    In this episode, I teach the why, the what, and the how of a very important training principle... the power of progression. From warm-ups to easy runs to workouts and races, your goal should be to start a little slower and finish faster at every opportunity.
    Learning to execute your runs in this way will teach you how to enjoy your best workouts and ultimately to race your fastest. It is easier said than done, however, so I break down all of my tips on the topic in this episode. Listen, learn, and then go practice it yourself.

When can we read your book?!

Chris, your experience, wisdom and perspective as a coach and runner is so valuable and helpful to me as a 37 yo mom of two who still wants to get faster and do big things. Thanks for sharing so much for free! You really should write a book about running and longevity. 😀

Takes running knowledge and depth to another level

As a recreational but competitive runner I’ve loved listening to Chris on his coaching and running experiences. I’ve learned a lot of new concepts I had never heard of. Keep up the amazing job!
