One to five topics, lots of love and enthusiasm and science, sometimes about running. With Megan Roche, M.D. and David Roche and maybe some appearances by Addie dog!
53. Improving Fatigue Resistance & Creativity In Athletics
We harnessed our ice-bath F-bombs to talk about the weakly understood importance of fatigue resistance in endurance performance, embracing athletics as a creative process, and being vulnerable. We appreciate you so much, thank you! WOOHOO!
52. Racing Tips & Improving Training Adaptation
We pranced like show ponies before talking about 5 tips for racing, outlook when things sometimes suck, and improving adaptation/reducing injury risk. Thank you all, we appreciate you so much! WOOHOO!
51. Heart Rate Variability & Identity
We embraced our inner magical creatures to talk about heart rate variability and how it might relate to training approaches, the complex illusion of identity, and putting work in a box. Thank you all! WOOHOO!
50. Ultra Training Principles & Dealing with Judgment
We celebrated the 50th episode (WOOHOO!) by talking about why you don't need to do huge volume in ultra training, self-judgment and uncertainty in life, and lots of bonus topics (SPACE FACTS!). We appreciate you all so much! THANK YOU!
49. The Importance of Eating Enough & Thinking About Overthinking
We stocked up on pizza and otter references to talk about the endocrine system impacts of low energy availability, the problem with overthinking, and a bit too much info about otters. We appreciate you all so much, THANK YOU! WOOHOO!
48. Transgender Athlete Rights Are Human Rights
Sports can be the difference between a fully realized identity and feeling alone in the world. Inclusion is about human rights because it is about identity and acceptance for people that have faced marginalization and discrimination. All real-world evidence supports the fairness of inclusion, and future scientific conversations need to be grounded in human rights.
So much love for you all! THANK YOU!
Amazingly positive vibes!!!
These two are not only great runners, but they’re smart, funny, kind, and extremely motivating!!! I listen to them while running and time flies! I love their intros and how they laugh and encourage each other. I am not only a better runner because of SWAP, but I have more self confidence to “shoot my shot!” David and Megan are so into self love and acceptance and it’s just what I need. Thank you!!!!
Thank you for fueling my passion
I originally heard David on Candice Burt’s podcast and just felt his wisdom hit me so so deep! I’m a mama who used to run distance competitively but haven’t run in 3 years, since having my son. And I’ve been horribly discouraged getting back into it. This podcast has helped me let go of imposter syndrome and being hard on myself. I’m loving trail running again and can’t wait to hit my first ultra!
Positive Energy and Love
These two amazing humans are full of positivity and love.
