Real Life Runners I Running and Health in a Family-Centered Life
About This Show
This is a show to help real life runners to improve their running and their life, through conversations about training, nutrition, health and wellness, family, and all the crazy things that life throws at us. We want to live the best life we can and to help others do the same. In each episode, we will tackle topics that will make us better runners, better parents, better friends, better partners, and better people. The lessons that we learn from running can carry over into all aspects of our life, and we are here to explore those connections through current research, our experiences, and stories from real people out on the roads and trails, just like you. We are Kevin and Angie Brown, husband and wife, mom and dad, coaches, and runners. Kevin is a marathoner who has been coaching runners for over a decade. Angie holds her doctorate degree in physical therapy and uses running as part of her integrated fitness routine. Together, we want to help make running more accessible to more people, so that more people can gain the benefits of being a real life runner.

032: When More Doesn't Make You Better
5 days ago
In a world where everyone wants more all the time, is that really what is best? When is more a good thing, and when is more just, more? This is a big pitfall for a lot of runners. People get better and faster when they start adding more miles or more speed work, so they think that continuing to add more will continue to get them better and faster. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. More mileage will make you a better runner. Speed work will make you a faster runner. However, we can't just endlessly add mileage or keep dropping times in our workouts just for the sake of doing so. Many times, our bodies are well-served by maintaining a given training level until our body has reaped all of the benefits from that level before moving on to the next. Today, we talk about: The 4 fundamentals of running that every runner needs to focus on in order to continue to reap the benefits of training and stay healthy and injury-free When it is appropriate to level-up your training When it's a good idea to just continue doing what you're doing Why our culture of instant gratification can hurt us as runners The two keys of getting faster Why it's sometimes good NOT to focus on those two keys during our training Hope you enjoy it!!
