With 2017 ending now is the time to plan ahead for your 2018 race schedule and to gain insight on how you should approach your training for the best year yet. In this episode I share research on how Twitter can effect your race performance and some practical tips on how to maximize your sleep for recovery. In our coaches's corner I have on SGX Coach Matt Bouback with Power Combat Fitness. Former college wrestler turned fat guy turned OCR Athlete and Coach Matt has seen every aspect of change in his 20+years as an athlete coach and trainer. He started my career in the health and fitness industry in college when he got my personal training certificate. In the beginning he worked mostly with clients that were in the infancy of their fitness. Matt went from wrestling 134lbs in college to weighing close to 250lbs in about short span of two years. Living in hotels, eating like crap, and drinking as much booze he could get his hands on, almost cost his life and marriage. Since the very first race Matt has been hooked. He spent the better part of the last 3-4 years learning everything possible about Endurance Athletes and Competing in this environment. Not being a runner himself, he went from finishing at the middle of the pack in most races to finishing 5th at World Championships in 2016 in his age. Since his run in OCR begun he have been blessed to walk through some doors that have opened. Matt owns certifications in many areas from Nutrition to Performance and has worked with many athletes locally and around the world, which is supported with passion in this sport. Coach Matt shares his insight into the biggest training mistakes he sees OCR athletes make, how to create a complete and balanced training program, his takes on mobility training and why you might want to toss the foam roller, and his secret recovery and sleep enhancement tool.
