With optimism I have been able to pursue every goal, win medals, earn American and world records, but more importantly, I’ve been able to be resilient in the face of injury and falling short. Optimists are dreamers, believers and solution seekers. I believe that these lessons are universal and not running exclusive.

STRENGTH TRAINING WHILE TRAVELING 33:52 BODY WEIGHT vs WEIGHT TRAINING ROUTINES 36:09 STRENGTH TRAINING FOR HALF MARATHONS 41:54 FAVORITE STRENGTH TRAINING SUCCESS STORIES KEY TAKEAWAYS: Injury prevention is the #1 reason runners should lift weights. Strength training twice weekly for 45-60 min each delivers maximal benefits. Running is an impact sport, it’s you vs the ground. Runners don’t have to lift more than twice a week. Lift weights AFTER you run, not before you run. Take two minutes rest in-between each exercise. Strength training delays fatigue.

Lessons from The Breaking2 Project with Dr. Skiba
On May 6, 2017, three runners attempted to break the two-hour marathon barrier. Kenya’s Eliud Kipchoge ran the fastest marathon in history at 2 hours and 25 seconds. Dr. Phillip Skiba was part of Nike’s scientific team for the Breaking2 project. He is board certified in both family medicine and sports medicine, with a PhD in Exercise Physiology. He spent several years in the UK as Director of Sports Medicine at the University of Exeter, and developed the equations, algorithms and software systems used by the British Triathlon Federation in their successful quest for gold at the 2012 London Olympics. Skiba's work is now in use at several Olympic training centers and helps train the fastest runners in the world. If you haven’t watched the Breaking2 movie, you can do so for free on Youtube. Although the target sub 2-hour goal wasn’t achieved, the project shows us what is possible, and more importantly, how we can go about improving performance. There is so much to be learned in this episode. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. We discuss: Is it possible to break the 2-hour barrier in the marathon? Why was this project important? The training variables they focused on with each runner. What he would do differently next time. Applications that can be used for every day mortals.
