S04: E03 - Minimalist marathoning

October 28, 2019

In this episode we're talking about a minimalist approach to achieving a performance goal time for the marathon. Realising that high mileage is an unlikely pathway for Lisa to run a sub 3:00 marathon, we talk about the bare minimum required to get her to the start line healthy, injury free, and with a fighting chance of realising her goal. Brian is gaining fitness and is now targeting a half-marathon in November. Meanwhile, Lisa is in recovery mode having eliminated some items off her stress list.

S04: E02 - Making a stress list

October 20, 2019

In this episode Lisa is on the couch after a DNF in the Half Marathon at the Melbourne Marathon Festival. In a long therapy/coaching session we discuss the impact of stress on health more generally, and offer some strategies to avoid, eliminate, and even delay stressors by making a stress list.
