Life is crazy complicated sometimes and sometimes there isn't one thing you can do about it. Jules life is no exception. We dive in and see if we can pull out some chunks of time so she can manage it a bit better. Dealing with lawyers and serious life issues are in the way though, it's a good look for people dealing with stress and time management. We also talk a bit about her cold, rainy trail half a couple weeks ago and what to race in next. Enjoy this episode with Jules and her world class coach, Ian Sharman on the Becoming Ultra Show.
We are still following along Bailey and her journey to becoming an ultra runner but this week we wanted to take a side road to learn more about basic nutrition. We didn't even touch on race day and runner specific nutrition but the episode is full of recipe ideas and general principles for you and anyone else wanting to eat better on a daily basis. Enjoy the Becoming Ultra show!
Jules had some personal stuff come up today, and you know what, that's just fine. We will learn more about why she couldn't make it later but for now, we have a special episode! Ian Sharman will be coaching us through a trail half marathon. What to do the day before? Morning of? We go over the physical and the mental. Trail etiquette and race etiquette. We even go over post race nutrition a bit. For anyone that needs it laid out just a bit more detailed. This will be a good one to listen to. Plus, Jules is running one this weekend.
Bailey has been dealing with a literal pain in the butt. ITBS feels like a knife pushing into the outside of your knee so when the pain finally goes away, how do you train smart? That is the theme of today's show along with balancing work, life, and running to insure you are enjoying this pasttime of running. Michele also shares her experience last week in her own ultra competition!
Besides all of the hundreds of miles on trail, the nutrition, and strength training there is one thing that scares athletes of new sports. It's the gear. What do I need? What should I wear? Why is he or she wearing that? Do I really need to spend that much? Well, today Ian Sharman goes through most every gear you would need with his running student on the Becoming Ultra show.
