Susan has been dealing with an injury for a month and is just about ready to start running again!  What does that look like for her training? What are some of the mental aspects of coming back from an injury.

Also, we giveaway some sunglasses from our sponsor Goodr.!

Susan might have a stress fracture.  Her orthopoedic doc ordered up the dreaded boot to take precautions.  It is healing up but until then, some changes in the training.  This is a common issue that we are trying to nip early in the training cycle!  

Enjoy the show and Susan's optimism!

Red had a great time in Michigan and made the haul back to Texas to start what will be her biggest week of the training so far.  Listen to this most recent coaching session!

Thanks for listening!

Nov 20, 2017

Susan is ramping up the miles and focusing on base building in Florida.  We dive into a bit of the mindset to add unique terrain in her runs and where exactly we are going to find elevation gain in the flat state!  It's a good call that many should learn at least something from! Thanks for listening.

The temps are dropping in Wisconsin as they do this time of year and James had to put on some layers for the first time this year.  Besides that, he learned a little about himself on a 50/50 effort out and back training run. We also trouble shoot a little knee pain.  He is coming along and we hope you enjoy the show!

Nov 6, 2017

Susan is flying high after her "best birthday gift ever", a running retreat in Moab, Utah.  We talk about her experience in the desert and how it completely rejuvenated her.  We talk about her schedule to make sure the first couple weeks of formal training make sense and make sure she has no questions going into it all. 

Her energy is electric. We hope it passes on to you and we definitely hope you learned something useful!

Nov 5, 2017

Red had a tough week but still found a way to get in most of her running and strength work.  We talk about taking guilt out of the equation when life happens and training sometimes doesn't.  We also go over her training for the coming weeks including a big three day stretch.

 

Enjoy the show!

Susan has quite the story.  Losing a brother to a car accident and getting hit by one only a few years later changed her "why" when it came to running.  She is training for a desert 50k from the beach and those challenges are both interesting and exciting for both coach and runner.  Enjoy getting to know her on this episode!

Oct 23, 2017

Rebekah just got done with her 50 miler and it was NOT a  great experience.  It happens.  What you do next is what really matters. This coaching call was about that next thing.  Gaining the confidence in the process and yourself so you can dive in and go for it.  

Oct 20, 2017

James has a 50k on Saturday and yes, the words 5k race did appear in the schedule.  He promised he wouldn't "race" it though. Listen to his prep and all about the first year 50k event with the funky first vs. second half topography.

Be sure to wish him luck!

Rebekah comes to the show as a referral from one of our other coaches, Liza!  That's pretty awesome really. She is training for the Zion 100k. Like most of our runners, she has a family and busy work/life balance so figuring out how to get the most out of her training during a Chicago winter will be interesting and fun!  

 

Enjoy the show and we hope you learn something today!

Oct 17, 2017

Jen Cryblskey is another runner from San Antonio.  With a busy work schedule and going back to school, and having a family, she has some interesting obstacles for her training.  We find out what motivates her and what she is training for on this first show!

Enjoy.  Also, reach out to her and tell her you are rooting for her!

Oct 13, 2017

James Wright stays home with his 3 kids, has a popular YouTube channel to manage and calls running his hobby.  Working around these variables and his wife's schedule is the first piece of the puzzle.  Then, we just talk expectations of the training and let James get ready for his 50k in the next couple weeks!

The Be Accountable Coaching (BAC) program is in it first season.  It's a chance to listen in on live coaching calls and to support someone training for something big!

We hope you enjoy.

The Be Accountable Coaching program is the solution to scaling accountability within a community created online and on a podcast.  We hope you come along the way and support the runners and the movement!  This is a short show about why and how this is going to work!
