If I told you today that in 6 months you would be running 50 miles, and the longest you have run to date is a half marathon, could you do it? Well, our runner for season 3, Steven Wiseman, is about to find out this weekend. We chat about what the last few days look like with his coach, Liza Howard. Mental and physical prep the week of and up to the start line and he tells us who he is running for. Enjoy the show.
Warren Pole of 33 Shake have been a partner with us at Becoming Ultra for almost a year. He catches us up on how business is going for the endurance nutrition product as well as what the holidays are like in London. Nutrition tips for the holiday season and a nice little hook up for listeners!
Look, Liza has no problem if you are wearing basketball shorts and cotton socks and you pass her. It's just that, this doesn't usually happen. A show about trusting a diagnoses and when no, you aren't getting old, you aren't fat, and you aren't out of shape. Listening to our bodies and when we should, and should not push. There is also a case for finishing even when it isn't pretty.
This show and all others in the series are about helping first time ultra runners and runners in general. Thanks for listening.
Steven is surprised about something he didn't plan for for his first marathon. You will probably be able to relate. That and more from his first marathon. Liza and Scott are just here for comic relief today.
