Today we are back talking the NO bullshit ways to get good and stay good. We talk about misunderstanding Vo2Max… why focusing on increasing your
I recently got to speak with Claudia Sorensen all about fascia, our beliefs, and how injuries show up. We had a really fascinating conversation and
2020 has sure thrown a curve ball when it has come to our races. For most of us, they simply got cancelled.
And as challenging as that has been, it really brought to the forefront what Charlotte and I and plenty of athletes have been discussing pre COVID.
That while races are great and have really helped us grow, they shouldn’t be the stand alone reason we train.
If the only reason we get up to train each day is for a race or some outcome goal, then what happens when it’s over?
Do you choose to lose all that hard won fitness, strength and habits that have made you healthy?
We hope not.
Because what is becoming more apparent is that THE EVENT IS LIFE.
And when we train for life, our fitness, our strength and our overall health will allow us to seize opportunities that come up. And more than that it allows us to keep playing.
With our kids, grandkids, friends and family.
And that’s what it’s ultimately about.
When we train smartly and consistently and with our life circumstances in mind, we don’t need these big builds to events that can take a toll on all parties involved.
Our training process allows us to not only have fun, but develop robustness of soft tissue and cardiac fitness. Then we have a body we can leverage at shorter notice for our big races or adventures.
The Event is Life is about being an Athlete for Life.
That is what we aim to inspire you with here at Endurance Specific.
