It's part two of the great No Meat Athlete Radio Resource Guide, and this time it's all about running.
Motivation, training guides, books, movies, podcasts, you name it, we cover it in this week's episode.
Today we kick off part 1 of a 2-part resources guide! First up, resources for new vegans.
In today's episode co-host Doug and I share our favorite documentaries, podcasts, books, websites, and more, all geared towards new vegetarians or vegans.
If you've listened to the past few episodes, you know co-host Doug was headed into this past weekend's 50k under prepared, and that pain was expected.
Crying at mile 15, now that was unexpected.
Half way through Doug found himself faced with the decision to quit or dig deep and keep pushing, even when he didn't want to.
In today's episode, we recap that race, and discuss the challenging of knowing when it's best to give up, and when to continue moving forward.
For something so simple, running brands sure put out a lot of gear.
In today's episode, we wade through all the junk, and take a look at the running gear we actually use. We discuss our favorite shoes, clothing, recovery tools, hydration equipment, electronics, and oh so much more.
Several months ago, I announced my marathon comeback. My intention was to focus on the marathon distance for the first time since qualifying for Boston.
Fast forward to today, and instead of being in week 8 of an intense training cycle, I'm hardly running at all. I'm officially in a slump.
But you know what? I don't feel guilty about it.
For the first time -- maybe ever -- I'm not beating myself up for failing at my original goal. I'm at peace with this lack of motivation and training.
As it turns out, NMA Radio co-host Doug is dealing with his own running slump of sorts, only he's 1 week away from a 50k, and his training looks a lot different than mine.
In today's episodes, we talk about those slumps, what we're dealing with, and how we're embracing the lack of motivation instead of fighting it.
