Show notes

  • Rather than place band aids on stuff, audit whats going on and ask “why?”
  • Think preventive NOT reactive
  • The quality of exercise determines the outcome
  • Neck issues are often result of us living in an extension based world

o   Made worse by stress and respiration issues (vertical breathing patterns).

o   Reset respiration problems by checking in throughout the day to see where breathing is coming from and focus on using nose not mouth.

o   Think “360 degree” breathing or “everywhere breath” around your low belly, sides and low back.

  • Shin splints/ Plantarfasciitis are often caused by overuse injuries (50% load, 50% muscles) and poor mileage management.

o   People often make the mistake of “running to get fit” when it should be “getting fit to run.”

  • Training shoe spectrum:

o   First and foremost ask –“how do you feel” in the shoes?

o   Practice home foot care; roll bottom of your feet, wiggle your toes, make an arch and work on ankle mobility.

  • Travel Fitness & Nutrition: Find things you can do when you’re traveling.

o   “You can’t make perfection out of an imperfect schedule.”

o   Focus on keeping a healthy routine, even as small or different as it might have to be.

o   Think 1 x 365%

o   Its not about the one off, its about the cumulative result.

o   Identify healthy snacks you love and bring them with you.
