ATU: Grooming Your Will to Suffer, Yay or Nay to Cortisone, Ice Baths, Can Weight Training Ruin Ultra Racing, A ‘Beer Ultra’ Race, and More

Lucho and Tawnee team up to answer your questions on:

-Risks and benefits to cortisone shots. Specifically: dealing with a torn muscle with an ultra approaching — get a cortisone shot to relieve pain and still be able to run, or not?
-Cross-training sabotaging ultra racing? Strength training more and now running slower.
-Are ice baths worthwhile or is it a waste of time energy?
-The role of the placebo effect in things like recovery tools.
-Garmin HR monitor woes.
-What makes your “will to suffer” stronger? At what point does the “will to suffer” stop? How the hell do you override that “will to not suffer”?

-Training in fire conditions when air quality sucks.

-Buying maltodextrin — brands, suppliers, etc.

-A new ‘beer ultra’ concept with a 24-hour race that combines running and beer with a points system
-and more!
