On this show:
– The best routine for marathon recovery? What kind of ramp up afterward to get back to 100%?
– A guide to solving low back pain from running (see below for details)
– Ironman training: How much of my running should I be doing at my open marathon pace versus my Ironman marathon pace? I did an open marathon in November in 3:04, however, at Ironman I hope to do 3:30.
– have you been running TOO hard?! The benefits of hard running but why you may want to switch to a lower effort for the majority of your training runs.
– HR training zone guidance for 10k (and long distance) running
– Nail the 10k in an Olympic and how to get your 10k Oly time closer to your 10k open time!- Avoid over-fueling in an Olympic-distance triathlon- 20 weeks out from a marathon and time to get busy – help! Is it advisable to build volume & work on strength simultaneously? If feeling overtrained do you have a preference as to which to decrease – volume or intensity? Plus how to add in hills with limited resources?

Kettlebell brand mention by Tawnee:
Solving Low-Back Pain
– pelvis is getting pulled forward by illacus and psoas, but pelvis is needing to be neutral or even slightly posterior tilted to avoid LB pain
– glutes stabilize hips – if you have weak glutes this allows pevlis to get pulled forward more
– glutes too weak + tight anterior muscles = pelvis tilts forward & more pressure on low back
– create strong but mobile anterior muscles (hip flexors); work on max hip flexion, i.e. pull knee to chest
strengthen hip flexors
overhead deep squats
See more on this Kelly Starrett MWod video to test your risk for low back pain: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kBkCoXPn_Ic
– if you are hunched and in excessive kyphosis this will actually add more pressure on the lumbar spine aka low back
foam roll T spine DAILY!
external rotation of shoulders
strengthen mid back/lats
“turn off” upper traps and neck
– maintain neutral feet, loose calves, etc. – alignment and good form starts here.
