Episode Quotes

  • "It's actually more frustrating to be coming back from the injury - than the injury itself"
  • "People having timeliness to their goals is the biggest issue. I think goals are great - long term, short term, process and progress goals are great. Where it can start getting tricky is with progress goals. Attaching a timeline to a goal can be really tough. It can lead to potentially overtraining and tamp down the motivation"
  • "How many top triathletes are really good runners? All of them. That's why they are top triathletes. Don't be afraid that cross train will hurt your running. It won't."
