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

May 16, 2014

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!
