If you don’t want to hear jokes, laughter, or a bit of “language”, then this isn’t the episode for you (or perhaps an episode for little ears either). I had a blast—and I mean a blast—chatting with husband-wife coaching team of performance psychology expert, Simon Marshall and three-time world triathlon champion, Leslie Paterson.
We discuss the following:
- Differences in coaching men versus women and how they view racing
- Radical candor
- Eating disorders and how they’re very common in the endurance sport industry
- Latest research around depression and social media
- How to determine if you’re using social media for “stalking”
- The interesting way they finished their book
- Team “S*it”
- What to pack for a race
- What to think about when showing up for a race
Serena Marie, RD, and I discuss some listeners’ questions about what we ate before and during our 2015 marathons and our experiences with food. It took us a little while to remember what we ate! We also talked about how Serena has qualified for Boston three times, whether she has run it, and if not, why.
Since I interviewed two coaches for this episode, and right now I am in an intensive coaching class to become certified by the International Coaching Federation, we discussed how to best be of service to runners.
I am working with clients on how to take a holistic approach that is grounded in positive psychology to their lives. I would love to work on certain areas of your life in which you want to see shifts and so much more!
If you’re looking for a training plan, I’m not your girl. If you want help with your energy management, deeper relationships, and/or productivity that matters, then we could be a great fit. Send me an email at Kari@TheRunningLifestyle.com, and we’ll be on our way.
