  • Episode 4-463 – Jason Karp – Sexercise
    The RunRunLive 4.0 Podcast Episode 4-463 – Jason Karp – Sexercise  (Audio: link) audio:http://www.RunRunLive.com/PodcastEpisodes/epi4463.mp3] Link MarathonBQ – How to Qualify for the Boston Marathon in 14 Weeks - Chris’ other show à Intro: Hello my friends and welcome to episode 4-463 of the RunRunLive Podcast.  I’m writing this early in the week because I’ve got vacation time this week and I’m trying to get ahead as much as possible.  Those of you who have been listening for many years may remember that we used to push out a show every week.  I switched to fortnightly so I could have the off week to work on other projects.  That’s how I was able to push out the MarathonBQ, not so much by rigorously working on this other work on the off week but more by just creating some breathing room.  Some mental space. It’s going to be a tight week for me.  It was Labor Day long weekend up here in the States – so Monday was a holiday.  I hadn’t noticed this when I scheduled this vacation for Wednesday through Friday.  So I’m working only Tuesday this week and trying to cram a week’s worth of stuff into it. I’m traveling down to Pennsylvania, about a 7-hour drive from my house, with my wife to poke around a little.  Then we’re going to meet the Extra-Milers for a race next weekend. I am still not running.  I am still on my workout cadence of Swim, Bike, Lift.  And, I was able to locate my wetsuit.  I’m looking forward to shaking the dust out of that tonight and giving it a try at the pond.  The weather is starting to get a little colder.  It’s in the 50’s in the mornings.  Tropical storm IDA dumped about a ½ foot of rain on us last week.  So, the pond water is dropping in temperature.  The wetsuit also makes swimming easier and safer.  It’s designed for triathletes and give you flotation in the placed you need it to help your form.  And, if for some reason you get in trouble, there is no way to sink wearing a wetsuit.  You float like a cork.  So maybe I’ll go a little bit longer this afternoon. The knee feels good.  I feel good. I’m tempted to start running again.  We’ll see how this walk/run of the ½ marathon this weekend feels.  Today we have got a very interesting interview for you all.  I managed to corral Dr. Jason Karp to talk about his book “Sexercise”, where he explores the connection between fitness and sex.  And, probably not surprisingly, there are a lot of connections.  Fair warning, if you’re triggered by people having a frank discussion about sexual activities, (all very clinical and non-titillating), If those kinds of talks bother you, you might want to skip this one.  In section one we are going to talk about race volunteering.  And in section two I’ll continue on my mindfulness sessions and talk about how to keep from following your monkey mind into the ditch. I’ve taken this opportunity of a relatively stable and relaxed training schedule, combined with work from home, to begin a 30-day structured morning routine.  I’m following Hal Elrods’ Miracle Morning routine.  I’ve done it on and off for years, since interviewing Hal way back when on the podcast.   The routine follows the mnemonic “S.A.V.E.R.S”.  The first S is Silence.  This can be prayer or meditation.  I’ve been kicking off my days with 10 minutes of meditation.  The A and the V are Affirmations and Visualization.  I have selected a small group of affirmations I read through or recite and I have selected a simple set of goals and outcomes, like visualizing my knee healing, that I go through.  Then the next E for exercise, this is where I used to get stuck, because my training schedule was such that I would have some massive workout on the calendar and that would overwhelm the rest of the process.  This time around I’m simply doing a 2-minute plank every day during this morning practice and doing my actual workout later in the day after work. Then R is for reading, and I’m doing 10 minutes of some sort of reading.  Right nowI’m working through “The Untethered Soul” – which is really good for this type of small read and think about it format. Then the last S is for Scribing or writing.  Most people use this for Journalling, but I’m using more as a creative space for my existing writing practice. The whole practice ends up being about an hour.  I’m getting up at my normal 6:00 AM wake up time.  I’m 8 days in. I wouldn’t say it’s changing my life but it is helping me be more focused and less likely to get stressed out over something that pops up. On days when I’m under time pressure and have to be out of the house, I can squish it down to a 20 or 30 minute practice.  Why do you care?  Because we are about to go into a busy and potentially stressful period of everyone’s lives.  It might help to have a practice that helps you through that.  With work from home and the current environment it’s conducive to these types of practices.  You have an opportunity to use circumstance to your advantage.  You might want to look into that, Seize the opportunity as they say!

A competitive runner since sixth grade, Jason quickly learned how running molds us into better, more deeply conscious people, just as the miles and interval workouts mold us into faster, more enduring runners. This passion Jason found as a kid placed him on a yellow brick road that he still follows as a coach, exercise physiologist, bestselling author of 12 books and 400+ articles, and speaker. He is the 2011 IDEA Personal Trainer of the Year and two-time recipient of the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness & Nutrition Community Leadership award. His REVO₂LUTION RUNNING™ certification has been obtained by coaches and fitness professionals in 25 countries.   Section Two – More minfulness - http://runrunlive.com/mindfulness-in-practice-surfing-the-energy-wave   Outro   Ok my friends we have sexercised through the ed of episode 4-463 of the RunRunLive Podcast.  Was it good for you?   I’m rushing to put this one out, because I was out on vacation most of the week.   Sorry for being late!. It’s a lesson learned, I suppose.  Sometimes I don’t discretely plan the time I need to do this and hope it will take care of itself.  Inevitably it does not. The good news is that I managed to write a bit, but I also managed to get some down time.  The bad news, if there is any, is that puts me a bit behind schedule.  I did run the Bird in Hand Half marathon Saturday.  “Run” might be too strong of a word.  I hiked it with a couple of the Extra-Milers.  They were doing the Run/Walk and I just hung out and talked.  I’ll do a race report of sorts next episode.  My knee is fine from it.  I did feel a little soreness and a twinge up on of the hills but nothing lasting. I am very weak in my legs and I don’t like the feel of it.  I’m going to start a rehab routine on knee and leg strength and flexibility for the rest of September.  I think I have another local race to volunteer for next weekend.  After that I’m going to run/walk the virtual Boston.  Based on my experience here I think it’s quite doable without hurting myself.  I’ll leave you with a lesson from project management.  I was reminded of this when driving home this weekend.  There’s an highway exit from 290 to 495 in Massachusetts.  It’s different because it’s a left exit, meaning it goes from the fast lane of the highway into a sharp off ramp.  This is one of the very few left exits in Massachusetts. You can tell it gives people trouble.  Drivers are surprised by it.  It causes accidents.  You can tell as you approach the road is filled with tire marks where people have slammed on the brakes and slid off the road.  There are lots of crashes here. I have a theory on how this dangerous intersection came to be.   It’s the based on the “Iron Triangle” of project management.  This is basically a rule of thumb for project managers that every project has three outcomes that you are measured on.  First is time.  A project needs to be done within a certain schedule.  If it is late, it causes problems.  The second is cost.  Every project has a budget and o one wants to exceed the budget.  The third is quality.  When the project is complete you need to get the thing that you planned for.  A functioning end result. That’s what makes project management tricky – you are always balancing time, cost and quality.  The iron triangle rule says that you can only really get two of those.  For instance, as usually happens, someone comes to you and says they want a different outcome, They want a three story building instead of a 2 story building.  That change is going to cost more time or more money or lower quality or a bit of all three. I think the bureaucrats and politicians were in a project meeting around this off ramp.  They were probably behind schedule and over budget.  Some bright young engineer said “We could skip this whole off ramp design and just make it a left exit. That would put us back on budget.” The result was a perfectly good, ultimately surprising, unnecessarily fatal off ramp.  That’s what predictably happens when you try to bend the iron triangle of project management. Think about that as you consider that new kitchen. And I’ll see you out there. My Apocalypse show ->     MarathonBQ – How to Qualify for the Boston Marathon in 14 Weeks - Rachel -> Coach Jeff ->

  • Episode 4-462 – Eddy – Fit over 50
    The RunRunLive 4.0 Podcast Episode 4-462 – Eddy – Fit over 50  (Audio: link) audio:http://www.RunRunLive.com/PodcastEpisodes/epi4461.mp3] Link MarathonBQ – How to Qualify for the Boston Marathon in 14 Weeks - Chris’ other show à Intro: Hello my friends and welcome to episode 4-462 of the RunRunLive Podcast.  Today we’re going to focus on self-awareness and being in the now and how that helps you deal with hard things and also helps you work with what you’ve got. I have not run a step since we last spoke.  My new strategy is to actually rest my knee and see if that helps. Not sure why that wasn’t my first strategy…  But, we all have to go through these thing sin our own ways.  The knee doesn’t hurt and there is no loss of mobility or anything.  Every once in awhile I’ll feel a twinge when I’m walking Ollie or doing something weight bearing – but in general I’m feeling strong, healthy and happy.  I’ve got a nice cadence going of lift, bike, swim – with a longer ride on the weekend.  I’m really enjoying the summer days and the work from home.  At 5 o’clock when the work whistle blows I can leave my office, jump on my bike and go for a ride or head down to the pond and go for a swim or head over to the gym for a weights session.  It’s a very nice rhythm. It strikes me that I have found this rhythm partly by circumstance, the external factors of the plague and my knee being injured, but also by meeting the universe where it is. Meaning, because of my mindset practices I’ve somehow turned a this into a quite pleasant situation.  I’m at the point now where I’m in good enough practice in all three routines, weights, bike and swim, that I look forward to it and can get a good, hard workout in.  I’m particularly happy about the swimming.  Like I said before, I wasn’t too confident because swimming has always been hard for me.  But, I seem to have cracked the code when I trained for that Olympic tri a couple years ago.  Apparently, I retained that stroke knowledge.  It frankly, amazes me that I can just wander out into the pond after not swimming for 3 years and knock out a satisfying 1,000 meter swim.  I can’t imagine what people think when this old dude rolls up at the public beach, puts on goggles, wades into the water and disappears over the horizon.  Most years I wouldn’t swim in that pond in August because it gets too warm, but with all the rain it’s stayed temperate.   Anyhow, summary is I’m in a good place, keeping the weight off and staying fit. This week we will talk with Eddy who I ran into on YouTube.  He’s a retied guy trying to build a social media empire.  He did a 5K a day for 30 days video that I loved, so we talk about that and some other stuff. In section one I’m going to give you a primer on how to start lifting weights if your strength curious.  In section two I’m going to talk about awareness.  And how awareness allows us to choose how we make our way in this world. I’ll tell you a story.  I needed a haircut this week.  Even though I don’t have much hair anymore, I like to keep it short and comfy, especially in the summer. So I went over to SuperCuts.  They said I had to wait 10-15 minutes.  So I sat down in a chair to wait.  It was very busy in there.  Apparently we are in the back-to-school season and the place was full of kids acting like kids.  People were coming in and out. The hair cutters were keeping up their chatter as they do. It was a bit of an imbroglio. Imbroglio is one of my fun words I use to let people know how much I love words.  It is basically an Italian nominalization – which means to turn a verb into a noun.  It’s a version of the English word embroil.  So, basically an intricate mess with a lot of moving pieces.  Anyhow, it was a bit of a noisy imbroglio in the SuperCuts.  I decided, since I hadn’t done my mediation yet, this would be an excellent use of the 10-minute wait.  You might say, ‘why would you try to meditate in a noisy, busy place in an uncomfortable chair?’ And the answer is, why not?  What’s different for the noise in my own head and this noise of the store? Noise is noise.  Meditation is not the cessation of noise.  It is the observation of noise, the awareness of noise.  I used to practice this form of peace when I traveled.  It works great in a busy airport or airplane.  Or to get to sleep in a strange place.  You picture yourself, or more appropriately observe yourself sitting in the environment.  You visualize a clear shell or forcefield around you.  All of the noise and chaos is outside the shell.  You observe the noise and chaos, but you let it go. You are aware of it’s externality.  Then you focus on your breathing.  And you relax into your beautiful, shell of peace within the chaos. When the lady called my name early it took me a few moments to come out of it.  I was deeply relaxed.  I had to shake it off to get my hair cut. Because, if you can only achieve mindfulness in a comfy quiet room with a statue of the buddha surrounded by candles, you’ve probably got work to do.

After careers in the Royal Air Force and then as a Police Officer, I took early retirement in 2016 at aged 50. I did this as I felt that my health and general happiness came before the pursuit of perceived career success, or financial status. In March 2021 I was also diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, which undiagnosed, has had a profound impact throughout my life and those around me. I now live in Tyneside (UK), with my two gorgeous border collie dogs Lilly and Setu. In this channel I hope to inspire you with ideas and provide the tools to improve your physical and mental health, your relationships, spend more time in the outdoors, get involved in volunteering and much more and all of this without the need to spend a lot of money.   Section Two – Awareness -   Outro Ok my friends we are aware of and have observed that we have arrived at the end of episode 4-462 of the RunRunLive Podcast.  Awesome sauce. I got a couple nice notes this week.  One from Jim, who commented on the presentation I made to my work group.  I got recognized in this week’s team call for helping people stay on their fitness routines.  I had another email from Brian who is running Boston this year and has watched that 2018 video of Eric and I running in the storm a bunch of times and told me it gave him inspiration. As much as I love to feed my own overblown narciscism, my point is not that it makes me happy to get good feedback.  My point is, like I told Eddy, you never know who you are going impact.  It may be 20 minutes of throw-away musing on your part but once you let it loose on the world it may find the person who needs it and resonate with them.  Don’t ever underestimate your own power and impact. Lean in.  Let you light shine.  Meet the universe where it is. I was supposed to go down and pace Dave in his 24 hour race last weekend, but he ran headlong into a 3-day heat wave and pulled the plug at 100K.  He made the decision early and waved me off.  Over Labor Day I’m going to volunteer for the .  By the way, we’re having the Wapack Trail Race this year on Sept 5th. Come on up and run 18 miles of technical single track.  One of my favorite races on one of my favorite trails.  Links in the show notes.  I do intend to go down to Bird in Hand and stumble around the half with the extra milers the weekend after Labor Day here in the states.  Yvonne, that’s my wife, Yvonne and I are going to wrap a road trip around it and poke around Amish country.  Does that make me officially old?  Then I’ve got to figure out where I’m going to walk the Boston Marathon in October.  I’m leaning heavily towards connecting with the ZERO for Prostate cancer people and doing it for Tom.  It’s a small thing, and it feels self-promotional, but, hey, lean in and listen to the universe when it talks to you! Ollie news is all good. We had our first training session with K9 training up in Nashua and it went really well.  He’s doing great.  One lesson and he’s already walking on the slack leash and not pulling at all.  This morning I walked him out to the garden, told him to stay, went inside the garden to water my Columbian tomatoes and pick some produce and he stayed the whole time, waited patiently for me to come back out.  I took him for a walk in the woods yesterday and he was slack leash the whole time.  Even on the down hills which keeps me from having to dig in on my heels and stress my knee.  Really happy with this training.  Can’t wait to start running again and get him to run on a slack leash. One of the current supply chain problems is dog food.  I can’t get his Eukanuba dog food.  Last couple times I’ve had to get something similar, but not quite right.  Currently he’s eating the “Large Breed Puppy” category of food.  Hopefully this won’t turn him into an Irish Wolfhound puppy.  I had our old friend Dirt Dawg present to my fitness team on mindfulness this week.  I really admire Mike’s work as a high school principal and how he’s able to lead a purpose driven life.  He said something that struck a chord.  Teach what you need to learn.  Teach what you need to learn.  I see Mike from the outside as a purpose driven ultrarunner who has figured out how to stay mindful in a high-stress environment.  Mike sees himself as needed to learn, and practice these very traits.  And that is part of his practice.  He teaches what he needs to learn so that he can not only help his kids and his peers but also as part of his self-awareness practice.  And that’s what I want you to think about this week as you go about your life.  The reason I’m here talking to you is that I needed to teach what I needed to learn.  It is part of my practice to talk about these things.  The practice is not because we have it figured out.  The practice is precisely because we don’t have it figured out.  We teach what we need to learn.  And, as we are teaching what we need to learn, I’ll see you out there.

  • Episode 4-461 – Jackie - Sidelined USA
    The RunRunLive 4.0 Podcast Episode 4-461 – Jackie - Sidelined USA  (Audio: link) audio:http://www.RunRunLive.com/PodcastEpisodes/epi4461.mp3] Link MarathonBQ – How to Qualify for the Boston Marathon in 14 Weeks - Chris’ other show à Intro: Hello my friends and welcome to episode 4-461 of the RunRunLive Podcast.  Today we’ve got a great chat with Jackie from Sidelined USA an organization that helps athletes deal with career -ending injury and rebuild for a positive life.  In section one we are going to talk about Molly Seidel.  Because she’s a great story on so many levels. In section two I’ll give you a quick report out on the century ride I did last week with my running bros. Yup, took a day off from work and went for along ride with Frank, Tim and Brian.  We rode out to Rockport and back.  Tim made a movie out of it you can see on YouTube if you google “” The big news from my side is that I had a follow up appointment with my Knee doctor and the new MRI shows that my injury is not getting better.  Let me explain, because I have a better idea of what the injury is now, and I think I can explain it better.  Before, when I got the first MRI in May, he said I had a ‘stress fracture’.  That’s misleading.  It is more of ‘stress reaction’.  On the MRI it’s a cloudy spot, like a bruise, not a jagged crack or break.  Picture a pirate flag with the skull and cross bones.  Those cross bones on the pirate flag are the femur bones.  That’s the big bone that plugs into your hip socket at the top and rests on your knee at the bottom.  If you look at the depiction on the pirate flag the end of the bones have these two pronounced knobs sticking out at the end of the bone.  That’s not really what they look like but it’s a good illustration of the area I’m talking about.  Those knobs are chondral. The left chondral on my knee has this stress reaction.  Inside the knob, the chondral is a spongy material.  This is where my stress reaction is.  So, you could say it’s a persistent bruise inside the chondral.  Why is it not getting better?  2 reasons.  First reason is that it can naturally take a long time to heal.  Second reason is I’m a compulsive idiot and won’t stay off it.  A couple other points.  First, unlike a tendon or ligament injury, this isn’t going to create scar tissue.  It’s just going to eventually heal.   Second is that you don’t want to completely stop using it, you need to keep the joints in motion for it to heal properly.  Another point is that this area does get good blood flow.  This will help it heal eventually without it getting chronic.  The doctor says I can still bike, hikle and do any other exercise.  You can’t reasonably stay off it.  It just takes awhile to heal.    There is a treatment where they inject something into that spongey material, like a cement or gel to basically fill up the space and create structure in there, but that sounds a bit invasive to me. Other than that, the knee cartilage and meniscus are fine.  So, I’ll just stay off the running for a few more months and give it a chance to heal. The challenge I have, that you all already know is that there is no other exercise as simple, effective and fulfilling as a good long run.  I’m having to work really hard on my diet to make up for those 3,000 calories a week. Biking, swimming and lifting are great, but they require equipment, and a venue.  Running is open the door and go.  And, Ollie can’t do those other sports with me.  Anyhow, that’s my update.  Now I just have to focus on staying fit and sane until it heals. My friend Tom from my running club lost his fight with prostate cancer last week. It left us all a bit shaken.  I’ll tell you a Tom story.  You know I’ve been heart rate training for many years.  I remember posting my heart rate efforts and my zones.  Tom, who was always curious about new ways to improve his running, would quiz me on heart rate topics when we got together.  He was quite concerned because, while my resting heart rate is in the high 30’s his was in the mid-70’s.  So my zone 4 efforts were his zone 2 efforts.  I had to talk him down off the ledge and assure him that everyone was different and there was no normal.   I don’t think he was happy with that answer.  Basically, that I was reptilian in my HR and he was more of a hummingbird.  Tom always showed up.  Always helped.  Never complained. And we’re going to miss him. On with the show!   About Zero ZERO — The End of Prostate Cancer is the leading national nonprofit with the mission to end prostate cancer.

Vision To see athletes create a positive mindset within themselves, requiring their personal best, in order to confidently face and overcome their challenges, both on and off the court/field. Invitation Sidelined USA, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, operates entirely on the generosity of the community - individual donors, foundations, and companies.  Will you join us in empowering medically sidelined athletes to find their own “comeback” stories?  What We Do Sidelined USA serves the community of permanently sidelined athletes in three ways: RESOURCES - We publish research-based articles and interviews to assist in a healthy adjustment and psychological recovery. CONNECTION - We connect sidelined athletes to others who have experienced a medically-forced exit from competition through our Sidelined Stories interviews and our online connection group. NEW PURSUITS - We inspire and equip sidelined athletes to adapt to their new reality by re-engaging with the sports world through alternate avenues. LEARN MORE▸ Additionally, we engage in original research, education, and advocacy projects in order raise awareness for improved after-care of medically disqualified athletes on a national scale. RESEARCH - Recognizing a significant lack of data related to medical disqualification in the U.S. and the limited research on the psychological impact of medical exit from sport, the Sidelined USA team is currently engaging in two research studies to better inform the sports medicine community about best practices for the after-care of medically disqualified athletes. EDUCATION - Our team provides education for athletic trainers, coaches, parents in order to raise awareness of the psychological impact of a medically-forced exit from sport and provides guidelines for best practices on supporting sidelined athletes in their transition forward. ADVOCACY - Sidelined USA recognizes that for far too long there has been a significant gap in resources to support medically disqualified athletes in their transition forward. We advocate for additional research and data collection and are teaming up with up with national organizations to create a standard of care for medically disqualified athletes.     Section Two – Century in the Rain - Outro Ok my friends we have had a career-ending injury that has forced us to the end of episode 4-461 of the RunRunLive Podcast.  Now to find some other way to burn 3,000 calories a week.   I went down to the local pond, you might call it a lake, but in New England it’s a pond.   Interestingly ‘pond’ originally meant an artificial body of water.  The original English word was pound.  We still use that in New England in the original sense, with the term, “lobster pound”… which means a tank of water you keep live lobsters in.  Anyhow, I went down to my local pond after weightlifting at the gym this week.  Went out and swam a ½ mile.  Felt good.  Out of shape, but my form is good.  I managed to find my googles and ear plugs.  I did find a swim cap but it disintegrated when I tried to put it on.  My wife thought that was hilarious. I’ll have to dig out the old tri-wetsuit as it gets colder.  Right now, that’s not a problem.  We had a mini-heat wave last week and the top couple feet of water in the pond is very warm.  It’s still cold under that, so I could dive down to cool off.   I was a little apprehensive to swim out into the middle of the pond.  Since Covid the local news has been filled with people drowning.  It seems, just like in the trails, people who wouldn’t normally be at the local water holes are, if you’ll excuse the turn of phrase, diving right in.  Many of them have gotten into trouble.  It got me to thinking that I haven’t swum for a couple years, and I’m just the kind of guy they describe who overestimates his ability.  But, like I said, it felt fine.  I had some cramping in my feet and my form got a little sloppy as I got tired but for the life of me, I don’t think drowning is an outcome to be worried about.  I think what’s gets people in trouble is that they get a cramp or something and then panic.  When you’re in the water panic is bad.  The more you fight the water the harder it is to stay afloat.  So, anyhow, swimming.  I do still have a couple of races on the calendar.  I’m still going to go down to the Bird in Hand half.  Even though I am going to stop running altogether.  I’ll hook up with my Galloway walk/run friends and have some fun.  Then I have the virtual Boston Marathon in October.  Looks like I’ll have to full-on walk it.  So, any ideas on a good 26.2 mile hike I can do?  Maybe collect some donations for Prostate Cancer?  That sounds like a worthy cause. Lemons and lemonade my friends.  This morning I thought my club was having a brunch run, so I picked up a traveler of coffee at Starbucks and headed over.  It wasn’t until I passed them all out on the road, they were running, that I realized I’d goofed up and the brunch was next weekend.  No worries, I just parked my truck at the town hall and set up a coffee aid station for when they came in.  Then mounted up on Fuji-san and rode the river trail end-to-end for a quick 25ish mile.  Gotta keep showing up and make lemons from lemonade. Every day is an opportunity.  I’ll see you out there.   My Apocalypse show ->     MarathonBQ – How to Qualify for the Boston Marathon in 14 Weeks - Rachel -> Coach Jeff ->

  • Episode 4-460 – Larisa on Burnout
    The RunRunLive 4.0 Podcast Episode 4-460 – Larisa on Burnout  (Audio: link) audio:http://www.RunRunLive.com/PodcastEpisodes/epi4460.mp3] Link MarathonBQ – How to Qualify for the Boston Marathon in 14 Weeks - Chris’ other show à Intro: Hello my friends and welcome to episode 4-460 of the RunRunLive Podcast.  Here we are in July – moving into August of 2021.  We’ve turned the corner on summer and the days are already getting shorter up here in New England.  What’s the update?  I have more doctor’s appointments than an 80 year old.  I’m 6 months into the sore knee.  I tried to increase my mileage last time we talked, but the knee got sore so I took a week off from running.  I had my second MRI and we’ll have a follow up with the knee guy to see if they can figure out why it still hurts.  He saw a stress fracture in there originally, but there’s something else going on.  We’ll figure it out.  And if he can’t give me an answer, I’ll kick him to the curb and do my own rehab. Doctors! I’ve been riding my bike a couple times a week and hitting the gym to lift.  I feel strong but it’s not the same. One of the things that challenges me is those 3,000 calories a week I’d normally burn running.  I really have to watch what I eat, or I balloon up.  And even though I’m eating fairly clean, I’m not losing any weight because I’m just not burning those calories.  I eat about 2,000 calories a day, no sugar, very few carbs.  I haven’t had a sandwich in 9 months or a real pizza.  The cauliflower pizza isn’t bad, but it’s not what I crave! I went down and volunteered as a course marshal for the local Appleman Triathlon.   I’ve run that race a couple times.  It’s an interesting course.  The bike course has 4-5 monster hills and the run course has a technical single path trail section that challenges people.  Especially the non-trail runners.  And it was raining on Sunday, so they did that in the mud! It was good to get out and volunteer.  Cheer some people on.  Good to see people racing again.  I’m taking a day off to ride a century with my old running buddies this week.  Should be fun.  We’re going to ride to the coast.  There may be a brewery involved.  I mentioned last week that I have been corralled to lead the fitness project for my team where I work.  I was out hunting for guest speakers, and I ran into today’s guest Larisa.  Larisa runs that helps high achieving individuals who are experiencing burnout.   So of course I signed her up for an interview.  We have a great chat.  She is doing honorable and worthy work and I think it should resonate with some of you.  I know it resonated with me. In section one I’m going to talk about the Olympic Marathon.  In section two I’m going to talk about how athletes deal with career ending injuries. I’m still working on turning my other podcast the After the Apocalypse serial into a book.  It’s been hard.  What with all the agents calling me and fighting over the right to represent me.  Throwing money at me.  Fans storming the table at book signings, hanging on my every word, begging me for signatures.  And daytime TV producers trying to squeeze me into every broadcast.  It’s exhausting. All that stuff will happen.  It just hasn’t happened yet.  But I’ll tell you something that has happened.  One of the people at work is teaching us a course called “Infinite Possibilities”.  It’s a lot of the stuff you already know.  A little Tony Robbins a lot of The Secret.  If you don’t know The Secret it’s a book and movie that basically says you can manifest anything you want by focusing on it. So, for instance, if you want a new job, you write down all the attributes of your dream job and visualize it.  If you keep visualizing and affirming that vision of the new job the universe will hear you and step in and give you what you want.  Voila – you’ve got that new job of your dreams. The basic premise is that your thoughts create your reality.  Now, I’ve read all this stuff and done it all before.  I was doing a bit of eye-rolling in the sessions. I don’t really think The Secret works, at least not in the magic way they lay it out. There were exercises.  One of the exercises is to pick something, anything, and manifest it.  Some people pick a hawk feather and all of a sudden, they find feathers everywhere.  Some people pick a coin, and they find coins everywhere.  I figured I’d play along and chose to manifest a ten-dollar bill.  I took one out of my wallet and visualized it.  Three weeks went by without my ten-dollar bill showing up.  Because, like I said it’s a bunch of magical thinking and hokum.  I figured I’m meeting the universe halfway because I’m always out on the road running and riding so if anyone is going to find a ten-dollar bill it’s me.  You know, don’t make the universe work so hard.  I was starting to get a bit aggravated what with all these people finding their feathers and coins and me sans ten dollar bill.  I could’ve asked for a $100, right?  Ten bucks aint nuthin! Where’s my ten bucks mr universe? A little scene painting now. I live at the end of a cul de sac. I’m the last house. So in front of my mailbox is a circle of pavement. My driveway dumps out into this circle of pavement. I went for my long ride today and came back in through the circle and up the driveway.  My wife was home. She had a flat on her bike, so I fixed it. She left to go for a ride over at the rail trail, so I jumped in the shower.  After my shower grabbed Ollie and we got in the truck to go downtown to the police station to pick up my gun license – long story for another day.  As I back into the circle I see what looks like leaves on the spread around the circle by my mailbox and up on my lawn.  So I throw it in neutral, get out and take a look.  It’s a one dollar bill. A crisp, new, one-dollar bill.  And another, and another, and another… and I’m thinking to myself, “ok it’s not a ten-dollar bill but…”  And I keep picking them up.  5, 6, 7, 8, 9… And that’s it.  9 one-dollar bills. Then I’m hunting around in the bushes looking for number 10!  But I didn’t find it. So, I guess the universe discounted me a dollar for not believing in it’s hokum.  Or maybe Massachusetts has a 10% manifestation tax. Anyhow, I’ve decided to ask the universe for a new knee.  On with the show!   About Zero ZERO — The End of Prostate Cancer is the leading national nonprofit with the mission to end prostate cancer.

Section Two – Career ending injuries - Outro Ok my friends we have burned out to the end of episode 4-460 of the RunRunLive Podcast.  That’s it man, I’m done! Like I said in the intro I’ve got a century ride on the calendar this week with my buddies.  After that, next up is the Bird in Hand half marathon in Pennsylvania.  I know I can’t run, but these folks are the Galloway crew and I plan to just tuck in with some of the run-walkers and have a stroll.  It’s only a half marathon.  Ain’t nuthin.  More concerning is that I’m signed up for the Boston virtual in October.  I guess I’ll just do the same thing and walk-run a 6 or 7 hour Boston.  Look at it this way, it will be an interesting experiment.  Can a Chris with zero training and zero mileage complete a marathon? Place you bets. Then we have to think about the future.  Guess what?  I’m turning a new age group in 2022.  Yeah.  Extra time for me to qualify.  I’ve been thing a lot about starting to believe in myself again and taking on the challenge.  Maybe I can manifest a BQ somewhere on my manifested new knee?  I’m also thinking about running for Zero – the end to prostate cancer. I have a friend in my running club who is in bad shape with the prostate cancer and it’s hitting close to home.  I should do something for him.  Makes me mad that as a society we focus on stupid shit, when we could be finding a cure for cancer.  On a lighter note, I have an Ollie update for you.  I had my evaluation with the new trainer.  This is my third try.  This outfit is called K9 training.  I went up and met the owner, Ramone.  Ramone is like something you’d see in a movie about the army.  Big dude.  Intense.  Military.  Weight lifter. Anyhow he evaluated Ollie and they decide to Ollie was ok for semi-private lessons.  One of the tests was Ramone brought in his dog, a shepherd.  And while I’m holding Ollie n the leash he has his dog walk back and forth and basically do some drills to see if Ollie freaks out.  Ollie did not freak out.  Ollie thought it was great! And Ramone is giving commands to the shepherd in German.  And the shepherd is as efficient off leash as a drill sergeant’s pride and joy.    Bottom line, Not giving up on Ollie.  I think he has met his match.  We had a lot of smoke in the air in New England this week.  Apparently from wild fires in Canada.  You could see the smoke in the air.  It was a haze.  You could smell it.  And, me being me, it reminded me of a phrase writers always use when describing this phenomena – they say “The smoke hung like a pall…” Then I wanted to know what pall meant and did it have something to do with pall bearers at a funeral or maybe Pall Mall cigarettes? You know, smoke, cigarettes?  I could see a connection.  But, alas, Pall Malls were named in 1899 after a posh street in London.  That street, it turns out was named after a game, similar to modern croquet, which was pall mall, literally “Ball Mallet” in Italian.  One of my favorite authors Kurt Vonnegut said of his Pall Malls, "a classy way to commit suicide." And, they were originally pronounced Pal Mals in America before we got radio and were taught the correct way.  But, going back to the fire smoke that hung like a pall, no it has nothing to do with cigarettes, it has to do with death.  The pall is that cloth that they drape over the casket.  And pall bearers are carrying that.  So when our modern writes say the smoke hung like a pall they are invoking the misery and darkness of death.  On that cheery note, remember to manifest something good this week. And I’ll see you out there.   I will.  My Apocalypse show ->     MarathonBQ – How to Qualify for the Boston Marathon in 14 Weeks - Rachel -> Coach Jeff ->

  • Episode 4-459 – Gene Founder of Charity Miles
    The RunRunLive 4.0 Podcast Episode 4-459 – Gene Founder of Charity Miles  (Audio: link) audio:http://www.RunRunLive.com/PodcastEpisodes/epi4459.mp3] Link MarathonBQ – How to Qualify for the Boston Marathon in 14 Weeks - Chris’ other show à Intro: Hello my friends and welcome to episode 4-459 of the RunRunLive Podcast.  I found another way to avoid writing new material! Long story.  I was volunteered to lead a fitness project for my team at work.  I did a survey around what people wanted to know and the top of the list was “How do you find the time to work out?”  So – This question being eminently in the Chris Russell wheelhouse - I created a PowerPoint Presentation, of course I did, and I gave a little talk around that. It ended up being about 20 minutes long – so I stripped the audio off of that and present it here for you.  I did some minor editing to mask the folks I work with.  It’s quite brave of me!  I sound like I’m passionate about this!  As I get older I’m trying to lean in and merge the different aspects of my world.  I got some good feedback that because of our little talk they went out and did some exercise.  So the ends justify the means.  I’m going to drop that recording in here and it is long enough to take up enough space, so I’ll just do that one and the interview today and some other comments to get you a show. Our interview today is with Gene Gurkoff who has an interesting story.  You know I have a history of being involved in startups – so I lead him down that path a little.  But, he’s the guy who started Charity Miles.  He’s still trying to navigate it to a successful outcome.  I’m not an investor or a shareholder in anything right now but the venture capital / private equity space has been crazy this year.  There has been a record number of acquisitions and Initial Private Offerings or IPO’s.  On the other side there has been a record amount of money invested.  The investors are making money and spending money.  It would not surprise me to see Gene’s company in some sort of transaction this year, but that is purely speculation.  My knee is still a problem.  It was feeling stronger last week, so I went out into the trails with Ollie Thursday to see how it felt.  No improvement.  Still a sharp pain when I try to run up hills or when I toe off.  Sort of the ‘climbing the stairs’ weight baring motion.  It’s been 6 months so I’m back in to see the knee guy tomorrow.  Basically the only thing that changed over 6 months was that now I’m in terrible shape and my knee hurts.  I got a reasonable 31 mile bike ride on the Cape Cod rail trail yesterday.  For the most part the cycling is pain free.  Then I went for a soupy slow 10 mile run with Ollie on the rail trail in Groton this morning.  I got it done but it was slow and I didn’t feel great.  That gives me about 20 miles for the week and another 40 or so of biking with a couple of weights work outs thrown in.  I’m signed up for the Bird in Hand ½ marathon and I’ll be able to finish that but I won’t be racing.  We’ll see what the doctor says.  We’ll try to keep our enthusiasm and positivity up and muddle through. Another co-worker of mine is doing a “Live your best Life” course with us.  It’s a lot of manifestation and visualization stuff.  Nothing that I haven’t heard before but it’s always good to remind ourselves to think positive thoughts and be grateful for what we have. That’s what I’m doing with my knee.  Thinking positive thoughts and assuming that eventually I’ll be able to train and race like I want to.  Because our bodies are amazing.  I have a random thought to share with you.  I’m listening to a history of the American Civil War.  And the names are awesome.  Seriously.  How many people do you know named Eustis? Or Gustavus? Or Beauregard?  Come on you young parents, name your kids something spectacular!  Hope you are having a great summer, for those of you on this side of the planet.   Hope my friends in Germany are safe from the flooding.  Hope my friends out West are ok in the heat.  Stay safe everyone.  We need you with us.  On with the show.   About Zero ZERO — The End of Prostate Cancer is the leading national nonprofit with the mission to end prostate cancer.

I have a couple updates before I go.  First, harking back to my comments on finding time to work out.  I’ve been doing a little engineering time study on my workouts.  And I discovered something quite wonderful.  The case study is going to the gym to lift weights.  It’s 6 miles to the gym and 6 miles back and sometimes I’ll ride my bike, but let’s ignore the commute for now and focus on the workout itself.  I’ve been lifting heavy, which basically means heavier weights and fewer reps.  Monday night I did chest and back and Abs.  This consists of 3 sets of 3 exercises for the chest.  So 9 total sets of chest. Then another 3 sets of 3 exercises for the back, so another 9 sets for the back.  Then at the end of each I throw in a set of Abs – so 3 total sets of Abs.  Add it all up and I’m getting 21 heavy sets down in this workout.  How long do you think that takes?  Well I timed it.  Less than 40 minutes.  My god people!  Less than 40 minutes!  Do the math! You could do a simple workout of 1 set per muscle group and be done in 10 minutes.  You can do a total body core set that has 15 or so distinct separate exercises in it in less than 15 minute.  So I don’t want to hear anybody say they don’t have time.  You just have to go in and attack those workouts.  Don’t lollygag around the gym looking mean.  Get that shit done.  You’ll work up a sweat and look like in a month! Second update, I finished up the first season, 20 episodes of my Apocalypse podcast.  Now I’m going to turn it into a book and get started on the second season.  It’s doing well.  I’m over 14,000 downloads and getting some good feedback.  That’s in 6 months, pushing out an episode every two weeks. Again, do the math.  2500 words time 20 episodes is 50,000 words and you’ve got yourself a book.  Don’t wait for permission.  Don’t wait until you’re sure you know what you’re doing.  Don’t wait until you’re sure you’ll be successful.  Don’t wait until you can afford it.  Start! Start and pile up those pebbles one at a time and before you know it you’ll have a mountain.  Or an altar.  Or a sculpture. Start and you will find a way.  Start and the worst possible outcome is that you’ll learn something. I was interviewed by this guy Mike who has a “Wasteland” podcast called “” and the interview came out really well.  I’m quite enjoying this new creative project.  Links in the show notes.  And I’m going to drop Mike’s show with the interview on my feed next week as well.  If you go back to my sermon on how to find time, you’ll remember what I said about finding something that brings you joy.  It’s an important nuance, that we’re talking about ‘joy’, not ‘pleasure’.  Getting high might bring you pleasure but being creative can bring you joy.  I am getting great joy out of creating and producing these characters in this world and that comes through in my interview with Mike.  So, my friends, that’s your homework for this week.  Find what gives you joy and embrace it.  Then get started.  And I’ll see you out there.
