19. Running and Climbing Pt 2
This episode is a follow-up from last week's episode with Chelsea Murn. On this solo podcast, I dive into your questions around running and climbing, including how to schedule both in one week, how to maintain one while focusing on the other and my thoughts on rest day activities. I mainly talk about running and climbing, but these concepts and advice can apply to any two sports that you're trying to plan into your training weeks and cycles.

Bonus: Is it okay for beginner runners to run on trails from the start?
This episode is inspired by my newest program READY TO RUN and some questions that my friend Wendy had while reviewing the content! Wendy was wondering if it's okay for newer runners to run on trails from the start, if trails are considered more advanced, when I would recommend running on trail vs road, how to know if a trail is technical, and the difference between surfaces for running.
