Athlete On Fire (the cooldown)

There was a lot going on in the world of endurance.  From the "World's Toughest Boat Race" to one of the most prestigious ultra run's in the world, there was plenty to follow if you weren't out on your own adventure.  Also, three types of intervals for your training.  The Cooldown is produced by the Athlete On Fire show!

There are more things to cover in a weekend in the world of OCR and endurance than could be covered in a 5 hour show, so we just pick a couple that sand out this week.  A participants experience in the Spartan Agoge and a race directors recap of a high Rocky Mountain marathon.  Also, a couple ideas on using weight as a tool to train for more efficient running in the mountains of the events you love.  Thanks for tuning in to The Cooldown, produced by Athlete On Fire.

What is the opposite of play?  It may not be obvious to you but if you are into OCR and endurance and recreation in general we think you'll "get it".  The world sees tragedy again but it isn't only a tragic place.  We actually seek physical suffering in the 21st century so maybe things are a bit better than they seem, overall.  A weird ailment hits the host and are you training for a hilly or mountainous course this summer?  We start a five part series on creatively training for that terrain.  The Cooldown is a part of the Athlete On Fire network.

Summer is coming and we all need a refresher on running and training in the heat.  While we are at it, what are people saying about running high, as in, stoned.  We talk about an article on the topic on the show as well.  The Cooldown is the place for weekly OCR and endurance commentary from Athlete On Fire and mud Run Guide.


The Cooldown is an Athlete On Fire production.

The Cooldown is all about endurance and OCR from the people involved on both sides.  This week we hear from our host about an event in Colorado that bonded some friendly foes on the trail.  The case for unplugging from technology and a congrats to a race director in Arizona for bringing back a unique event.  Also, we give you a session to improve your downhill running.  Inspired by lots of blood on a trail run this weekend. Enjoy The Cooldown, produced by Athlete On Fire.

On this episode of the Cooldown we bring on both a race director of one of the quirkiest running events out there and a woman who is relearning how to walk and run all over again, at a Spartan no less.  Thoughts on the Battlefrog head to head between Hobie Call and Ryan Atkins and why doing "ordinary" really well is pretty darn inspiring.  Enjoy the Cooldown, produced by Athlete On Fire.
