How The Endurance Training Ruins Your Health And What To Do About This?

If you are, like me, into the Ironman triathlons and other extreme endurance feasts, you have a problem.Even if you don't give the monkeys about your PBs, sooner or later you will become competitive, and you will want to go faster, longer and further. 

This is our human nature, we always try to be the best version of ourselves. And there is nothing wrong with this.

The problem is that very quickly you will realise that the fastest way to improve your endurance is to increase the amount of the training hours.
So you will swim more, cycle longer and run further.
Then your body will adapt, you will see the results and then you will crank up the volume again. Welcome to the endurance rabbit hole.
In the mist of the countless turbo sessions, competitions, long weekend rides, races, tri camps, track meets and the masters swimming sessions it is easy to forget that we are not professional athletes. This is not our job, and we will no go hungry if we don't win the next race.I bet that you …

Tri #6 Ciara Webb

My name is Ciara Webb, I’m 35, and I’ve been a member of Edinburgh Triathletes for four years (I think). I’m really good at making mittens and running away from difficult situations, and pretty awful at cooking and getting out of bed in the mornings (I used to love the Friday morning swim session but the older I get the sleepier I am!). Outside of triathlon (yes, there is a time in my week when I’m not at a training session!) I organise Portobello parkrun, play in an orchestra, and Irish dance.

Tri #5 Jennifer Bedford

Jennifer Bedford is Edinburgh based triathlete. She has won this year Loch Gu Loch SwimRun Race and she is a finisher of Celtman Extreme Scottish Triathlon. 
''I like the challenge and doing something and getting to the end off it. Start small and you just progress. And I would never have thought I would be able to do long distance triathlon, never mind the extreme one!''

Olympic Medal Without Doping?

According to Dr. Grigory Rodchenkov, you cannot win the Olympic medal without doping.
But when you ask the athlete, he will always say that he is clean.
Of course, he will. There is too much money involved, and the whole country's honor is at stake.

Then I watch an amazing body transformation on Instagram, from the skinny to Hulk-like looking monster, only in 3 months.
And the guy will be very convincing that he is clean too, and that he built his muscles on the Broccoli and carrots alone.
I can learn his secret for only £99.

Watch Icarus documentary on Netflix or listen to Rogan's last podcast with Bryan Fogel to learn more about state-sponsored doping and geopolitics of sport.
