SHOW NOTES:

intro/bios
What was your goal in writing this book?
How was the writing process / working as a team? you guys obviously have most of your lives overlapping, so do we: how do you handle it? Any tips?
What’s the one thing most athletes need to work on the most? Most consistent issues faced?
“Setting Goals is Not Your Problem” — we hear SO much about goal-setting as athletes, so I really loved this. Can you explain it a bit, and explain what an athlete can do instead?
Question from Dean  
Basically, anything that can be expanded on with respect to an athlete that has plateaued and is lacking the mental motivation to be active would be helpful.
I’ve been mountain biking for 18 seasons, …. . But I am pretty bored. And because of that boredom, my fitness has done a backslide, so I’m even more discouraged.
I know goal setting will probably be a part of this, as will setting new habits. Stacking maybe plays a role, but I feel like I am missing some key piece to make these things happen. Like, I know strategies that should work, and have options, but am not setting intentions and following through. 

I loved the part about Identifying as an athlete—any quick tips for listeners about how to feel more legit?
Simon, you and I talked about failure a couple months ago, and I want to dive back into that. Failing in a goal race, or feeling like you failed, can throw you into a HUGE tail spin—can you go into a bit about how to get out of that feeling?
The comparison trap is HUGE for me. Can you talk about a couple strategies you recommend to get out of it? And Lesley, is this something you still deal with even as a pro at the highest level?

SHOW NOTES:

0) does breaking up a workout like say 100 crunches over an entire day have fewer benefits 1/2 than say doing them in a single setting?
    => Pavel of Russian Kettlebell training is at  http://www.strongfirst.com
1) Are there any online subscription services for functional strength training? I’m thinking something that works like JasYoga or YogaGlo. From a laptop $10-20/month. Good offseason topic (also selfish request for research) since I haven’t found one for endurance athletes.
2) Smart Trainer and riding a bike indoors
can’t believe how unfit I am after using a smart trainer compared to outside. what’s wrong with me?
     – Mentioned ZWIFT, KICKR TRAINER   , Cyclops FLUID Trainer
3) Transition to Running Safely
Hey Molly, I think Peter and you have covered the transition from cyclist to the runner. I’m planning on doing more running this offseason. I’m a competitive mountain and cyclocross racer and I’m wondering the best practices to take. I was a National level Track runner many years ago and would like to run again. Ideally with minimal pain and suffering. Thanks and keep up the great podcasting!

4) What to do in the off-season?
  -> offseason things you can do above and beyond maintenance?

SHOW NOTES:

1) How do you explain what you do and who you are to new clients or when speaking?
running – 
gymnastics – tramp backyard, cheerleading, video- gregrowetrampoline , DOVICA, DAvid morris ski (Back layout, backtuck), Plan-Zero
    –> doing a backflip (knew how to do it), getting injured straining abs/shouders, break into components (way more abs)-> hollow-rocks, V-Snaps,    
“if you find a motion you can do and evoke pain”
PAIN
– To start off could you lay out Pain and Nociception for us?
   – Nociception – irritibility detector
   = pain response to stimulus
  = persistant pain – can lead to more pain
  – We call this the Bio – Psycho – Social model of pain.  Meaning all areas of your life can influence pain.
 – like fatigue – motivation less then effort level
 – EVEN if have tissue injury the treatment is the same
  *few things we rest like stress structure,
– COping with avoidance – not necessarily
– don’t push too deep – cope with endurance
BIGGER CUP – pain when cup overflow – all factors go in (sleep, tendinopathy, trianing, anxiety)
    -> exercise helps tolerance, could decrease one or some to redce overflow
Back pain in Performance – Normalize (its ok), visualize, prepare body (small elements)
“Not weird to have back pain when stresing your back a ton”
– make everything else
  ->tim gabbot chronic vs. acute
   -> not just workload – mechanical loads, not the day for PR (bad sleep, stress)
 Top books to be Greg Lehman 
    – book that he recalls as bringing psycho-social aspects to his awareness =>  John Sarno – back pain revolution, 
     – Challenge Bias with the books that you choose.
