With a recent heart health scare in a fit member of our training groups, we wanted to do this episode to discuss regular health maintenance for athletes. In it, we talk with a doctor from BaylorScott &White Health system in Austin, discussing what should you be doing annually to establish and maintain regular care with a primary care provider. Just because you can run for an hour or three hours doesn't mean you are bulletproof. Find a primary care provider and get checked. Plus, we talk about other things like nutrition, sleep, and supplements.
By way of intro, we pay our respects to Sir Roger Bannister and then recap World Indoors, discussing who won the latest prediction contest between us.
Here are links referenced in the intro:
