In this episode, I start with a few current event topics including results from the NYC Half Marathon and an update on the Olympic qualifying process from USATF (via www.letsrun.com).
Then at 21 minutes in, I turn to an interview with Canadian elite athlete (and 2:32 marathoner) Sasha Gollish. She was in Austin for training to escape the cold winter of Toronto, so I got to join her for a few runs as well as get her in the podcast studio. After she listened to episode #110 (with Christie Aschwanden) and read the book Good to Go (on the science of recovery), Sasha invited me out for our first float pod experiences.
We talk all about it to start the interview and then cover a range of topics from her approach to recovery to coaching to lessons from her engineering dissertation for running. Plus, we talk about her Oiselle partnership and everything they do to build community in our sport.
