In this episode, we bring back elite runner and 2:32 marathoner Sasha Gollish (previously on episodes 118 and 131) to discuss her recent injuries (ankle and foot). She talks about staying focused and sane through injury while also maintaining fitness and preparing for a comeback.
We discuss her cross training methods from the bike to the pool to the elliptical, including examples of workouts she did to provide intensity while staying off of her foot.
Then, we talk how she is managing her return from injury to try to put herself in a good position for the NYC Marathon on November 3rd.
Interestingly, her approach to her return is more gradual and deliberate than you might expect, and I believe there are many lessons to be learned from Sasha's methods for those facing an injury.
Also, here is a link to Sasha's blog about her workouts while injured and coming back from injury:
