Can you tell what the show is about this week?
Prompted by a listener question, the guys delve into the world of stretching and get into the different types, if they really dp prevent injury, and can it increase performance.
This is a touchy topic with people, John and Rob come at the subject from both a personal view AND from a science-based view.

Rob goes solo on a longer sprint episode, recapping the last few shows and giving some clarity to what he was thinking in Episode 135 ("Identity Crisis"). He then ties it to some goals he "inadvertently" met and how he may need to redefine them, as the victories were not what he thought they would be.

Rob is away on a fishing trip with his family in the wilds of Canada, so Karen Clarke sits in with John to discuss the joys of Ultrarunning. Karen has been at it a few years and John is still relatively new, so with questions being raised by listeners they look at what exactly an Ultramarathon is, how to get started, how to train for one, and what to expect when you are out there in the wilderness with just a Gamin and Camelback to get you home.

As it does to most of us at some point, Rob is having a bit of an identity crisis this year. As lives change, training changes, due to demands on time by work, life, family, so how do you change with it and still maintain the identity you have clung to for so many years? Sometimes it's just a matter of letting things go and realizing that you are not a Triathlete, or a Runner, or anything of the sort; you are an Endurance Athlete at your heart.

Every coach has a guiding set of principles and beliefs that they have developed through training, both their own and the "book learnin'" received as part of the certification process. But when what is taught in a class clashes with what experience has taught, what do you do?

John has some thoughts on running and training in the morning vs. at night and why we cling to old thiking when it comes to many of our training habits.
