The Run Smarter Podcast

Apr 7, 2020

Shawn Bearden is the host of the very successful 'Science Of Ultra' podcast. He is a full professor of Physiology at the Idaho State University and has a particular interest in running economy, bioenergetics and physiology thresholds. 

Today we step in another direction and talk about the mental side of endurance running. Topics we cover are:

  • What are the key differences between marathons and ultras?
  • Which common traits leads runners to thrive in ultras?
  • How can someone build on their psychological limits?
  • How do we know when to push on & when to back off?

Here are all the links for Science of Ultra:
