Health Episode #12: Michael Mark on Overcoming His Season Ending Injury

By | Podcast | No Comments

Back in episode #147 Alix and I discussed how you can train through an injury by focusing on what you CAN do vs. what you can’t do.  In this episode our guest, and one of the top Elite Masters OCR athletes on the planet Michael Mark talks about how he is overcoming a devastating, season ending achilles tendon rupture last month during a warm-up run before the TMX World Championship. Michael was arguably in the best shape of his life when his season ended in a split second.

We talk about the injury, what could have lead to the rupture, and how Michael uses his positive mindset to make a 180 degree shift in focus and continue moving forward during bad days, sad days, angry days and happy days. This show will hopefully give you a great perspective on life and how you can always stay focused on becoming the best version of yourself possible.

The Health Episodes #11: How to take Ownership of Your Performance, Nutrition, & Life

By | Podcast | No Comments

Take Ownership of your training, nutrition, & life.  In this episode Alix and Mo help you understand how you can stop letting outside forces/people/situations dictate your day/life.

  • Do you go through workouts with your trainer, buddy, or alone blind?
  • Do you just eat food without paying attention or putting in effort to fuel properly?
  • Is everything someone else’s fault, do you let other people, situations dictate your attitude daily?

Ownership of your training:

  • learn a new movement or learn understand the movements that you are doing
    • whats the “why” behind the session/particular exercise
    • ask your coach trainer to help you learn
    • start with ONE movement
  • Taking ownership in this realm can give you confidence to take on other tasks you may have been intimidated by

 Ownership of your nutrition:

  • you don’t need to become a food scientist
  • learn the health benefits of one food each day or each week, then incorporate into your nutrition
  • Learn how the foods/supplements you eat affect your body, performance, recovery, etc
  • Learn how to prepare a meal for yourself
  • Learn how to order healthy at a restaurant and/or stick to healthier options when eating for business
  • ENJOY yourself when eating out and own it!

Ownership of your life:

  • Do you wake up and watch the news or check social media and realize how that dictates your attitude, response/reaction to others for the day?
  • Do you allow situations at work or home “put you in a mood” for the day?
  • Wake up each morning and start by owning the first 10-15 minutes 
    • box breathe, meditate, smile
    • repeat this mantra “today I take ownership of my thoughts and emotions. Today I take ownership of my body and food”
  • If you make a mistake OWN IT, don’t dwell on it, learn from it and make it a positive 
    • “I realize I could have done xxx better”  or  “In looking back I see where I could have done/said xxx for a better outcome/response/etc”
  • At the end of each day write in a journal what you took ownership of that day.  Whether its one thing or 10 things, write it down.  Review it the next morning after breathing, meditation, and while saying your mantra to start your day/mind off on the right track  Review your wins.. 
  • At the end of each week/month/year you can go back and look at all of your ownership WINS and see how you have progressed
