What are Psychosocial Factors, and Why You Need to Know- Greg Lehman
With the running boom that has been going on for a few years now, we have learned more and more about running, and added so many things that we need to pay attention to in order to get the best out of our running, but are we making things too complicated? My guest today has so much research and knowledge behind him, but is encouraging runners to go back to basics, keep things simple and focus on the things that really matter, the things that do not keep changing as new research comes out.
As runners this can be tough for us, as we tend to go overboard when we learn something that might help us, but hopefully this interview today shows you what really matters, and how an outside opinion from a coach could be just what you need to get the most from your running, rather than following the latest and greatest information.
