Podcast, Episode 6!

Episode 6 of the Most Pleasant Exhaustion podcast is out! Give it a listen!

In this installment--part two in our series on fatigue--we discuss long-term, systemic fatigue (aka "overtraining").

Do you believe in "go hard or go home?" Do you plan to "rest when you're dead?" If so, you may actually be lowering your performance. Tune in to hear what research says about overtraining.  (Hint: it's real, and it can wreck your race, your season, or even your career.)
