I’ve been a runner for as long as I can remember. And there’s always been a peaceful element to that sacred loneliness of the long distance runner. In the last three decades I’ve run tens of thousands of miles while training for everything from the zippy 1500m up to slow trudgery of the 100 miles. Regardless of the event, training is geared towards developing both the mental and physical strength to overcome the challenges of endurance events. Here we tackle the physical side, looking at how humans and animals cope with stresses like heat exhaustion, lactic acid build up, water loss, salt buildup, and more. Welcome to the Single Acorn Podcast.
