In this show, we welcome back Dr. Phil Maffetone. Many listeners to the podcast are already familiar with his work. He is a recognized researcher, coach and clinician in the area of food and nutrition, exercise, sports medicine and biofeedback. He is also the author of more than 20 books, including the first on heart rate monitor training in the early 1980’s. 

We discuss changes, challenges and uncertainty for most runners in 2020, 2021 and beyond. We also dive into people who have made a big impact on our lives and development, among other things:

  • the new MAF foundations course by Dr Maffetone and team
  • mindful running and flow state.
  • setting PR's in your 40's and beyond.
  • working from a strong aerobic foundation.
  • MAF training, considering age and health.
  • flexibility, mobility and stretching.
  • Dr. Phil Maffetone's books, writing, collaborations and available resources.
