Rob Steger is an ultra runner, the author of Training for ultra and the host of the Training for ultra podcast.
We start the conversation with Rob's journey into running, filmmaking and podcasting before turning our attention to his ultra marathon training philosophy. Rob describes the benefits of developing a 'flow state' when running along with his opinions on training mileage.
Further into the conversation, Rob uncovers tips to ramp up your weekly mileage, strategies to increase your mental resiliency & insights he has learnt to help runners of any distance.
Lastly, I ask Rob about any misconceptions or common mistakes he sees in the ultra community. This really is an episode all runners can benefit from as we dive into the training, mindset and race strategy domain.
