So THIS Is Fitness | Health, Fitness, Running & Weight Loss

Health, fitness, running, weight loss... it doesn't have to be hard! Take it from a guy who's been there and "gets it" - your host, Darrell McTague. Having lost 130 lbs and finished ULTRAmarathons, he's learned it all the hard way so you don't have to.

On the eve of a great battle, there is much to do.

There are plans to be finalized, preparations to be made. Warriors have to gear up and mentally prepare for what they're about to do. When we're about to take on a new phase of our journey... well... we're no different. Instead of swords and shields, we're donning running shoes and a water bottle, or cross-trainers and a sweat towel. And yes, we ARE about to do battle... just in a different way. It's wholly appropriate to hunker down and view it as such in order to get your head right for what's to come.

Yes, there's that mental part, too.

Just as it's important for the warrior to mentally prepare for the rigors of battle, and just as he's got no choice but to envision total victory... so too must you. When we're about to take on a new phase in our fitness journey, we HAVE to believe it's going to be successful. We MUST have confidence in our ability to succeed! And we simply CANNOT doubt ourselves. It's that simple. And that's the topic of discussion today, kids - how to handle yourself on the eve of battle. However hyperbolic that might sound.

What's in this episode:

  • Interesting happenings at the gym
  • Life is actually pretty good right now
  • What to do when you're about to embark on a major journey
    • including a conversation with Katrina White all about the upcoming Pineland Farms 50 Mile Ultramarathon
