The BibRave Podcast Ep. 26: Probing the Runner Mind

Happy Friday!

This week’s episode of The BibRave Podcast is here for your listening pleasure! On this episode, Tim and Julia welcome Dr. Justin Ross – a clinical psychologist and co-founder of MindBodyHealth. Dr. Ross specializes in a number of health psychology-related areas, including sports and performance, pain management, eating disorders, stress reduction, bariatrics, and mindfulness-based interventions.

The episode is chock-full of useful info that we hope you find relevant to not just running, but life in general. Check out a few of Dr. Ross’ interesting one-liners along with some links from the show below.

Show Notes:

  • Headspace and Calm
  • We must defeat the “One pace to rule all paces” obsession
  • “Trust is the antidote to anxiety”
  • How to Be Lucky – Power of Positive Thinking
  • “We can’t change what we aren’t aware of”
  • But… [Paraphrased]: “Awareness leads to anxiety if no corrective action occurs”
  • “If you’re not breathing, you’re having a rough day”
  • Tim’s workout of the week – Hip Dips! (though, turns out, they were already named that…)
  • Julia’s workout of the week – Waking up with 5 Downward Dog, 50 Jumping Jacks, 25 pushups, 1 minute of planking
  • Dr. Ross’ Sports Psych workout of the week – 3 x “I am” statements; in the morning, during your run (ponder how you’ll deal with adversity on race day) and at the end of the day (connect to gratitude with three things you’re thankful for).
  • Dr. Ross: TwitterWebsite, and Facebook
