Robin says @ 00:22:11
He frequently gets side-stitches and abdominal cramps when he is running and is wondering what could be causing them and how he can avoid them. He also would like to know how to develop mental strength – the ability to push through when things get tough.
Adam says @ 00:34:59
He finds that when he is doing a lactate session, of 10k or more, he starts off tough through the middle of the run but then he starts to get negative thoughts and question himself before coming out the other side and finish off the session really well. He's looking for advice about the middle section and how to become mentally tougher and take out the negative thoughts.
Craig says @ 00:45:33
Wonders if you have any tips for healing road rash, skin abrasions and/or cuts.
Dave says @ 00:50:44
Is currently training for a marathon but will then start training for an Ironman. He is planning to use your 9 month training protocol but he's noticed that you recommend a lot of meat and he is vegan. Is there scope for vegans in there? He can't be the first to ask (especially after your appearance on Rich Roll's podcast).
Chris says @ 01:07:45
He had his gallbladder removed about 10 years ago (he is 47 years old now) and is wondering if there are any tweaks or considerations he needs to make in his diet or any supplements he should be taking due to his lack of gallbladder. He works out about 5 days a week and does struggle to keep his weight down.
Thomas says @ 01:14:00
He's looking for advice on how to control motion sickness. It happens in the car when someone else is driving but the biggest problem is when he swims. Looking for advice or pointers on how to get over motion sickness in water. He can swim fine but he gets a “really swelly head” and then throws-up. In the ocean but also in the pool.
