#139: Aligning Behavior with Stated Goals


Hosts Brad Kearns and Dr. Linsday Taylor get deep into the psyche of the endurance athlete and address some of the common challenges. For happiness and well-being, it’s critical to behave in a manner congruent with your stated goals. When you are overtraining and dragging you and your ego thru ill-advised workouts, you depart from high minded ideals and are succumbing to rat race mentality where, as bestselling author Brené Brown says, “fatigue is a badge of honor in modern culture, and self-worth is determined by productivity”. Or as frequent podcast guest Andrew MacNaughton comments, “Endurance athletes are most content when they train themselves to exhaustion.” Hmm, ring a bell? There is a better way!
