When I posted that I was swimming in cold water on Social Media, I immediately started getting questions about why I would do this. Was it for longevity? To defeat chronic inflammation?

Since this is my first digest of 2022 (Happy New Year!!) I feel like I need to address all of you who have made resolutions to “get fit” this year. And my biggest piece of advice for you is this:

—not where you want to be or where you were –
but honestly and sincerely where you are right now in your fitness journey.

What does being “durable” mean to you?
My guest on this episode, Tim “Lucho” Waggoner, has a goal of being durable. Physically and mentally. And I love that notion. It takes so many of the loaded ideas we have about our bodies out of the equation.
And being durable feels so much more meaningful than simply being thin or muscular but it can include it.
Tim raced as a professional triathlete before switching his focus to ultra races. He switched once again to sprint distance races before really changing his focus to work on becoming as durable as possible. We get into what that means and how you can achieve it, in this episode.Continue reading “Getting Durable with Tim Waggoner (Endurance Planet)”
