Most people don’t agree on a lot of things in this world. But if you’re a runner or endurance athlete we can all agree that Injuries suck.Whether it’s chronic (aka the pain has slowly been around and you’ve been ignoring it and keep training)Or... acute (aka you twisting your ankle or falling down hard).

Back when I ran track in college, I had a decent amount of raw genetic talent to run faster. But as I graduated to endurance running, my inefficient overstriding led to some serious knee injuries. Imagine how fast I could have been if I actually focused on my form. In the 80s it was mostly thought good running form was a natural talent and not a skill to be worked at and acquired. If you compare my run form from now to 20 years ago it's a world of difference.Learn the 7 best tips to run your fastest and avoid injuries.What You’ll learn7 Tips for Good Running Form: Posture,Foot plant, Stride length, Arm swing, Cadence, Core, PerfectionEpisode Question - Who has the best run form Mo Farah or Kipchogee?Episode QuotesMake sure your foot land behind the knee. If not it's a hip operation waiting to happenIf your form works you don't need to change it. If you're getting injured or want to run efficient, then look at the better formHitting the ground isn't what we want - We want to be up in the air for as much as possibleAnyone that overstrides and lands with the foot in front of the knee, is braking and accelerating and this is a very inefficient way of running.Episode LinksUse Running Form Drills & Plyometrics to become an injury-free monster - https://dlakecreates.com/run-form-drills-plyometrics-injury-free-monster/4 Ways to master your running form - https://www.runnersworld.com/training/a20864133/4-ways-to-master-your-running-form/What is perfect running form (Global Triathlon Network) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brFHyOtTwH4Instagram Post on Run Form - https://www.instagram.com/p/CQc8P9vjsR9/Podcast Concept, Production and Marketing BY POD PASTEEpisode LinksUse Running Form Drills & Plyometrics to become an injury free monster - https://dlakecreates.com/run-form-drills-plyometrics-injury-free-monster/4 Ways to master your running form - https://www.runnersworld.com/training/a20864133/4-ways-to-master-your-running-form/Instagram Post on Run Form - https://www.instagram.com/p/CQc8P9vjsR9/SponsorsGet three hard-to-find niche things monthly (ish) that will help you get healthy, stay fit and use data to create habits that last a lifetime!

As runners and endurance athletes (Hey triathletes and cyclists!), we all love knowing what you should do!But sometimes it’s nice to look at the inverse. Inverse just means the opposite. In the context of running and training, knowing what IS NOT good for you is just as effective as knowing what is.The point of this episode is not to embarrass anyone, but to get you to think more about what you are doing by again, looking at the opposite of what good is. This is what Mike Trees calls “training smarter”The top 10 things runners should never do!Ignore pain: if it hurts stopSkip your warm-up/cool downNever stretchExpect a Personal best/personal record at every raceFollow a training plan to the letter..... you must be flexible as we all have good days and bad daysStart off a race too fast.

Too many runners train in ‘the grey zone’, too fast for an easy run but too slow for a hard run. Nose breathing is a natural way to ensure your easy runs are easy, because you can not supply enough oxygen to the muscles if you run too fast.A 2017 study published in the International Journal of Exercise Science showed breathing through your nose makes your heart rate higher than breathing through your mouth, at the same pace.Yes, we go deep on this!What You Will LearnHow our current training is goingThe concept around how training actually makes you weakerHow, why and when breathing through your mouth vs your nose works best and for what type of runnerThe dangers of nose breathingThe great debate… caffeine or not before a workout?And a few more cool things to help you perform better in training, racing and life!Notable Quotables"Training makes you weaker. Rest Makes you stronger.""Nose breathing is great because it helps you check that you aren't running too fast.""If you breath through your mouth, on hot dry days you will just have to accept that your mouth will be dry""You have to make a choice - You can't say you want to breath through your nose and go quicker.

27 years between races!! That's how long it took Mike Trees between his first Ironman Triathlon to his 2nd.In this quick part 2 of 2 episode in following his Ironman journey we talk to him about the challenges before the race, what actually happened in the race, and what's up next for him.Spoiler - he did it! He got first in his age group and 92nd overall with a time of 10 hours 31 minutes.He did a 1 hour 13 min swim in very cold water (17 degrees celsius - and about 67 degrees farenheit)Blazing - 5hour 24 min bikeAnd then somehow had enough in him after that to run a 3 hour 44 minute marathon with a very fast last 5k kick (he heard the 2nd place guy was catching up to him!)It was a super challenging and cold day (Florida had the coldest weather they've ever had in over 100 years!)Heads up - Mike was on a 6 hour drive back to the airport with pro triathlete Colin Norris and was able to jump on a zoom call with me between glitchy data connections.
