Runners Round Table Podcast: Stretching and Other Running Topics!

Check out the Runners Round Table podcast below recorded live on 11/18/09 with runners from the US, England, and Canada. RunnerDude was greatly honored to be invited to co-host the podcast along with Toni, host of her blog, drusy.blogspot.com. and Melisa, host of her blog, irishblue.blogspot.com. We talked with the featured guest, Yuri Elkaim - athlete, author and Fitness/Wellness Expert. A former professional Soccer player, Yuri is the founder and owner of Total Wellness Consulting, hosts a blog Fitter U Fitness, and has written Eating for Energy (www.eatingforEnergy.ca) and Nutrition for Runners (www.myTreadmillTrainer.com) as well as articles in Beyond Fitness magazine, Impact magazine, and Fitness Business Canada magazine.

The pod cast is about 50 minutes and well worth the listen. Yuri and the group discussed the difference between dynamic stretching and static stretching and the importance of stretching for injury prevention. Yuri discussed his approach of incorporating more raw fruits and vegetables into your diet and consuming foods in their "unprocessed" state and how doing this improves your training and recovery time. The group also briefly discussed interval training and how it can benefit all runners' training.

I did treadmill trainer a couple of years ago when I first started running. I loved Yuri! I will have to give this one a try. Thanks!

While it sometimes ends up at the bottom of the stack, I do enjoy the Runner's Roundtable podcast. I really liked this one. It seems like there is a lot of back and forth on stretching.

Hi Adam! Thanks! I really enjoy doing those. They asked me to host one sometime. Might be fun! Need to think of a good topic.
