Today on the Doc On The Run podcast we’re talking about how self-confidence and self-love beat finish times, every time with Jill Angie from The Not Your Average Runner Podcast.
One of my favorite podcasts is called The Not Your Average Runner Podcast.
I recently sat down with Jill Angie, who hosts that show.
When you have an injury, and you have been training hard, it is very easy to beat yourself up. Jill is the best person to explain how we can take an injury and reframe it so we don’t beat ourselves up when we are injured.
Here are some of the question I got to ask Jill during the interview:
What I love about your show is the way you help us all realize we are strong, worthy and that running is worthwhile at any pace. What can you tell is about what you have learned from getting runners to really consider self-love as runners?
One of the best things about running is it is so easy to do. One of the worst things about running is that it is so easy to compare ourselves to others. What advice do you have to new runners who have a hard time telling themselves they are “real runners?”
Let’s talk about self-love in the injured runner. When you have an injury, and you have been training hard, it is very easy to beat ourselves up. Self-criticism heals no wounds. How do you think we can take an injury and reframe it so we don’t beat ourselves up when we are injured?
What advice do you give to new runners (or a runner returning from injury) about the rate at which they increase mileage so they can stay healthy and keep running?
Why do you think so many runners get injured, and what do you think is the most helpful way to avoid running injuries from overtraining?
How does self-confidence grow in runners?
Great quotes from Jill during this episode:
“The belief that you’re a runner has to come from within.”
“You have to work on that belief from within the whole time.”
“Run the mile you’re in.”
“Nothing has gone wrong when you got an injury. It’s just part of the process.”
