#104 - Tina Muir on walking your talk

A Runner’s Life

In episode 104 I speak with Tina Muir who is the founder, host and CEO of Running For Real. Tina is a mother of two and former international runner for Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The Running For Real Podcast is a collective of conversations about running, the climate emergency, and social justice. This podcast has amassed over 4.5 million downloads, and is one of the most recognised running podcasts. I spoke with Tina on episode 248 of the  The Running For Real Podcast. Tina also hosts a second, highly rated podcast with Knox Robinson called Running Realized, noted as "The 'Invisibilia' of running" by Women's Running. In this conversation we spoke about: Navigating social media, how to create content that means more to what human beings need, even if it loses some of the audience. Looking at what does authenticity look like. Exploring how to let go of external validation. Transitioning after competing at an elite level back to running. Managing the competitive side and keeping the joy in the process. Lessons she has learned from her time working in media and podcasting. Plus much more… You can follow her on Instagram @tinamuir88 ————————————————————— This episode is supported by Tracksmith, a brand which actively represents and supports the development of a runner’s life in the running community.

Running for Real Host Tina Muir on Creating Change Through Conversations (Ep 90)

Go Be More Podcast

“I genuinely believe that we should be learning our entire life. And there's a part of me that feels excited for when I'm 78 years old, and all the things I will have learned.”Difficult conversations can very often lead into areas of personal growth.Lifelong runner Tina Muir doesn’t shy away from these discussions as she builds her two successful running podcasts, Running for Real and Running Realized, and continues to challenge fixed mindsets.Timestamped Show Notes:(2:50) Growing up in a classically English town…(6:03) The difference between club sports and school sports…(8:13) “When I was coming up to my final year of college, people kept saying, ‘Are you going to go pro?’ And I was like, ‘What does that even mean?’” (11:12) A lifestyle component to pursuing sports…(14:24) “I can absolutely see why she said that I wasn't committed. I was just plodding along, not really trying. But I did manage to pull it together for the final few races. And once I got through that part, it was not a question—running was a part of me.”(16:52) When commitment goes too far…(19:00) And then there’s those who don’t commit…(20:40) Do you have a fixed mindset or growth mindset?(23:08) The mission of Go Be More…(25:21) “To ignore your dreams, in my opinion, is really to ignore the opportunity to fully understand who you are before it's all said and done.”—Jon(26:50) Does the influence of others impact your mindset?(30:04) A surprising decision…(33:50) “Once I decided I'm done then I felt a huge relief... but I just couldn't get myself to say it. And even when I stopped, I think that was such a dramatic, emotional moment that I didn't know it was for sure. But once I said it in a calm, rational manner, after thinking about it for a few days, then it felt like a huge relief.”(34:29) A couple of new distractions… (37:04) How much did you evolve as a podcaster?(39:40) Conversations that grew into a different platform…(41:21) Running For Real and Running Realized explained…(44:36) What does Go Be More mean to you...“Taking yourself beyond your comfort zone and stepping out to a place that feels like it's helping you to grow and evolve. And I genuinely believe that we should be learning our entire life. And there's a part of me that feels excited for when I'm 78 years old, all the things I will have learned. I'd say it's just what we've been talking about today. Like stretching yourself and taking that deep breath and then doing it anyway, whatever scares you, take a deep breath and go for it.”If you liked this episode, check out our interviews with Kara Goucher and Audra Bryant.Recorded April 30, 2021.References:Running for Real - websiteRunning Realized - websiteGuest:Tina Muir - website | Instagram | TwitterHosts:Bryan Green - bryan@gobemore.co, maketheleapbook.comJon Rankin - @chasejonrankin, Go Be MoreLinks:Go Be More Podcast - Episodes | Instagram | FacebookGo Be More websiteGo Be More YouTube ChannelProduction and EditingCreatives Collective MarketingImage Credit: Sandy Gutierrez

Jay Dicharry and Tina Muir: Strength for Runners 2017/02/06 Encore Presentation

Run to the Top Podcast | The Ultimate Guide to Running

Coach Tina interviews Jay Dicharry in 2017.  Jay is a renowned expert in biomechanics and physical therapy and is also the author of Anatomy for Runners. In this episode, he challenges us to reevaluate parts of our accepted, conventional training and running wisdom.  He does a great job of deconstructing clinically complex concepts into easily understandable ideas and examples. He breaks down things like Strength Training versus Power Training and the differences between joint limitation or blockage, shortened tissues, stiffness / sticky tissues, and dynamic mobility.  Our conversation covered a lot of ground and included many additional resources as noted by the links below. This may very well be an episode that you will want to listen to multiple times to explore these and evaluate what changes you may want to integrate into your own personal program. Here are some of the topics we’ll discuss today:  How biomechanic training can help Pre-Hab or prevent injuries. Biomechanics fact vs. fiction and the ongoing critical evaluation of prior assumptions. How to leverage strength training to improve your running while reducing your volume. How to evaluate a potential strength coach or options if you don’t have access to one. Risk / Reward balance of using different types of shoes for training / racing. Jay’s Mobility / soft-tissue work philosophy. The difference between ‘stretching’ and ‘dynamic mobility’ and which you should do before a run. Quotes by Jay: “There’s still the folks out there saying ‘Running is going to kill you and you need to stop’.” “I don’t like being the person paving the way; I like being the person helping people.” “ ‘What’s the ONE thing to do?” and the reality is that life isn’t that simple, right? If it was, then nobody would have problems.” “There is very good research out there to show that running does NOT make you strong. Running efficiency DOES improve when you improve the way that you carry yourself.” “At the end of the day, the runners who are serious find a way to get in the weight room. The runners I work with, the people I’ve introduced to this, I don’t know any of them who have STOPPED doing this at all even from a novice up to an elite level.” “The goal is to build a running-specific plan to RUN better, not just to lift more weight in the gym.” “If it’s not improving running economy and making your body more robust in terms of injury reduction, then you shouldn’t be doing it.” “If you’re a soccer player and you’re more accurate in shooting goal with your right foot, that’s fine, right? But, when you run both legs have to show up.” “I’m not looking to train a muscle; I’m looking to train a movement.” Take a Listen on Your Next Run Want more awesome interviews and advice?
