    Running injuries are something nearly every runner has to deal with at some point. The good news is you can reduce your risk and likelihood of recurrence of an injury with knowledge and acceptance at the first sign of an injury.

    Bruce Wilk P.T., O.C.S. is a lifelong runner, a Miami based physical therapist for more than 32 years, a running coach and a triathlete. He has devoted his career to one question – why do runners get injured and how can it be prevented?

    In doing so, he’s developed The Running Injury Recovery Program and The Running Injury Recovery Program Workbook which is the first self-managed step by step injury recovery program designed specifically for runners using the same techniques he uses everyday in his own practice to successfully return injured runners to lifelong running.

    In addition to his work helping runners stay on the roads he is the owner of Miami based specialty running store The Runners High where they evaluate the shoes that are to be sold in store for defects, proper form and function before they hit the shelves.

    In this episode Bruce and I have a detailed discussion including:

    The actual definition of a running injury vs. soreness from running

    The 5 stages of running injuries along with red flag warnings for each

    4 phases to recovering from injury and preventing future recurrence

    Specific risk factors that make you more prone to injury – and how to progress out of that category

    How minimalist and barefoot running shoes can increase your risk of injury

    How not running enough can increase your risk of injury

    One simple action to take to reduce your injury risk

    How to select shoes and the importance of recognizing a defective shoe new out of the box

    Pitfalls runners make when selecting shoes

    We also address the most common and specific questions runners have when it comes to injuries:

    What you should do if you believe you have a running injury

    Breaking the injury onset, time off and return to running with injury recurrence cycle

    Thoughts on bands, KT tape, foam rollers and other implents in treating running injuries

    The proper and improper use of medication with managing pain

    What to do if an injury strikes just before a key race

    How effective is stretching in directly preventing running injury

    When can you likely self-manage recovery vs. when you should seek professional help

    He also shares a warning if you are actively training with a cortisone injection.

  3. LCD Soundsystem - Christmas Will Break Your Heart

    so, there’s been this depressing christmas song i’d been singing to myself for the past 8 years, and every year i wouldn’t remember that i wanted to make it until december, which is just too late to actually record and release a christmas song… but this year, al doyle had a short break between hot chip tours where he could be in nyc, and pat and nancy were home, and tyler agreed to fly out from berlin for a few days, so we all recorded this together, reserved a pressing plant slot, and our friend bob weston was available to master it quickly—so that means, less than 2 weeks after we recorded it, there is actually a christmas 7", which feels like something that could only have happened a very, very long time ago. anyway, for the holidays we give you the previous, very long run-on sentence, and this song: “christmas will break your heart”, which is another one of those songs which had about 75 lines of lyrics, though we’ve knocked down to 8 to keep the suicide rate in check. have fun! http://www.lcdsoundsystem.com

  5. How the illusion of control leads you to perpetually wait for your life to begin / Boing Boing

    Over the years, when most patients have first met psychiatrist Michael I. Bennett, they have tended to believe they would soon to get to know a trusted confidant who would sit quietly, listen intently, and eventually deliver something he says is scientifically impossible: a way to make all their bad feelings go away.

    “I’d say, ‘Well, what’s your goal with this problem?’ explains Bennett. “And they would say, ‘Of course, it’s to feel better. It’s to improve it. It’s to solve it,’ and I’d be essentially saying, ‘Fuck that! That’s not going to happen.'”

    In the show, you’ll hear Michael elaborate on why that is. In this episode, our guests are Harvard-trained psychiatrist Michael I. Bennett and his comedy writer daughter Sarah Bennett whose new book, Fuck Feelings, makes the case for accepting the illusion of control as a guiding principle for living a better life.

    Time and again, study after study, psychologists have found that in situations in which the outcomes are clearly, undoubtably random or otherwise outside the realm of control, people tend to latch onto any shred of evidence that could be interpreted otherwise. It’s a habit that can lead to self-loathing, ineffectual strategies for change, and lives filled with missed opportunities and squandered productivity.

    As the Bennetts explain in the book, most people seek a therapist in an effort to actively deny that they don’t have any control over their emotions. Stuck in a neurotic, fruitless loop, people begin to wonder why they can’t achieve perpetual happiness or erase their proclivity to procrastinate. If they could just fix the things they see as broken, they could then become the people they’ve always wanted to be and finally begin their lives.

    But just how much control do you really have over your feelings or your essential nature? According to the Bennetts, much less than you would like to believe. Your efforts are better spent elsewhere.

    In this episode, listen as Michael and Sarah explain what you should be doing instead, and why they say – “Fuck feelings.”

    After the interview, I discuss a news story about how people can be fooled into believing a meal is delicious when told a master chef cooked the meal.

    In every episode, after I read a bit of self delusion news, I taste a cookie baked from a recipe sent in by a listener/reader. That listener/reader wins a signed copy of my new book, “You Are Now Less Dumb,” and I post the recipe on the YANSS Pinterest page. This episode’s winner is Tiffany R Carrell who submitted a recipe for buttermilk cookies. Send your own recipes to david {at} youarenotsosmart.com.
