When is it ok to train through illness and how should you adapt your training when recovering from a malady? We look at several common ailments and discuss if it is safe to train through, whether you should rest up instead and how you should return to training afterwards. Cristina M Ramirez is a three time Ironman and best selling author. We talk about how she teaches growth mindset to kids using running as a tool and about her co-founding of a foundation that pairs up able bodied and paraathletes for competing in endurance events among her many other remarkable exploits.
