MVP #058 – DISASTER! – Recovery When Everything Goes Wrong – Mark Phipps – Mocha Vegan Performance Podcast

Imagine the moment, your basketball team takes the court at another school. Wearing their bright blue uniforms smiling and excited for the game ahead. The first half is played aggressively with tons of energy. Your team is up almost twenty points at the half and spirits are extremely high. The other team is good, but your team is still in control of the game. In the second half, a series of events takes place that challenges all preparation and mental toughness. That’s the topic of this week’s conversation with Mark Phipps, age 12, regarding a recent basketball challenge never imagined.

Mocha Vegan Performance Podcast Episode #56 is available for your listening pleasure. Learn how to accomplish more than you ever thought possible!

MVP #056 – How to Run a 6-Minute Mile – Breaking Through Barriers


So you want to run a 6:00 mile or an 8:00 or 10:00 mile. You want to improve. YES! Identify your goal:

Let’s use the 6-Minute Mile.
One mile = 4 laps around the school track.
4 x 1:30 = 6:00
Half-lap pace would be 45 seconds or a quarter lap at 22.5 seconds.
You get the idea. Break down the goal into a small enough piece so that you can nail it! Then each week try to increase the number of times you can repeat this ‘miracle’ of new performance. Keep score, track your results and let me know how you do.
Running faster, lifting more weight, eating something better than a sleeve of Oreos when you get home. Performing any of these activities will require you to endure some pain. You have to train yourself to deal with some discomfort in order to enact change.
Habits are difficult to uproot. Try something fun and brush your teeth with the opposite hand or put on your pants with the other leg first.
Keep in mind that in order to change a habit, you must add in a replacement for that habit and practice it. Stick with in and you’ll be reporting that 6-Minute Mile in no time!
