Christie Aschwanden is the Lead Writer for Science at 538 and a Health Columnist for the Washington Post. Christie is also a frequent contributor to the New York Times, a contributing Editor for Runner’s World and a contributing writer for Bicycling. Christie’s work appears in dozens of publications including Discover, Slate, Proto, Consumer Reports, New Scientist, More, Men’s Journal and NPR.ORG and the Oprah Magazine. What gives Christie’s work and in particular this New York Times Best Selling Book “Good to Go” such credibility is that Christie has been a lifetime athlete herself.

Christie has raced in Europe and North America on the Team Rosendall Nordick Ski Racing Squad. She is also a lifetime runner and has been an avid cyclist as well. Her book ‘Good to Go’, is really exploring how to aid sleep, rest like a champion. Christie approaches the current explosion which as she terms recovery industrial complex of products and services that sprung up across the last 5 or so years. We’ve all seen the explosion of recovery strategies, recovery centres, compression boots, hot cold baths, cryotherapy chambers, infrared soreness, you name it we’ve all seen and been exposed.

In Good to Go, Christie explores what’s known about recovery for athletes across an evidence continuum, from gimmicky right through the tried, tested and proven benefits of sleep for the athlete.

During this episode, we discuss the importance of monitoring your mood day to day, why prioritising sleep is just so crucial, the reason why we often cling to unproven debunked recovery modalities, the underlying drivers for this boom in recovery products and services, the perils of getting recovery wrong as an athlete in developing over training syndrome. Christie outlines some of the pitfalls of modern sports science research and Christie debunks just a few of the myths and mistaken beliefs that athletes for generations have held onto around things such as hydrating throughout endurance, refuelling post exercise, the use of ice for sports injuries and recovery. The evidence base for and against common recovery rituals such as stretching and foam rolling and so much more.
