#40: Ice Baths - Bad? Inflammation - Good?

By BibRave

Dr. David Harmon (aka Cholesterol Dave from Episode 34: Nutrition Confusion) joins the show again, and we discuss something extremely important for runners to understand: inflammation. Dr. Harmon dispels several myths and misunderstandings about inflammation, describing what happens during inflammation and why it’s super important for performance benefits. That means, stopping inflammation through things like ice baths and ibuprofen? Probably counter productive if you want to keep those GAINS! Anyway, another super interesting conversation and we hope you enjoy. We also filmed the recording via Facebook Live, so check it out if you want to see what everyone looks like! 😂 Show Notes: David Harmon, MD, MPH (OHSU Profile, Instagram) Chop & Steele For those digging the sweet ukulele intro music, that comes to us from the talented musician and running coach, Matt Flaherty. Check out his site for more audio goodness!    If you like what you hear and want to get more, please subscribe in iTunes and leave a review. That pleases our overlords at iTunes... 😬 If you want more from the BibRave running community, check out our race review page at or follow us on Twitter @BibRave. Thanks, and hope you enjoy!
