This podcast episode is a further exploration of the blog post, Anxious Progression One Day at a Time.

In this episode I explore the concept of progressive overload in physical fitness, and how that same concept can be applied to working through anxiety — mainly, progressively adding anxiety to our lives that we have to sit with, face, overcome, etc. It’s through the progressive overload of anxiety that we are ultimately transformed.

In this episode I share my own journey of doing this, as well as share some ideas and stories how others have used this concept — all set against the backdrop of my 100 mile run (which was a progressive overload for me physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually — over the course of many years).
