In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Associate Professor at Australian Catholic University, Shona Halson. This is the second time Shona has been on the podcast after she appeared in episode #82 and we build on a lot of the topics mentioned over 3 years ago. Shona is an expert when it comes to sleep and recovery so naturally that forms a huge part of this conversation. Shona is speaking at the ACU and Notre Dame Human Performance Summit in a couple of weeks so be sure to check her out at this amazing conference.
Hope you enjoy this episode with Shona Halson.
