#48: Brad Kearns and Andrew MacNaughton

Brad and Andrew are at it again with a free-flowing conversation hitting on some key Primal Endurance principles, as well as assorted pearly-nuggets from the duos’ decades of experience racing and coaching endurance athletes. Andrew emphasizes the importance of training by feel, cultivating a strong enthusiasm to train and honoring times when your enthusiasm is low by chilling out. The pair encourage listeners to pursue goals that feel inspiring and appropriate to the individual, instead of just following the pack to pursue popular distances that could be too extreme to fit sensibly into busy life. Andrew talks about the importance of a holistic coach/athlete relationship, where real dialog occurs about life variables, moods, and energy fluctuations that can affect training and racing decisions. If you are looking for a boring, straightforward discussion of scientific training topics, search for another podcast. If you like to get a little unplugged and do some straight talk about the issues of major importance to having fun and succeeding with your endurance career, then you will enjoy this show!
