Podcast: Episode 192 | Ask Mario Anything


“I think a lot of people never really get started because they just overanalyze some element of it. Strength training is definitely one of them, from a training standpoint. It’s like, ‘What strength training should I do?’ Are you doing any? ‘No.’ Well, just start doing some pushups or basic core—commit to doing something in that regard deliberately a few times a week and then refine it over time. So, whatever it is for you, just get started.”

This week on the podcast I’m answering listener questions in the first and last Ask Mario Anything episode of 2022. (Fear not! You can still submit questions for me to answer on the podcast but this monthly installment of the show will be taking on a new format the rest of the year, which I go into more detail about at the beginning of this episode.) On the other side of the mic for this one, once again, is Chris Douglas, my right-hand man and sponsorship director for the morning shakeout.

In this episode, I answered questions about some of the more challenging guests I’ve had on the podcast, strength training, drills, long runs, and a lot more.  

Thank you to everyone who submitted questions and apologies for all the ones I wasn’t able to answer in this episode. Got a question for me? Send it here.

Recovery days? Fresh Foam More v3 all the way. Race day? FuelCell RC Elite v2. Check ’em all out at your local run specialty store or on newbalance.com and consider adding a pair (or two!) to your rotation today.
