    Episode 223 – Push-Ups 101

    This week, Bryan returns to running with a bang—a snowy WOahMAN with his friend Joev Dubach—while Peter returns to walking with doctor approval. Then, Peter has a one-on-one session with push-up expert Emily Saul of the November Project. Emily gives Peter advice on his push-up endeavor and talks about the dance between having strong discipline and strong self-compassion. She shares a new strategy she's trying for her 125 daily push-ups called EMOM (Every Minute On the Minute), explains how to standardize a push-up, and talks about how the practice that Peter is building with his push-up challenge will apply to other aspects of life. Plus, a new running app inspired by Bryan's Soul Searching Solstice Run (developed by HWYRTian Eric Nelson).

They can even make running fun!

Bryan and Peter have a great chemistry that helps take the pressure off of running. I have to admit that I’m not one for king distance running, but I now realize I like hearing about it :)

Please don’t...

Hey guys! I’d like to start off by saying that I love your podcast. I look forward to listening to you during my long weekend run. Great content. However, one request… Please keep politics out of of it. I use running as an escape from the craziness of my daily life. Please don’t take that away from me. Keep politics out. Thanks!
