Always learning from Extramilest
First-time reviewer as I’ve been hooked on this podcast for the past two months. Playing catch-up with earlier episodes as they remain fully relevant. Floris asks the most informed questions and gives his guests the time and space to talk in detail about their origin story, short and long term approach, triumphs and challenges, mindset and habits. He’s the perfect host who runs an efficient, friendly and information-packed session. He will ask that seemingly arcane question you were wondering about and he shares his own experiences where they relate to the conversation. Gierman’s own running story is fascinating in itself. Pleased to have discovered this podcast gem. It’s given new life to my running.
Excellent information on becoming the best runner you can be. Floris does an amazing job and I have been learning something great with each episode.
This is it
The only running podcast you need.
