Roll On: True Endurance

How does one best prepare for a fitness challenge? What is the real value of testing one’s outer limits? And what constitutes true endurance?

These are but a few of the questions explored in today’s edition of Roll On, wherein Adam Skolnick and I blather on matters both pertinent and possibly irrelevant. We share good news and bad. We perform some show and tell. And as always, we answer listener questions.

For those new to the podcast, Adam Skolnick is an activist and veteran journalist best known as David Goggins’ Can’t Hurt Me, co-author. Adam has written about adventure sports, environmental issues, and civil rights for outlets such as The New York Times, Outside, ESPN, BBC, and Men’s Health. He is the author of One Breath and is currently hard at work on a novel.

Some of the many topics explored in today’s conversation include:

  • David Goggins’ 4 x 4 x 48 challenge;
  • proper endurance training;
  • what endurance teaches us about ourselves;
  • Rich’s Instagram mask controversy;
  • the rise of Clubhouse and the future of audio talk shows; and
  • World Surf League’s ‘We Are One Ocean’ campaign

In addition, we answer the following listener questions:

  • How do you release anger and resentment?
  • How do you find a partner with a similar lifestyle and goals (within a pandemic)?
  • What is your leadership philosophy? How do you show up for your team?

Thank you to Adam from Santa Monica, Madeleine from Redondo Beach, and Elizabeth from Nanaimo British Columbia for your questions. If you want your query discussed, drop it on our Facebook Page, or better yet leave a voicemail at (424) 235-4626.
