This week we welcome a great friend of the School of Calisthenics Martin Yelling from Marathon Talk onto the podcast. Martin is a former international runner, elite duathlete and triathlete he’s finished the Hawaii Ironman and completed the Comrades Ultra. He also ran 260miles, 50,000ft of elevation in 7 days along the South West Coast Path but couldn’t finish the full 630mile route!
Martin is married to two-time Olympic marathon runner and Commonwealth medalist Liz Yelling and together they run endurance sports consultancy Yelling Performance. He holds a PhD in physical activity promotion and is an experienced endurance coach, writer and presenter of Marathon Talk so when it comes to running advise and Martin is talking – you listen!
We also discuss a great new venture he’s started called Storm Break which is supporting children’s mental health through movement, a concept that understandably we love given the new name of the Movement, Strength & Play podcast!
Hope you enjoy this episode as much as we did catching up with Martin.
