Back in late 2016, I came across the book Primal Endurance. I read it from cover to cover and realised that the message contained within provided some of the answers I was searching for. How to find a sustainable training, nutrition, and lifestyle routine for my 50’s, 60’s and beyond. One of the authors of Primal Endurance was Brad Kearns and a few months later I invited Brad to be a guest on my new podcast (this was my first 2-part podcast). I’ve been following Brad ever since, observing his own journey and taking some of those lessons to build my High Performance Human project.
I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did as we discuss:
- The principle of being coached by your 80-year-old self
- Learning to run slowly - Brad’s accidental meeting with a European running champion
- The constant quest to optimise health and adjust for whatever comes up
- Why we eat too often and the evolution of “Two Meals a Day”
- Eating fewer vegetables, more meat, and consuming ancestral supplements
- The Carnivore diet and the importance of being open-minded
- Active couch potato syndrome, micro workouts, and why you just need to move more
You can find Brad on all of the usual social media channels. Start with his website HERE.

These are some of the books that Brad has written and that we discussed in today's show:
