We’re excited to announce that we’re re-launching the Sweat Elite Podcast! We explain why in the intro of this episode before discussing the hot topic of the Nike Vaporfly’s – the racing shoe that has taken the running world by storm over the last couple of years.

Germany’s Phlipp Baar (2:16 Marathoner) joins Founder of Sweat Elite Matt Fox to discuss the topic in detail. Also discussed on the episode is a bit about Philipp’s training and the way he has handled some injuries of late.

The Nike Vaporfly’s have been worn by a very high percentage of the top 10km-Marathon times recently, including by Eliud Kipchoge and Brigit Kosgei in breaking both the mens and womens Marathon World Records in the last 2 years.

Stay tuned to the Sweat Elite podcast – coming up soon are episodes about our experience attending the INEOS159 Challenge, as well as an episode on how to get out of a “Mental Rut” (a common issue runners experience when they stagnate in training and racing) and enjoy running again.
