Angriest Trainer 75: The Serena Scott Thomas Interview


Vinnie and Anna talk Chi Running with the beautiful and lovely Serena Scott Thomas.

Michael Tortorich sums up the podcast in the My Uncle Vinnie Blog Wrap Up:

Serena Scott Thomas is in studio for an interview. Early in the show, they talk about the good Senator, Gary Hand. Check out the “before and after” photos below. Around April, he weighed at least 250 pounds. By mid November, he was down to 210. He’s currently 200, and has gone from a size 42 jeans to a 34. “This first picture is the reason why I decided I needed to lose weight,” Gary says. “I look ten years older…and check out that chin!” Vinnie then mentions neuroscientist Molly Crockett from TED. They later talk about the possibility of Vinnie giving a talk for TED. Serena and Vinnie then recall the time they broke up. Vinnie later mentions the newsletter he’ll start sending out, which can be found on Serena tells of her experience in her latest ultra marathon. That leads to a discussion about electrolytes. Serena later explains Chi Running.

  3. Don't forget to SUBSCRIBE while you're here!

  4. Loved this podcast episode! Bring Serena back more often!

  5. Loved the Chi running information! I've been hacking through Newton running, but not really feeling the shoes. Chi running seems much more natural and instinctive. I also want to order the saltsticks and succeed hydrolytes. It's a shame, there's no way to order through your website to give you a little piece of the action. As one of the 0.5% of the black triathletes out there I need all the help I can get. LOL I feel like each one of your podcast could be a University course…so much information flying at you! Keep up the good work.

    • Thanks Simba! If you click on the Amazon banner on this page, before you go to amazon to buy your electrolytes, we will get a small % that won't effect your sale. Also, buy the chi running book, it's worth the read… It will help more than any shoe you can buy… Also, Born To Run is a great read.

    • Thanks, I did figure out the Amazon thing. Ordered my daughters Kindle book through your link too.

    • Currently eating bacon, lots of green beans, broccoli, jalapenos, avocados, greens, artichokes, nuts (Macadamia, cashew, almond raw), wild caught Salmon, baked chicken, grass fed beef, Kombucha, coconut water, scrambled eggs with butter sometimes smoked raw cheese, coffee w/heavy cream, blueberries, strawberries, apple slices, pears, and coconut oil.

    I have been training for my first triathlon for the last four months. Working out six days a week, calorie in, calorie out and I GAINED 10 pounds. Devastated, I almost quit, but then I got turned onto your podcast! No grains, no sugar since January 2nd and I feel fantastic. Also, my heart rate doesn't sky rocket during my runs anymore! THANK YOU BOTH SO MUCH!

    • Tamarah DeWolf says:

      I am with you Charlotte . Good luck on your Tri . I am signed up for one so far this year I hope to fit in a couple more . No sugars No Grains ,,, feels fantastic !

    • Charlotte, you will go through lots of ups and downs for about 3 weeks, but if you stick with it, you will start to see benefits like never before! Good luck and keep me posted.
