Julian tours his dodgy loop before running a dodgy gear change session, then nailing the progression run on the Bellarine Rail Trail.

Brady beats the traffic home on foot and finishes with a high fever and low iron, talking solutions and infusions.

Birmingham Diamond League was packed full of Australians, Stewy McSweyn headlining the Men’s 1500m with a second-place finish along Ryan Gregson, Matt Ramsden and Jordan Williamsz. Linden Hall and Jessica Hull also ran the mile while Joseph Deng competed in the 800m.

Jamie Harrison is this week’s guest and the “Fun Run King” shares years of training diaries with Brad, going about getting his progression and breakthrough as a junior runner, coming fourth and running in the era of Mona, Deeks & Carroll. Jamie talks about why he preferred running track to the roads, racing on average once a week and training in the days before GPS watches, as well as the changes to the overall fun run scene and how elite runners dictate their race schedule now compared to his day. They also go in-depth into training as an elite runner while studying to become a doctor, competing as a masters runner while the body ages and how runners should deal with healing their injuries and who the best practitioner to see is.
