Julian pitches a potential new segment for the show as he works on strength and hills before his high mileage takes a hit with illness. His morale and workout on Saturday gets a lift at the Ballarat parkrun (but forgets his barcode) before laps around the You Yangs on Sunday.
Brad consults with his coach post-Lake Biwa as he grinds through his runs an hour at a time and still riding high on his marathon fitness before heading off to school camp for the week.
Brady vainly chases a Strava segment course record before doing a workout with other runners, then takes on the task as his local footy team’s waterboy and experiences a culture shock in action on the ground.
Julian leads the recap on the Australian representatives from World Half Marathon Championships in Valencia, Spain, which despite the windy and humid conditions produced some stellar performances.
Sinead Diver and Ellie Pashley both run PBs of 1:11:40 & 1:11:43 respectively placing 23 & 24th in the world and elevating to Gold Label Status.
Collis Birmingham overcomes the crowd-crush at the start to finish top Aussie with a season best of 1:03:44, with Tassie product Dejen Gebreselassie right behind him in 1:03:47. Thomas Do Canto also ran a personal best of 1:04:18.
Listener Shane asks about the distance the boys wouldn’t want to face off against, and then Moose on the Loose lays into one of the cohosts about the shallow, petty pursuit of Strava segment course records.
This week’s guests are Athletics Essendon power couple Charlotte Wilson & Liam Adams. The pair were fresh off their wins from Run For The Kids and gave a recap on their respective races, how they felt in the lead up and how it unfolded.
Charlotte talks about her path on running B Qualifiers for the Steeplechase and how she sees herself progressing in the event as well as running longer distances and on the road.
Liam gives details about how he’s approached training for the upcoming Gold Coast Commonwealth Games marathon, how it compares to Rio and Glasgow as well as the plan of attack with fellow teammate Michael Shelley.
Charlotte then recounts the time Liam stopped at Maccas to refuel in the middle of a long run, before Liam opens up on his current relationship on sponsors.
