#51The One Where Ness Ran 100km

July 20, 2017

This week, Ness is back!

And we are talking about what it's really like to run 100km. We talk about how she felt going into it after her last (very) long run, how she felt going into such an epic run, support crew shenanigans and would she do it again?

You can follow Ness on facebook and instagram. And you can check out her interview on Sparta Chicks Radio too!

And I had a bit of surprise news this week too!

It's been a huge week! And I talk a bit about some of the exciting things that have been happening in Operation Move land. But if you want to skip to the juicy bit you can do that here.

It was pretty incredible to be honoured by some of the women that I admire the most and to be put forward for that honour by the most amazing women I know.

#49 Meet Jane: Road Runner, Trail Runner, parkrunner and Marathoner in training

July 7, 2017

This week, I am talking to Jane

I love a good running origin story. This week, I'm talking to Jane about why she started running and what kept her going. We talk a bit about her experiences of running the Great Ocean Road (twice) and what she's learned along the way. Jane is such an active part of our community, I know you will all love to hear her voice and find out a bit more about her story.

And I talk a little bit about what happened on the Gold Coast too. Just in case by some miracle you haven't been instagram-spammed with all of the things.

#48 Taper crazy? How to develop mental resilience in your final week

June 28, 2017

This week, I'm talking about the taper

We have so many people heading to the Gold Coast this week and for many people the end of the training cycle is the most mentally challenging. It's where all the doubts come in. Phantom illnesses come in. Phantom injuries. And in general you spend way too much time thinking about how everything could go horribly wrong.

So this week I'm talking about getting your mental resilience game strong for your final week before an event.

And if you are coming to the Gold Coast, pop into the Community group and let us know!

#47 Meet Jo: Trail Lover, Ultra Badass and Low Heart Rate Runner

June 22, 2017

This week I am having a chat to Jo

And we tackle some of the burning questions that people have like:

  • How do you fit in training for a 100km trail run AND work AND do mum/partner/life stuff too?
  • What does low heart training look like
  • How does she fuel her really long runs (it's more delicious than you might think)
  • And why discipline will trump ego

You can check out Jo at her blog, on her instagram or in the community group

#46 Strategising Your Next Half Marathon PB

June 15, 2017

In case you were living under a rock, I ran a half marathon last weekend at race pace

There wasn't an organised race, I just picked a route to run locally. But it did get me thinking about all of the strategy that goes into the event itself, even after you've done all the training.

There is:

  • Nutrition in the lead up: should you be carb-loading or avoiding fiber?
  • Hydration before the big day: how to make sure you are actually absorbing all of that water
  • What's your pacing strategy: why negative splits are terrifying, but can help you
  • What's your on-day nutrition and fuelling strategy?
  • Why would you warm up when you are running a ridiculous amount of kilometres anyway?
  • And finally, your recovery plan

So I talk a bit about all of those things and I have a teeny little rant about those posters that reduce the distance of your run to a certain number of cupcakes or donuts. Don't even get me started. And here's that phat fudge recipe I was talking about.

#45 Meet Katherine: Runner, Hiker, Blogger and Expat in San Francisco

June 9, 2017

This week, I am talking to Katherine.

Who is always one of my favourite people to talk to. Did you know that she was one of the first people I ever had the pleasure to coach? She was! We started working together about three years ago and a whole lot has happened in that time, but she's still one of the most kind and thoughtful people you are likely to meet. Don't tell her I said that, she is not keen on compliments!

If you'd like to check Katherine out you can find her on instagram, facebooktwitter and at her blog. And of course you can always have a chat to her in the community group too!

#44 Why setbacks have a lot in common with achieving big goals

June 2, 2017

This week we are talking about achieving big goals and also what happens when you don't

Because the funny thing is that both things have a lot more in common than you think, whether you lose motivation because of a disappointment or you lose motivation because you've achieved your big goal, the end result is the same - you can kind of float around feeling lost for awhile.

Exhibit A: Me having no idea what to do

Things I mention:

#43 Meet Ness: Ultrarunner, Crossfitter and All Round Badass

May 24, 2017

This week on the podcast we are talking to Ness!

You can find her on instagram and facebook. And if you want to have a chat to her, you can also find her in the community group. And we are having a chat about her training for running 100km at UTA. I think the biggest question people have about training for a 100km race or any ultra event is how much time do you spend running, and it might not be as much as you think it is!

Announcements!
