The Milestone Pursuit
Being a Marathoner is hard: Part 1
Season 1, Ep. 106
Hi - This is the first part of a 4 part mini series which explores how hard being a marathoner is through the eyes and experiences of the elite athletes that we invest in as part of our scheme to support underfunded British elite marathon runners.
Over the next 4 episodes we are talking to Natasha Cockram, Josh Griffiths, Charlotte Purdue and Tish Jones, the first three of whom had difficult races while representing their country over the summer while Tish hasn't raced at all.
In this episode we talk to Natasha about the Commonwealth Games and what happened afterwards.....
Hope there is something in there that is useful for you.
Thanks a lot

Returning to Boston 2022
Season 1, Ep. 114
On the eve of the Boston Marathon 2023, we are turning back the clock, and repeating an episode from after last year's Boston Marathon, a race which seemed to capture the imagination more than the past. We explore a little why that might have been, and then listen to the fantastic experiences of Boston from some people that ran it - from Charlotte Purdue and her amazing 9th place finish, to Nat Rowland and the best day of his life, Annie Trihan and her evenly split Victory Lap, Tracey Taylor and her never to be repeated experience and finally James Brewster, who's story of mental health recovery is well worth waiting for.If you are running Boston this weekend, or planning to at any stage in the future, then this is well worth a listen.. ...Hope you enjoy it, thanks for listeningSteve

Working out, progressively mindfully
Season 1, Ep. 113
It's time for a workout, and amid some stresses in relation to UK Athletics stance on the size of competition squads at the Budapest World Championships and the Paris Olympics, we revert back to the origins of this podcast with a mindful running session, with a twist.In this one, the workout is around 30 minutes long and we work through a number of mindful cues as we pick up the pace through this progression run. A super workout that meets a number of needs - switching off from the world, working on technique AND working hard towards the end of the run.I hope you enjoy it, but if you don't I hope it helps you to get to sleep.Steve
