082: Trains, Choppers & Running clubs!

July 21, 2021

Welcome to your weekly dose of running motivation.

Today's guest is Adam Smith, who's a passionate (and FAST) club runner.  He talks about how many of us experienced issues with motivation during the Covid lockdowns, when we weren't able to run in groups.  He's a devoted member of Aldridge Running Club and tells us about the brilliant ways the group kept themselves motivated and running during the trickiest of times.

AskJake:  Each week, we'll take one of your questions and Jake will answer it.   Today, we're talking about needing to pee when out on your long runs!

Welcome to your weekly dose of running motivation.

Following on from Episode 79 with Anna, and Kate on Episode 77, we chat with ANOTHER of the presenters from The Running Channel (They're like buses, this lot!)  - Today it's Rick Kelsey's turn.

Whilst his previous target was to beat his PB's for the next 10 years consecutively, he's had to re-evaluate after after an old rugby injury reared it's ugly head!  His big target is now to be able to walk pain free again.  Rick's resilience and positively is an inspiration to others who are also on the comeback trail.  The content surrounding Rick's injury on the channel is brilliantly done.  To see his post-surgery video CLICK HERE.

Welcome to your weekly dose of running motivation.

On this episode, Jake is forced to host the show on his own as Pete the Producer has ‘miscalculated’ his run and can’t make it back in time. Despite Jake suggesting Pete ‘pick up the pace a bit’.
 
Fortunately, today’s guest is so epic that you won’t even notice the absence of the show producer! We speak to Jess Turner - British 400m hurdler AND soon-to-be Olympian!
 
Competing in her first Olympic Games Jess is clearly ecstatic about the whole thing. In fact cloud 9 doesn’t cut it….. no cloud below 100 is even worth mentioning!

 

#AskJake:  Each week, we'll take one of your questions and Jake will answer it.   Today, we're talking about shoes and heel drops!

Welcome to your weekly dose of running motivation.

Today’s guest is Anna Harding from The Running Channel. Back from a busy few days filming with team in the Scottish Mountains, Anna was happy to kick back, chill out, and talk all things running! 

After a recent stint on the injury bench due to a calf tear, Anna is now well and truly on the comeback trail and has a lofty goal of qualifying for the Boston Marathon in her sights (sub 3hrs 30mins). 

Anna runs to challenge herself, look after her mental health, and she loves the adventure of preparing for ambitious goals.  You can see her latest video for The Running Channel about the Boston Marathon by [CLICKING HERE]

Welcome to your weekly dose of running motivation.

On this episode, Jake's convinced himself that he's best friends with Mike Gratton.  Mike's the 1983 winner of the London Marathon, a respected and brilliant  running coach... and also runs his events company, 2:09 Events, who organise running events all around the world.

Mike's the show's favourite running coach (except for Jake, of course), and he's agreed to come back to share more of his awesome knowledge; this time round is centred on training for marathons.  If you missed Mike's previous appearance on the PLODcast, you neeeeeed to check out Episode 61

 

#AskJake:  Each week, we'll take one of your questions and Jake will answer it.   Today, we're talking about waterproof running clothes.
