If you’re just starting out or are a seasoned half marathon enthusiast you’re going to need Sonia’s advice on how to prepare a training plan. Fresh off the high of his first 5K, Jarlath asks Sonia about the come-down after an event that we might have pinned all our hopes upon. How do we survive success, find the next mountain and park the imagination when the next mountain looks remarkably similar to the last one.
Sonia looks at giving each run a purpose and explains the power of threshold training as she devises Jarlath's training plan. To see the plan, join our running club on strava.com/irishmanabroad. There’s even a brief trip down memory lane as Jarlath asks Sonia about seeing the Dream Team at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona.
