Irishman Running Abroad - Running Better Despite Getting Older

November 14, 2022

Does running need to get more difficult with age? Have we all got a certain number of miles before injuries will start to plague us? Sonia O'Sullivan talks to Jarlath about the misconceptions and solid theories behind running over the age of 40 and beyond. What adjustments should we make to recovery, intensity and load? Is there a particular type of running we should avoid? Sonia has the answers. Vinny Mulvey helps Jarlath back on the road to recovery after a 4 week lay off with SI joint pain. We hear how the first run back goes from the side of the road. We also get Sonia's opinion on the most talked about story in Irish athletics this week. Carl Luas!
