The fear of injury is a constant conscious or unconscious fear for every athlete no matter what their experience level. For many it’s the reason they avoid running completely. Rather than feeling powerless over the prospect of injury, Jarlath asks Sonia O’Sullivan and another gold medal winning Irish athlete, our special guest David Gillick, if there is a formula to avoid picking up physical ailments from running. With the European Cross Country Championships in Dublin last weekend we get a review of what took place and the standout performances. There’s a trip around the parishes to see which Irishman Abroad club members broke their PBs and a lot more over in the full extended cut on Patreon.com/irishmanabroad.
