What can we learn from the greatest marathoner of all time? Cathal Dennehy travelled to Kaptagat and lived there for 3 days absorbing everything. He chats to Sonia and Jar about exactly what mere mortals can apply to their training. It’s eye-opening stuff to say the least. Sonia also gives us an update on her travels and explains the benefits of incorporating one track session into your training each week. There’s also a hilarious account of a nightmare run Jarlath had on Halloween morning and Sonia’s now legendary tip of the week. To read about Cathal’s trip to Kenya click here
