Irishman Running Abroad With Sonia O’Sullivan: Episode 3 “Running Is Mental.”

September 7, 2020

Running is mental. In this latest instalment of An Irishman Running Abroad with Sonia O'Sullivan, Sonia explains the importance of mental fitness, the challenge of getting out the door while also providing some nutrition advice ahead of a run.

Sonia also discusses the phenomenon of being either a morning or evening runner, how therapy can be found in running before addressing the nose-or-mouth-breathing debate. Jarlath also gets embarrassed in front of the class!
