An Irishman Abroad

Irishman Running Abroad with Sonia O’Sullivan: “Tricks Of The Trade: The Creams, Gels, Ointments, Balms & Potions Of The Pros”

February 8, 2021
Sonia opens her medicine cabinet to reveal the over the counter fixer-upper tricks and treatments she has accumulated over the years. Everyone has niggling running pains but nobody has more solutions to cure them than the Irish athletics legend. We hear of a less than normal plant based solution for stimulating blood flow that has Jarlath on the floor and a rare bird oil sparks a memory for Sonia. There’s also a look at alternatives to running to help maintain your fitness at home during periods of injury or snow. Sonia’s Lent Event starts next week. She walks us through some homework you’ll need to do in order to take part.
