An Irishman Abroad

Irishman Running Abroad - Sonia On Kipchogie’s Miraculous Record & What To Do With 4 Weeks To Your Marathon.

September 27, 2022

Sonia O'Sullivan reflects on the astonishing performance of Eliud Kipchoge in Berlin on Sunday. Where does this place him in the pantheon of great athletes and has anyone dominated for so long? Jarlath and Sonia then plunge into the discussion of marathon training in the final few weeks before a big race. Nursing injuries they both headed to Poolbeg Parkrun to meet the listeners. Craic was head and there's more than a few shoutouts as Sonia recounts her worst ever marathon experience in Boston (Patreon version) and what to do if you think the race you have signed up for is a bit dodgy.
