The importance of patience and consistency, plus the Mountjoy Parkrun
Brian O'Connell speaks to high performance endurance coach Steve Macklin about the keys to a training programme. Also, Brian visits Mountjoy Prison to learn about the novel inmate Parkrun.
Over the course of 12 weeks, The RTE Running Podcast with Brian O'Connell will discuss everything from how to run your first couch to 5k, to what are the best runners to wear, how to avoid injury and detailing the ups and downs of marathon training. Along the way, everyone from weekend runners to Olympians will share their running stories and discuss why they run.
The podcast series is intended to appeal to both the novice and committed runner and will be presented in an informative, curious, and sometimes self-depreciating style. Throughout the series, Brian will detail his own marathon training, and involve some of his running club members as they train for Rotterdam in mid-April.
