Ep 41 - Interview with Ed Goddard post Melbourne Marathon debut The Running Guy Podcast

    • Running

Ed Goddard did not let go of the dream of representing Australia at a Major Championship and running one of the fastest marathons by an Australian, when he suffered a fracture of his calcaneus at the beginning of the year. He set out and made it a priority of surrounding himself with a great support team of friends and health professionals that would enable him to maintain a high level of fitness through cross training and rehabilitation that enabled him to return to running at a high level as fast as possible. Ed spontaneously travelled back to race the Cross Country for IONA College (New York) after a marathon specific session showed very good signs of strength and fitness. That sense of fitness proved true when he qualified in Boston for the Nationals in Florida over the 10k distance. Ed flew back home after his brief 2 week race/taper period that prepared him for his debut marathon. Ed went on to run one of the fastest marathons on debut by an Australian on Australian soil 2:15:13 and has certainly proved his ability to not only absorb the high volume of marathon training but the rigors of racing road marathons on the mind and body. Ed is feeling confident that he has a few minutes up his sleeve with a couple of more months of training in his legs. Really looking forward to watching Ed chase his goal of picking up an Aussie singlet or two at the majors next year and chasing that 2:11:30 marathon qualifying standard in February 2022. All the best Ed!
