    Long Run Special

    Long Run Special

    We've been training all week... you know its coming... time to bite the bullet, tie the shoelaces tight and brace yourself its time for the long run. That most brutal and battering day of your training but we promise it's there for a reason. 

    In this weeks Steadcast we talk about the mental and physical benefits of the long run and share our personal experience with how they have affected our running over the years.

    Super Shoes in Training?

    Super Shoes in Training?

    We've ranted about them, we've seen the effects and we've discussed our opinions... but guess what? We now both own them! Let's crack the box open and catch up on all things carbon shoes and discuss the pros and cons of using them on the regular.

    We're back! 

    Its been far far too long and we're determined to get recording again. Just like the world of running, we've had our own challenges to work out as we've moved into 2021, but it felt great to record again! 

    In this comeback episode we have a long overdue catch up and hear Kierans own comeback to racing as we relive his most recent race at the Podium 5K. 

    We also have a little chat about shoes and look forward to racing (and the pub!) becoming a regular occurrence! 


    Thanks as always

    2020 London Marathon Review

    2020 London Marathon Review

    It's all over! What a crazy marathon day it was. We don't think there have ever been so many twists and turns in the build up to such a highly anticipated marathon. Kieran and Sam discuss their own marathon day experiences in the form of their involvement in the virtual race, then turn their attention to a somewhat predictable finish in the women's elite race and then a complete contrast in the mens race. We also discuss the British race and all the details in between. Who knows what 2021 might bring us

    2020 London Marathon Preview

    2020 London Marathon Preview

    It's almost time to get out for that one of a kind 26.2 mile enigma that is the London Marathon and after such a long lay off Kieran and Sam are excited to be discussing every aspect! 

    We catch up with the training and recovery of the hosts and what the Steadfast team will be doing to mark the occasion on Sunday October 4th. 

    We talk the professional race and the how the spirit of the marathon has been carried through these difficult times. Oh yeah and we even contemplate a world record too! 

    Thanks for being back with us!

    Olympic Special 1

    Olympic Special 1

    Its that time that only rolls around once every 4 years... well 5 years I guess now. In the week that record this episode, we should have been waking up early to watch the sun rise over the Tokyo 2020 games, but the year obviously had different plans... in place of the opening ceremony we talk about some of our favourite olympic moments, including world records, amazing stories and how some people aren't quite able to hack it on the world stage. 


    This is likely to be one of a few olympic podcasts as we found the stories are simply endless.

Makes me run further....

Always an interesting listen, the guys just work well as a duo. As a very amateur newbie to running I’ve learnt a lot from their knowledge of the sport and the discipline that is running.

However.....Please make the shows shorter....I listen whilst running and end up having to go further than planned so I can finish listening🤣. Just kidding....keep up the great work 👍

Top class

Kieran and Sam balance really well - one a top class national level athlete, and the other a keen amatuer with the same challenges as the rest of us! Insightful comment, and a good listen. The fact they are mates comes across clearly! Keep up the good work guys!
