    338: Expert Edition: Assoc Prof Rich Willy: The Masters Runner

    In this rewired episode, we focused discussions on the needs of the Master’s runner and explored the physiology, biomechanics, injury risk and rehabilitation of the Master’s running athlete.
    Rich shares around why we slow down as we age, the principles that underpin the changes that we see, why our tendons tend to lose stiffness as we age, what happens to our calves as propulsive elements as we mature as runners. Why strength training is such a critical component of the ageing runners training program and how to structure strength training around the week’s running volume. Rich answers the age old question, is running bad for our knees? He explains why a fast walking pace can be correlated with great longevity in life and touches on the role of footwear and shoe selection for the ageing or master’s runner.

    337: Interest Edition: Jan Sibbersen: IRONMAN Kona Swim Record Holder (43yrs), Founder Sailfish

    337: Interest Edition: Jan Sibbersen: IRONMAN Kona Swim Record Holder (43yrs), Founder Sailfish

    Jan began his sporting career with a 10-year stint in the German national swim team between 1990 - 2000, whilst simultaneously completing studies at Harvard University with a degree in Economics. He then ventured into the investment banking world, however, his true calling drew him back to the sporting arena to the world of Triathlon.
    Between 2001 and 2004, Jan went on to achieve four ‘first out of the water’ titles at the Ironman Hawaii World Championships and in 2004 Jan set the world record Ironman swim time of 42:17 at Ironman Germany in Frankfurt. Jan continued to compete professionally in the global triathlon circuit until 2007 when he founded Sailfish. The company expanded internationally and continues to set global standards as one of the world's best Triathlon brands, amongst both professionals and amateurs.
    In 2018, Jan was unsettled with missing the fastest KONA swim time by just 6 seconds in 2003, so he launched a two-year comeback to finally break the Ironman World Championship swim record. At the age of 43, 17 years after his first appearance at the Hawaii Ironman Jan swam a blistering 46:29, of which the record still stands today. Between 2015 and 2019, Jan ran the Triathlon Convention Europe and between 2016 and 2021 Jan managed Patrick Langer 2x Ironman World Triathlon Champion.

    Ed Goddard is a rising Australian distance running star from Mosman, New South Wales, he recently finished 2nd in the half marathon at the 2022 Gold Coast Airport Marathon.
    One of the endearing things about Ed is he's very true to who he is as a person and those that know him know of the “Golden mullet” and the frequent sighting of his Oakley sunglasses on his head.
    This is a fun chat sharing around relative energy deficiency in sport (RED-S), iron deficiency and overcoming those, along with the importance of keeping training fun and sustainable.
