    49. Mike Dales. Exercise every day.

    Many listeners will be used to training for events of big trips.  Mike Dales calls these 'five course days' and wants you to pay more attention to the 'bread and butter' days. 

    His book Find Time for Exercise gives ideas for daily challenges to keep you moving which in turn creates greater base levels of fitness, no matter your starting point.   Mike and his partner run, walk, cycle, kayak or ski at least 5km every day and have done so for eight years.

    48. Nick Butter. Running Britain's coast & The 196 Foundation

    48. Nick Butter. Running Britain's coast & The 196 Foundation

    We’re stepping out of the monthly schedule with this podcast to bring you something extra.

    There are two parts to this conversation with Nick Butter who we heard from in episode 38.   The second part is about setting a new record for running around the coast of Great Britain.  The first is about a new, worldwide charity he’s establishing that is so different I genuinely think you’ll be interested in hearing more.

    47. Martyn Howe. Tales from the big trails.

    47. Martyn Howe. Tales from the big trails.

    There are nineteen, sort of official, long trails on this island and Martyn Howe has waked them all.   I’ll talk to Martyn about Long Distance Walking and his new book Tales From The Big Trails.  And we won’t stop there.  Because Martyn is quite a cyclist too having, among many other things, circumnavigated the north-sea by bike.

    She set out to run around the world.  She could become the first person to do it during a global pandemic.

    Marie Leautey, better known as 'Lootie', faced barrier after barrier while trying to run across Europe but she succeeded.  She speaks to us on her first day in the USA as she prepares to run across her second continent.

    45. Elise Downing. Running Britain's Coast

    45. Elise Downing. Running Britain's Coast

    It’s hard to overstate how ill prepared Elise Downing was to run around the coast of Britain.  But she did it, covering the five thousand miles in ten months.  Her very readable book about the adventure is published July 2021 and is called Coasting.  Here Elise reads excerpts from the book and how she went from jogger to ultra-runner.

    44. Dr Ian Walker. Ultra-distance running, cycling and research on road safety

    44. Dr Ian Walker. Ultra-distance running, cycling and research on road safety

    We cover a lot of ground with Dr Ian Walker, which seems rather fitting.  He ignored sport until the age of 40 then threw himself into ultra-running before abruptly switching to ultra-distance cycling and setting the trans-Europe world record.  He's also a psychologist researching drivers' behavior towards cyclists and has some fascinating insights about helmets and staying safe on two wheels.
