    Episode 116 - Gavin Burren

    Episode 116 - Gavin Burren

    Once an Englishman, now a coach to many and many future greats - This week on the podcast I speak to Gavin Burren (@gburren1500).
    Hailing from Knox, Gav is coach to the likes of @abbeycaldwelll @lachlan_herd and @lissyduncs. With a roster of such calibre, it was all the more exciting to get the opportunity to talk coaching and “winning” with Gav.
    On the pod, we discuss a number of topics - ultimately unravelling what has made Gav such a successful coach.
    Sharing in my belief, he explains the power in group training and just how powerful good training partners/squads can be. That quite often it is the team that surrounds the athlete that takes them that extra step.
    Just as so, it’s the relationship that athletes share with their coaches rather than the programming of training that makes such a dynamic a success.
    Gavin provides an honest and humble insight into his philosophy, common training practices, mistakes, and learnings from years in the sport.
    With the recent breakthroughs his athletes have made, especially the near-olympic selection quality of Abbey and Mellissa - such insight is gold for athletes and coaches alike!

    Episode 115 - Jenny Blundell (5,000m Olympian)

    Episode 115 - Jenny Blundell (5,000m Olympian)

    Two weeks are all that remain before the Tokyo Olympics and with that in mind, I was very fortunate to get the chance to chat with Jenny Blundell.

    Off the back of her national 5,000m title, and a dominant run just shy of the Olympic standard - Jenny has recently been selected to represent Australia in the 5,000m.
    It’s a jump up in distance for her, having previously shown her strength over the 1500m. Though with her name regularly appearing amongst the best, it couldn’t be more exciting to see what she can do on the Olympic stage!!

    As you’ll hear, she’s got a good head on her shoulders. With injury comebacks behind her, inspiring races, plenty of hard work, support from New Balance and now her second run in the green and gold - she has really lived the full running experience, and still living it at that!!

    We wish Jenny all the best! Do us proud and thanks for giving up your time to chat on the show!

    Episode 114- Hugh Van Cuylenburg- Resiliency and Running

    Episode 114- Hugh Van Cuylenburg- Resiliency and Running

    Today, I had the privilege to chat to author and founder of 'The Resilience Project', co-host of 'The Imperfects' podcast with Ryan Sheldon and running training partner of Aussie 800m record holder; Catriona Bissett... Hugh Van Cuylenburg.
    It's a timely chat, with the ever present, global, COVID-19 pandemic, challenging everyone's 'resiliency'.
    Resilience is defined as one's; 'toughness' or 'the ability to recover quickly from hardship'.
    Hugh has developed and facilitated 'resiliency' programs for more than 1000 schools Australia wide. He has spoke about 'resiliency' to numerous AFL, NRL, Australian sporting teams and many corporate organisations.
    Hugh articulates how; running, gratitude, empathy, mindfulness and happiness intersect, so well. As you will see he is such an awesome story teller! 
    Anway, it's a really enjoyable chat from a fellow passionate runner!
    Oh...and for those that are interested in what 'matumbo' (name of a Nike running spike) translates to in Swahili, then tune in. 
    If you really enjoyed Hugh's message, then be sure to reach out to him on his website: The Resilience Project or listen to his podcast: the imperfects Podcast - The Resilience Project
    Thanks again Hugh, your enthusiasm is infectious, I left this podcast buzzing!

    Episode 113- Athlete-coach chat with Run Culture Owl athletes; Jess Dunsmore, Pete Dutton and Damien Clark

    Episode 113- Athlete-coach chat with Run Culture Owl athletes; Jess Dunsmore, Pete Dutton and Damien Clark

    Today I caught up with three of the Run Culture Owl 

    athletes I coach; Jess Dunsmore, Pete Dutton and Damien Clark.



    This episode is a relaxed team (athlete-coach) chat.

    We reflect on how races and training has gone over the past 

    couple of months. We also discuss some personal highlights, 

    lessons learnt and goals going forward.



    This episode is a wonderful chance get to know the Run Culture Owl

    athletes further, understand their journey, see that running can 

    very much be a team sport and is so much more fruitful, meaningful

    and enjoyable as such. You may also find some of this chat grows your

    own running.



    Oh and importantly....



    This Saturday the 'Owls' are holding an intra squad 5km time trial 

    at Ballam Park at 9am to unveil the 2021 new Run Culture Owl singlet.

    The singlet will go on sale to the public from Tuesday (22/6/21) next week.

    Proceeds will go toward helping support the squad financially. 

    We chat about the origins of the new singlet design (that the squad is

    all pretty proud to don) in the show. This yearly singlet update is a 

    tradition the squad looks to carry on annually



    The singlet helps identify and unite us as a team but its meaning is bigger than this.

    As a passionate lifelong runner and physiotherapist (myself) I value the importance of 

    daily physical activity and how vital it is in helping maintain our

    long term physical and psychological health in a world that has never been 

    so sedentary. 

     

    So, if you also value the effect daily physical activity has in maintaining your overall health 

    or if you like what we are doing for the sport as a team or you get a lot out

    of our podcasts each week then grab a singlet and show your support 

    next Tuesday!



    I urge everyone to join us for the ride. Let’s Run.Live.Grow together!

    Episode 112- Getting injured or underperforming is a necessary evil | Dane Verwey

    Episode 112- Getting injured or underperforming is a necessary evil | Dane Verwey

    I want more runners to accept that; 'Getting injured or underperforming can be a good thing!' 

    Obviously, we all want to perform consistently and avoid long injury lay offs. Form slumps and long term injuries as super keen runner 'are the pits' .........but what if I was to say they are a necessary evil?? 

    Aiming to starve off injury or reaching for PBs are two contradictory ideals.

    If your sole aim is to prevent injury in your running, well this is easy, don't push/don't change what is working, run within your comfort zone. On the other hand if you are determined to push your body to performance levels it has never achieved before this requires challenging training that stresses the body.  Occasionally, when searching for that bit extra in training to optimize our running performance we 'over train', this can lead  to injury. 

    So, as you can see there is an adaptation 'sweet spot'. Under stress the body in training and you wont improve but you wont get injured. Over stress the body for too long and the chance of injury is high. The art is working out your sweet spot!

    Avoiding running injury and ensuring optimal running performance isn't about luck, there is always a 'why?' 

    In terms of viewing the bigger picture, if you are really serious about reaching your full potential as a runner then you need to know running injury and  poor performance is a necessary part of the tumultuous journey to finding your greater self. These experiences are necessary rungs in the ladder to learning what works for you. The key is to be really introspective and reflect on what our life circumstances and training looked like during and before these times.

    Episode 110- Mastering the skill of Running Technique with: Shane Benzies

    Episode 110- Mastering the skill of Running Technique with: Shane Benzies

    I had a ball talking with Shane Benzies the author of the book; 'The lost art of running'. Shane is a researcher and movement coach. Over the past 8 years he has spent time researching indigenous running communities the world over. After spending time in Kenya and Ethiopia and analysing some of the best runners in the world he was in awe of how graceful they ran. Why do so many runners of the Western world not run with this grace and ease? He soon had a lightbulb moment and came up with the term; 'elastic runner'. Listen to this episode and I'm sure you will leave the chat with a greater appreciation of the ins and outs of running technique. If you loved this chat and want to find out more about Shane Benzies be sure to log onto his website at;  Welcome | Running Reborn and his instagram page.
