    Top 5 tips for runners aged 40+ - how to recover quicker & protect yourself against ageing!

    Nick Knight joins us again for an enlightening chat with Q&A about getting older as runners (I'm 40 in Feb and feeling exhausted!) - what can we do to recover quicker and protect ourselves from common age-related running issues like osteoarthritis, and how can we come to terms with never again reaching PB's from previous years? Nick is from NK Active, one of the UK’s leading musculoskeletal and rehabilitation clinics.

    Sophie Power - She.Runs founder, spearheading women’s equality in trail racing

    Sophie Power - She.Runs founder, spearheading women’s equality in trail racing

    Delighted to chat to Sophie! Sophie Power - She.Races founder, spearheading women's equality in trail racing after she had to make the decision to breastfeed her 3 month old at checkpoints on the UTMB 2018 or face losing out on a race that didn't allow deferrals for pregnancy and birth. 
    Originally on YouTube here https://youtu.be/hArsJq5-5yY
     
    Super excited to chat with Sophie as she has long been a hero of mine. How on earth she was fit enough to run 100 miles around the French, Italian and Swiss mountainside 3 months after giving birth to her second child is absolutely beyond me as I could only run for 5-10k 6 months after Finny was born and I'm only now up to half marathons and he's 2 in January! 
     
    How did she find the time and more importantly how was she not just totally knackered? Sophie has 3 kids now so it will be super interesting to find out how she juggles her time between work and play. 
     
    I'll make this into a podcast soon after, search Sophie Power Wild Ginger Running in your usual podcast provider and enjoy our chat on your next run!
