Matt is joined this week by Run2PB coach Jack Davies as a guest co-host, as Zacca takes a well-earned break, especially after lots of yelling following the European Cup Soccer Final. Jack discusses how his training has been going over the last couple of months. Focussing on a steady build back up and incorporating specific strength work and cross training to support his running. We also hear how Jack attacked the Athletics Victoria Cruden Farm 12km XC race and managed to sneak into the Division 1 St Stephens Harriers team. Along with how his training week went in the lead up to the race. Jack and Matt also discuss some of the results from the Run2PB community over the weekend. Including the Cruden Farm 12km, the Traralgon Running Festival and Sri Chinmoy races. Matt chats about his week training, exploring a new location down at Sandy Point, hitting a couple of sessions around there and rolls over a big climb up a rail trail. Jack goes into detail about his great mate, Stewy McSweyn's latest performance at the Monaco Diamond League, clocking a huge run of 3:29:51 for the 1500m event. He also makes a prediction on how he'll go at the Olympics. Matt interviews one of his athletes, Tom James, who was on the show a few episodes ago. Hear how Tom went on his Breaking 2 + 1 challenge, made even more complicated following the cancellation of the Gold Coast Marathon.
