Enjoying the dream start to his professional career, Ollie set a national record indoors over 1500m to kick off a globally competitive season. Walking listeners through qualifying for the Olympics during a pandemic, Ollie describes the rain-soaked, unofficial Australian Olympic 1500m trial at the Gateshead Diamond League. A debut Olympic Games is high-pressure for the best of the best, Ollie imparts a lesson or two to all runners in how the fastest middle-distance athletes cope at the biggest event in athletics.

    Launceston calling with Jack Rayner

    23:51

    For the last episode in season two, we’re joined by the cult hero Jack Rayner. Jack is probably best known for his 2:11:06 marathon on debut in London 2019, but this week we’re talking about the Launceston Running Festival coming up this weekend. Jack is headlining a star studded field in the 10km – Jack is the defending champ here, having won in 2018 (the race wasn’t held in 2019). We also hear about how Jack has bounced back from an injury that ruined his plans for this year’s London Marathon, and learn about his plans over summer – exciting to hear he will be spending more time on the track in the first half of 2021.Finally, Jack talks a bit about his marathon plans leading into the Olympics – revealing he’ll probably only race another one before Tokyo if it looks like someone will eclipse his 2:11:06 and knock him out of an Olympic spot.Thanks for joining us this season on Running Things – the response has been amazing and we’re so glad you’ve enjoyed the guests we’ve had on each week. Look for season three in mid January!LinksWatch Running Things on YouTubeJack Rayner on InstagramPulse Running on InstagramLaunceston Running FestivalRiley Wolff on InstagramTempo Journal on Instagramtempojournal.com

    240 kilometres with Michaela McDonald

    43:47

    This week on the show Riley speaks to Sydney based ultrarunner Michaela McDonald, ahead of this week’s ‘Coast 2 Kosci’ – a 240km ultramarathon finishing at Mt Kosciuzsko. Michaela is an experienced ultrarunner but this will be her first time tackling this event, and we get the rundown on what it’s like to train and prepare for something so monumental.We talk through nutrition plans for the race, which Michaela expects to take around 30 hours (give or take) – as well as real food, Michaela is packing 60 to 70 gels – surely enough to dint even the strongest of iron stomachs.Ultra races can seem daunting – with good reason – but Michaela shares her plan for getting through the distance, and it’s similar to any other race distance – breaking up the race into manageable chunks, worrying only about the chunk you’re in. It’s good advice for anyone, whether you’re an experienced road runner or new to the sport entirely. The Coast 2 Kosci is a very grassroots event – this year will see just 49 entrants on the start line, and it relies heavily on local community support. It’s one of the things that generally makes ultra running in Australia so good – the sense of community and camaraderie. And while the Coast 2 Kosci typically flies under the radar, this year the TEMPO team will be there to document Michaela’s race and shine a light on one of the longest races anywhere in Australia.

    Distance runners are happy with Camille Buscomb

    47:58

    We head across the ditch this week to speak with New Zealand's 11-time national champion, Camille Buscomb. Camille has been back home in New Zealand since March, when she returned for a family wedding – at the time not knowing the world's borders would close and competitions everywhere would be cancelled. Camille has enjoyed relative freedom of movement when compared to some parts of Australia, and in the past month has raced a number of times on the roads – running a PB at the Auckland Half Marathon earlier this month. We check in on 2020 with Camille and hear what it has been like training in New Zealand through the pandemic. We also talk a bit about the Doha World Championships – a meet where it all came together for Camille as she ran 2 PR's in the 5,000m and another one in the 10,000m. Camille talks about the approach that helped her perform so well in Doha and it contains valuable lessons for runners of all abilities. Finally, we get some insight into what summer holds for Camille – starting with a 5000m race in late December and then heading into the early part of 2021.LinksWatch Running Things on YouTubeCamille Buscomb on InstagramCamille Buscomb’s websiteCamille Buscomb Doha 5000m finalCamille Buscomb Doha 10000m finalRiley Wolff on InstagramTempo Journal on Instagramtempojournal.com

    Summer preview with Sean Whipp

    1:04:10

    We’re rolling out a massive summer preview today on Running Things with one of the finest athletics minds in Australia: Sean Whipp. Sean joins us to run through all the must-see events on the calendar over the next couple of months – there’s a stack of events in Australia and a few notable races overseas. The first of which is the Valencia Marathon to be held on December 6th – race organisers have put together stellar fields in all races – men’s and women’s marathons and half marathons.Sean also educates us on the ekiden season in Japan – Aussie Melissa Duncan is racing the Queen’s Ekiden this weekend, and we cast an eye forward to the famous Hakone Ekiden taking place in early January.Locally, there’s plenty happening. Riley and Sean talk about the upcoming Launceston Running Festival, which features a 10k and a half marathon – historically we’ve seen deep elite fields at the Launceston 10 and this year is shaping up as no exception. Late December sees the Albie Thomas Mile taking place up in NSW, and the year is closed out locally wih the Christmas Carnivals back down in Tasmania.The big one in January is of course the rescheduled Zatopek:10 on 26 January – likely with an expanded schedule to include more support races in a summer where our athletes may well be starved of racing opportunities. We go through all of that and much more on an episode that we hope gets you excited for the next couple of months of racing in Australia and abroad.

    This is the moment with Jaryd Clifford

    41:14

    Riley is joined on the show today by Paralympic star Jaryd Clifford. Jaryd competes in the T12 (vision impaired) classification in the 1500m and 5000m – where he is the world champion in both (oh, and he holds the world record in the 1500m). Jaryd chats with us from Canberra, where he relocated as lockdowns came into effect in Melbourne in July. In Canberra Jaryd has the opportunity to train with his coach, Dr Philo Saunders and his squad – including his guide Tim Logan. The athlete-guide relationship is critically important to Jaryd, and he speaks at length about the elements that have to go right for the partnership to work – in a race the athlete and guide are connected by a 30cm long tether – which is a lot shorter than it sounds!Jaryd also talks about his plans for 2021 and beyond – including a potential 1500m, 5000m, and marathon triple in the 2024 games. Mind blowing.

    That bit closer with Stewart McSweyn

    31:08

    In an absolute treat for the show, we have legitimate superstar of Australian athletics Stewy McSweyn joining us this week. Stewy is coming to us from his hotel quarantine in Brisbane, where he has had a chance to (finally) reflect on an incredible season in Europe – a season where he broke the long held Australian 1500m record in the Doha Diamond League (his first Diamond League win). Stewy also broke the Aussie record in the 3,000m, to go with his 10,000m national record from December 2019.The biggest takeaway for Stewy from this season was confidence that he can compete on the world stage, and the knowledge that he has made another significant improvement from where he was in 2019 – and he says that’s the key for 2021 as well, to find another 10% improvement in his development. Stewy also says he doesn’t necessarily have a preferred distance to race – his preference is whatever he’s doing best in – something that changes throughout the season. He credits his Melbourne Track Club team for helping him develop that range from the 1,500m to the 10,000m – the squad has talented athletes at all distances, meaning Stewy can always be pushed and tested in training. Finally, we get a bit of a look into Stewy’s plans for the summer – including potentially opening up his season at the Christmas Carnivals in Tasmania.LinksWatch Running Things on YouTubeStewy McSweyn InstagramStewy McSweyn’s 1,500m win in DohaRiley Wolff on InstagramTempo Journal on Instagramtempojournal.com

    Waiting for the green light with Jess Stenson

    33:43

    This episode of Running Things we chat with one of Australia’s most accomplished distance runners: the incredible Jess Stenson. Jess is based in Adelaide as part of Team Tempo, under the tutelage of Adam Didyk. Jess has been to two Olympics, competing in the marathon. We talk about Jess’s return to competition in 2020 after giving birth to her first child, a son named Billy, in late 2019. Jess has been racing in Adelaide for the last few months across cross country, a 10k road race, and a recent half marathon victory. Jess talks about the road back to training and racing from having her son, and where she went for advice.Of particular interest is Jess’s marathon PB – 2:25:59 set in the Toronto Marathon in late 2018. Jess ran this race in a traditional racing shoe – without a carbon plate. With the indisputable benefit marathoners are now seeing in carbon shoes, how does Jess’ PR stack up in ‘modern times’?Jess also talks about trying to make her third Olympics team and her plans to race a marathon in the first half of 2021.LinksWatch Running Things on YouTubeJess Stenson InstagramTeam Tempo InstagramJess Stenson’s websiteRiley Wolff on InstagramTempo Journal on Instagramtempojournal.com

    Sunday roast with Jess Hull

    43:08

    Jess Hull joins the show from hotel quarantine in Sydney’s Darling Harbour. Jess is fresh back in Australia after an incredible 2020 season that saw her break three national records – she now holds the 1500m, 3000m, and 5000m national records at the age of just 23.Jess reviews her 2020 season and gives herself a harsh B+ grade for the year. She speaks about the adjustment from college athlete to professional, and pays tribute to her teammates for helping her settle so easily into the professional lifestyle - in particular Jess has learned a lot from Shannon Rowbury. Speaking of her team, Jess says the main reason she signed with Pete Julian’s group at Nike was because of athletes like Konstanze Klosterhalfen – athletes who could challenge and drop Jess in workouts. Jess also talks about her plans for the summer and the reason she’s back in Australia for a couple of months.LinksWatch Running Things on YouTubeJess Hull on InstagramJess Hull 5000m NRRiley Wolff on InstagramTempo Journal on Instagramtempojournal.com
