Darryl is back by popular demand! 

This week Haddy discusses the results of his recent KODA Sweat and Hydration test and the implications for his training and race nutrition and hydration with a particular focus on the Gold Coast marathon. Olympic marathoner Milly Clark has been kind enough to share her results so we can compare the Sub-Amateur with the Elite!

We also dive into the physiological factors that make an elite runner and the variation in nutrition and hydration needs across the spectrum of athletes. Darryl outlines the science of glycogen storage, stroke volume and running economy and the implications on goal setting and pacing your next race.

We also shoot across to beautiful Orange where Wolf chats with Scott 'Theon' Hazleton about the newest ultra on the calendar: The Lonely Mountain Ultra, set to kick off in October 2022.

Ep108 - Milly Clark - Rio Olympian & Melbourne Marathon Champion

April 28, 2022

This week Haddy has the pleasure of interviewing Aussie Olympic Marathoner Milly Clark.

We talk about Milly’s Road to Rio and her transformation from a promising junior gymnast to one of Australia’s best ever distance runners. Milly outline’s her early difficulties including a year hampered by stress fractures and how coach Philo Saunders helped her rebuild and restructure leading into a spectacular 2nd place at the 2019 Gold Coast Marathon.

Milly talks about the disappointment of multiple race cancellations during the pandemic and the elation of finally toeing the start line and coming home with the win and a PB (2:26) in last year’s Melbourne Marathon.

Milly has a wonderfully positive attitude to life and running and she speaks openly about the factors that make her such a champion. Milly is supported by Koda Nutrition and we go into detail about her hydration and nutrition strategies for race day and the importance knowing your numbers in terms of sweat rate, sodium concentration in sweat and calorie consumption.

Of course, we cover the big topics such as dominating the Olympic food hall, cartwheeling prowess and a fool-proof recipe for cheesy fries!

Ep106 - Phil Gore - Backyard Ultra King

Ep106 - Phil Gore - Backyard Ultra King

April 6, 2022

On this week's episode Wolf and Haddy have the pleasure of chatting with WA's Ultra Distance King Phil Gore.

From humble beginnings trying to clock 5km a day, Phil has progressed remarkably to the point where he now holds the Australian Record for the Backyard Ultra format at an astonishing 51 hours and almost 350kms! Phil runs for so long that he needs to get his laundry done mid race!!

We discuss the logistics and mindset of an athlete entering his 3rd straight day of running on almost no sleep. We chat about the importance of military precision in the support crew department, the battle between body and brain, and just how annoying the song "Bird is the Word" can get after 50 straight plays.

Phil also details his plan to take on the World Championships and attack the World Record of 86 hours. Hard to imagine.

Wolf and Haddy had the opportunity to sample a couple of Cronulla Brew Co's new experimental brews during the chat. Praise the Dark Ales!

Ep 105 - Simone Brick - The Flying Brick

Ep 105 - Simone Brick - The Flying Brick

March 26, 2022

Simone is one of Australia’s very best trail and mountain runners. Australian Champion and Aussie representative at World Championships, Salomon sponsorship and flying high at the Golden Trail Series in Europe. The Flying Brick has seen the highs of our sport.

It wasn’t always this glamorous for Simone, however, and her road to success has been as rocky as it comes. From the depths of regular hospitalisation for psychosis, anorexia and attempted suicide Simone has courageously rebuilt her life (brick by brick) to the point where she’s found an incredible balance and is truly one of Australia’s best.

Simone shares a great perspective on professionalism, determination and a ‘never say die’ attitude. A seriously inspiring story and a wonderful reminder that anything is possible!

Ep 104 - SRF 50km Champions - Mike Carroll & Juliette Soule

Ep 104 - SRF 50km Champions - Mike Carroll & Juliette Soule

March 13, 2022

We have a bumper Mount Stromlo edition this week as Haddy gets the chance to chat with both of the recent SRF 50km Champions Mike Carroll & Juliette Soule. 

The contrast in their history is stark. Mike was recently crowned the AURA Long Course Australian Champion by winning the Brisbane Trail Ultra 110km while for Juliette this was not only her first trail race but her first race of any kind. The potential is mind boggling!

We recap what was an incredible event down in sunny Canberra and grab some great tips on pacing, mindset and nutrition from the pointy end of the field. 

Two sensational athletes in one episode. What more can you ask for?!

Ep 103 - Nick Bamford - The Road to UTMB

Ep 103 - Nick Bamford - The Road to UTMB

March 9, 2022

Nick Bamford is a man on a mission. Over the past two years he's clocked up an incredibly impressive resume and there are bigger things to come including a tilt at the iconic UTMB and an FKT attempt on the West Mac's Monster (231km's into Alice Springs). 

Blackall 100km Trail Race Oct 2021 (10hrs 17min) - 1st

Brisbane Trail Ultra 100 Mile 2021 (20hrs 5min) - 2nd

Coast to Kosci 240km 2020 (28hrs 58min) - 3rd

Ultra-Trail Australia 100K 2021 - (10hrs 48min) - Top 10

Nick is a self confessed running geek and his insights into meticulous preparation and mind set are truly valuable. He offers great perspective on the idea of 'running happy' and insight into avoiding the dreaded pain cave.

As usual we get stuck into the important topics, like professional tiddlywinks, brewery sponsorship and "taking souls in the night"!

Ep102 - Darryl Griffiths - Koda Nutrition Guru

Ep102 - Darryl Griffiths - Koda Nutrition Guru

March 1, 2022

If you've got a race longer than parkrun coming up then this episode is a must. Your race performance (not to mention your gut) depends on it!

Darryl Griffiths has been studying nutrition/hydration and testing endurance athletes for 25 years. He has literally seen it all and managed to fix the nutrition and hydration problems of some of the world's best athletes. 

This week Haddy has the pleasure of picking Darryl's brain on all things sport's nutrition for the endurance athlete. We particularly drill into the hot ticket items of sodium, fluid and calorie intake. 

We dive into the dangers of getting things wrong and why an all- inclusive 'one size fits all' formula is nowhere hitting the right numbers for you and almost certainly comprising your race goals.

Darryl has recently released the audiobook 'SWEAT. THINK. GO FASTER' and if you follow the processes in this podcast and the book you're almost guaranteed a more successful and enjoyable race day.

We also welcome KODA Nutrition on as a podcast partner. Please use RUNMAT15 at kodanutrition.com for your Running Matters Podcast discount.
