Alice Springs Masters Games, 10km, Simpsons Gap So yes here is another Blog on Runners Tribe about a distance runner with a running injury. Surprise Surprise; is this DeJaVu? However, this is a little different as I literally had to board a plane, take a minimum 3 days off from...

RT: Nick thanks for your time. In a post Daegu 1500m final video interview you stated you timed your peaking wrong for Daegu. Do you have any more thoughts on what went wrong in Daegu? NW: It was a longer season than I have been used to, but ultimately the...
My 2010/2011 season did not go off with a bang, nor did it end with one. Well I guess in a sense it did start with bang. I went up to Noosa to run the 5k bolt after a fairly solid block of training and feeling quite confident I would...
