Standing on the start line of the 2020 @athswest state XC Championships it poured down with rain 🌧 I had absolutely no clue what I was getting myself into as we set up the first hill of the 3km loop course that we ran just over 3 times. This was my first XC race since 2007 and boy did I get the real experience today! 1km up hill on grass and 2km on a sandy trail 🏃🏼‍♀️ 1 lap in my feet were on fire🔥 2 laps in I was gasping for a drink. By the last last all I was doing was putting one foot in front of the other and surviving. Proud of myself for sticking it out, as a marathon runner you get so used to pounding the pavement 🏃🏼‍♀️Thanks Coach (@adamdidyk ) for the challenge 😝 . Thank you so much @megan.bell05 and @chelle.72 for the support on course today!! . #xc #runner #fitnessjourney #fitness #motivation #training #workout #crosscountryrunning #perthfitness #perthfitfam #fitspo #run #healthylifestyle #sundayvibes #followme #instadaily #instarunners #worldrunners #influencer #happiness #livingthedream #fitperthlife #tempo #gettingitdone #workworkwork #asicsrunning

Listener question asks what the next Australian record to fall will be and Moose on the Loose for the millionth time reiterates how it’s not all about the shoes.

Jess Hull joins friend of the show Matt Whitbread, coming straight off her amazing run setting the national new 5000m Australian record of 14:43.80, going into her preparations into the race and plans coming.

Jess takes us back to the preparations for winning her maiden National 5000m Championship back in March, where her headspace and goal setting are at, why she still has her sights on her 1500m, before going into how she responded when COVID-19 changed the world, where she based herself at the time, navigating isolation rules after travelling and adapting her training and mentality. She goes into the process that she and coach Pete Julian went into building her base in response to Tokyo getting postponed, then having Monaco on the horizon and embracing the opportunity to race the 3000m at Bankstown despite the torrid weather.

Leaving Australia on a high, they talked about setting the expectations for Monaco, defining the time to aim for and having squad teammate Shannon Rowbury for support before going into a blow-by-blow recap of the race itself. Post-race Jess goes into how she processed such a moment and reflects on what it means for her now within the Australian running landscape, closing into what happened on her long run with Paula Radcliffe and the plans moving forward for the next few months ahead.
