Listener Question from Peter whether documenting training on YouTube is good for the sport or of any benefit for the athletes training.

Training talk goes into the ins and outs of long tempos and how to apply it into your marathon campaign.

Oli Hoare, 1500m Olympic Finalist and of Coffee Club Podcast fame chats with Brady, during his brief visit to run and win the 1500m Open Title at the 2022 Track and Field National Championships, which was easier than his previous visits home during the pandemic.

Oli recounts the tactics for his first national championships, taking in feedback after World Indoor Championships in Serbia where he finished 5th and taking the victory and enjoying a title in the 1500m. He talks about what it’s like being away from his group the On Athletic Club and managing to keep track of Australian & NCAA results.

Oli then talks about how he got into running with his background in swimming, then pursuing a pathway into University of Wisconsin and performing on the track and in the classroom having teammate Morgan McDonald as a role model.

He recounts the transition to turn pro as the pandemic unfolded the same time his time in Wisconsin finished, then joining On Athletic Club after learning how big a deal Dathan Ritzenheim is and building a brand and culture within the team. Oli talks about how that lead to starting Coffee Club, putting their training and personality on display before going through his list of results, transitioning from a college athlete to a professional and building belief and training. Oli goes into what went into his 5000m Indoor National Record, the nuances of the OAC program then into the selection process and ultimately his experience at the Tokyo Olympics.

This chat rounds out with what Oli reckons is bad for the sport globally and within Australia, how long before he gets an American accent, which of his PBs is his favourite and Tesla ownership.
