Show Notes

Join endurance athletes Smurf & Smurfette and their special guests as they talk through all things endurance sport, whether it be training, nutrition, balance, equipment, racing and much much more!

On this week's podcast, Smurf & Smurfette talk with sub-elite track, road and cross country runner Aidan Hobbs. Aidan is a podiatrist by trade and the Business Lead for not for profit organisation CheckUp. He is also currently completing his Phd while balancing up to 100 miles of running every week. Add to this being a family man with his wife and two kids, Aidan balances a lot while still achieving success. This success includes an 8:50:22 and a 6th place for the 3000m steeplechase at the most recent National Track and Field Championships!
We talk with Aidan about;

  • How he balances his many commitments, yet still achieves significant success in a range of fields
  • How he got involved in running and stories from his running during childhood
  • Running on the track against men up to 15 years younger than him and how he keeps up
  • What a typical training week looks like
  • Aidan's nutrition and recovery week to week
  • Keeping engaged with his family while balancing his many commitments
  • Life lessons from running
