One of the things that came out of this conversation with Jake and Zane Robertson is the dangers and frustrations of constantly being compared as identical twin brothers.  So the risk of adding fuel to the fire Jake and Zane Robertson’s PB’s are red-hot. Between them they boast oceanic records as follows: Jake 10km oceanic record 27:28, 10,000m 27:32, half marathon 59:57. Zane oceanic marathon record 2:08:19 and half marathon 59:47 and 10km 27:28.

There’s a lot more to Jake and Zane Robertson than PB’S and that's some of what we delve into on this episode.  

During this episode we cover the early days, training principles, running hills, training failures, training successes periodising training, approaching marathons, training blocks, fuelling for performance and the hard eating questions around pancakes, basketball and Tupac.

Could you imagine running 262.5 miles or 422 KM across 63 hours with no sleep? That is what today's featured performer US Ultra and Marathon acclaimed distance runner Mike Wardian did. But wait there's more, Mike did this around the block whilst under quarantine and Mike termed it the #quarantinebackyardultra.

For example, Mike has been the fastest marathoner ever dressed as Spiderman and Elvis. Mike has also held the fastest 50km treadmill world record set in 2015 of 2 hours and 59 minutes. Mike holds the World Abbott Marathon Majors record for the fastest average time across all six world marathon majors; Tokyo, Boston, London, Berlin, Chicago and New York with an average time of 2:31:09 and most recently Mike picked up the Bronze Medal at the USA Track & Field 50km National Road Championships crossing the line in 3:06:10 which was a US 45 to 49 year old masters record.

Mike Wardian is prolific, he has raced more than 50 times a year.  Last year Mike covered 2591km in competition alone.

On February 29, 2020, Jake Riley stood on the start line of the USA Marathon Olympic trials in Atlanta. This was Jake's third Olympic Games trials and Jake's mantra for the marathon is “no more next time”. Jake stood on that start line, he was 32 years of age and to get to that start line he overcame every setback you could imagine. From prior surgery for a Haglund’s deformity in Achilles tendon through infection, illness, relationship break down, losing sponsors, all experiences that as Runner's World Magazine quoted, “Shouldn't have Jake questioning whether he should continue chasing the Olympic dream.”

He did and he broke through on that day for an historic second place behind Galen Rupp crossing the line in 2 hours, 10 minutes and 2 seconds and securing his ticket to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

During this episode, Jake shares around overcoming surgery, persisting, we play a game of top three’s as Jake shares his Top 3 marathon tips, Top 3 training tips, Top 3 resilience tips before laying down his physical challenge for the week.  This was recorded in the very early days of COVID19 lock-down and uncertainties and I know this is going to inspire and speak to you through these challenging times. Here is my conversation with Jake Riley.
