Today we spoke with Jan Corcoran – Irish ultra runner, marathon runner and Olympic hopeful
Jan started running marathons in 2015 having hardly run at all before that. She now has completed 50k ultra runs and has ambitions of making the 2024 Olympics representing Ireland.
Along with the miles on-road and the lofty ambitions to be at the Olympics, Jan, known as 'Jantastic' to her friends, works full-time as a money laundering consultant...and manages to balance both worlds.
We talk about Jans' identity piece, her grueling, periodised training schedule, race pace and her recovery practices. Jan tells us how she runs to work from Leixlip to Dublin most days, which is not a little jog, and her introduction to running.
Hope you make it to the Olympics Jan, from the two of us here!
