The Bad Boy Running Podcast


Running is great, so why aren't the podcasts? Bad Boy Running is a podcast for runners (boys AND girls!) who are bored of the dull and dry podcasts currently on offer. Hosted by friends Jody Raynsford and David Hellard, both running journalists, bloggers and lovable idiots, the show features the conversations they'd have in the pub focusing as much on the camaraderie and social side of the sport as the technical.

Back by popular demand, 100-mile record holder and race beer aficionado Camille Herron returns to talk about the records she's smashed since she was last on the show as well as reveal her secret to her Comrades Marathon success.

Here's what you'll hear on this episode:

  • Camille reveals how she approached her latest three record-breaking races
  • Why Comrades was such an important race for Camille (and the book she read at 13 that inspired her love of running)
  • How Camille explains how she trains for hills... when you don't have any hills
  • How Camille almost didn't finish Comrades even though she was metres from the end (mistaken for celebrating too early!)
  • Advice from Camille on why you don't need books to improve your running (you just need to follow this one simple rule)
  • Camille reveals the exact amount of nutrition you need for an ultra that made the biggest difference to her running
  • Why she never does back-to-back long runs, despite doing weekend mileage of 40-50 miles (here's how)
  • Why Camille trains 90% on the road to improve her trail running
  • The Total Do-Badder method of race recovery that Camille adheres to

As you'd expect, it's another great interview from Camille with plenty to learn and be inspired from.

That's doesn't apply to the intro and analysis from Jody and David which runs the gamut from catching up on running (or lack of) and  

If you want to skip straight to the Camille interview, The Silk Cut on this episode is around 42 minutes.
