Recently I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to meet a running legend – John Treacy, AKA The Mudlark. It was a huge honour to meet him and have the opportunity to ask him about a whole host of different things.
Naturally the conversation turned to training and how he prepared when he was racing, especially in the run up to his Olympic marathon silver medal in 1984.
The interview became a piece about the lessons we can learn today from runners of the past and Lessons from the Legends #1: John Treacy, has just appeared in Running Fitness magazine. If you get a chance, please get a copy and have a read.
