205: Steve Moneghetti & London Marathon

 

This week’s episode of the Inside Running Podcast is brought to you by PILLAR Performance - Australia’s first clinical sports micronutrition brand. Available now at selected pharmacies including Terry White Chemmart, specialty sports nutrition stores and online at pillarperformance.com.au

 

Julian & Bri welcome Pia Clementine to the world. Brad gets back into sessions with the Telford squad and cruises in a long run. Brady gets his heart rate calibrated along the easy runs.

The London Marathon returned for the masses with its traditional course, Eloise Wellings ran the fastest debut marathon by an Australian woman, running 2:29:42 to place 14th with Sinead Diver 12th in 2:27:16, eight weeks after her 10th place in the Tokyo Olympic Marathon.

Listener question from Dominic asks how to mentally recover and reset from a marathon DNF, then Moose asks the boys what the traits of a good running coach are.

 

Steve Moneghetti is back for another yarn, this time with his performances at the 1989 & 1995 London Marathons. After the debut in the distance in the 1986 Edinburgh Commonwealth Games winning the bronze medal and consistent selection for World Championship races, it was time to see how fast Steve was capable of in the distance.
Steve chats about the allure of getting paid to travel and race at the 1989 London Marathon and taking his physio along for the ride, sharing in some of the misadventures in races during the training campaign.
While highlighting some of the differences between training then and now, Steve enjoyed the low-key setting of Richmond between races, including 4th place at the World Cross Country Championships in Stavanger, Norway and even chipping in to help the organizers of the London Marathon, before the pressure really ramped up in the form of a young Bruce McAvaney, as well as other life circumstances.

Steve shares how he handled that deep field and then recaps the race, including the drama at the drink station at 35k leading into the closing stages of that race and what doors that second place in 2:09:06 meant to him. From there they go to repeating the silver-medal performance in the 1995 edition of the race, bettering his time to 2:08:33 against Dionicio Ceron of Mexico and how the tactics of the race played out into the results, as well as just how many donuts Mona can eat at dessert.

Closing out this conversation Mona gives his thoughts on the change in sports, touches on his current fitness and whether he’d pull on a Ballarat singlet right now, coaching and how he’s staying engaged with the running community during the pandemic.
