Steve Jones and Sophie pick up from where they left off last week, seeking redemption after pulling out of the Chicago Marathon in 1983 by returning the next year by breaking Rob De Castella’s World Record while still working full time for the RAF and running the 10 000m in the Los Angeles Olympics along the way.
Steve goes into his “recovery” after that iconic Chicago Marathon, his training philosophy at the time and partnership with coach Bob Wallace before going into the much-hyped 1985 London Marathon where he raced against Charlie Spedding and a dodgy quiche to take out the win in a course-record time.
Steve and Sophie then recount the famous 1985 Chicago Marathon where Steve obliterated the field, breaking both the pacer and out of Deek’s shadow to a comprehensive victory and then witnessing Deek’s best performance at the 1986 Boston Marathon.
Steve then recounts 1987 Boston Marathon where he faced off on a stacked field and the 1988 NYC Marathon where he ran 2:08:20 going into a typical training week of that era.
This great conversation concludes with his role in modern running passing on his coaching philosophy and experiences, what he would change looking back and what he’d relive.
