- Do you prefer running solo or with a running buddy and why?
To be honest I love both! Running with a buddy keeps you accountable and can push you a little bit more! Plus it’s always nice to have a chat with someone throughout and grab a coffee/hang out at the end. Running solo you can be completely in your own headspace, blast the music/podcast and decide along the way how far you will go! Getting out solo I feel an even bigger sense of achievement.
- Have you participated in the Bridge to Brisbane before or is this your first time?
I haven’t! This will be my first time which makes it even more exciting and special.
- Do you have any goals in mind?
I would love to run a sub 60 minute race. My PB is 53 minutes so even if I matched that or got close I would be stoked! Also get as many people as possible on board for The Sunday Mail Transurban Bridge to Brisbane!
- How are you getting ready for Race Day? Any training tips to share?
I’m adding in 2 runs a week to my training routine. One will be a shorter run (3-5km) and the other will be a longer run (10km). I will change it up with interval, low heart rate and faster paced runs. I’m no expert but the biggest tip I can share is run at a talking pace and forget about the pace you are doing! Just run, enjoy it and don’t put pressure on yourself! I trained for a 1/2 Marathon in 6 weeks and focused on these tips and it worked an absolute treat!
- What are you most excited about for this year’s Event?
I’m so pumped that it will be my first time running this track! I can’t wait to get amongst the crowd, soak up the warm Brissy weather and just have fun!! Countdown is on!
