Pete Magill (Master Runner/Coach)

Uploading this interview taken form the website "Runnersconnect" Thank you for making it.

Pete Magill is to us Master's runners what Noah was to the animals. But us "animals" must first get on the boat, that is, listened to the advice he so graciously gives away for free. I absolutely love the guy!

  3. Great interview. What you had to say about running as a veteran was a good head's up. I am still a sub-master but seeing that there is no room for error on the training already. Oh, to be 18 again! Nevertheless, glad to be running...

  4. Thanks for your comment Raina! You're right about how much easier it is when young but also as you say great to be running now. We still have many years of running in front of us thanks to a lot of older and faster runners breaking new ground.

    I had a look at your blog, you're fast! How was Boston? I plan to run it in 2015.

  5. Scott, thinking about what Pete said, I reckon there are some good 'take homes' for your own running. How fast are your regular runs? Maybe you could slow them down to 8 minute miles - esp as Pete is happy with 7.30 to 8s and he's racing 15:02 for 5k. The slower running would help you stay injury free. Do two harder sessions per week plus a workout of speed/strength that he talks about and you'd be on your way.

  6. Glad you said that Ewen! Actually wrote that down when he mentioned it and I've been thinking about slowing my average runs down. I don't run anything above 4:30 per K these days. Sounds like I'm making a mistake there.
