Successful Masters Running: Interview with Masters World Record Holder Anthony Whiteman
On our show this week is world record holder Anthony Whiteman, who at age 40 last summer ran a 3:58 mile in Nashville, TN to win the professional track meet and become the first man to ever break 4 minutes over the age of 40 in an outdoor mile.
Anthony, who talked to us all the way from Britain, told us exactly how–as a 41 year old–he has continued to run at a high level his entire life.
Here are some of the things we talked about:
Changing a training plan as one ages.
Jumping back in the game after an extended off period.
What it means to be a magpie, rather than a sponge.
- What the “no running” movement really is about.
If you’re ever going to age (which I hope all of us do!), this is a must-listen interview! Let us know what new ideas pop into your head as you listen.
