Episode notes

Hey everyone, we're back! This season, powered by Nike, we're homing in on all things running. You can expect tips and tactics from Nike run coaches to build or elevate your own running practice, whatever your level. Plus, powerful stories from extraordinary women - some familiar, some not so - guaranteed to spark your motivation this back-to-school season.

In today's episode, Roisín is joined by journalist and author Ella Dove. Ella lost her lower right leg in a freak accident, aged just 25. The word ‘inspirational’ is seriously overused, but if any adjective characterises her journey since that day, it’s exactly that. Whatever your personal barrier to getting what you want out of your body, mind and life right now, you might just perceive it a little differently after listening to her story.

In today's Coaching Clinic, Ella is joined by Nike Run Coach and top physiotherapist Manni Ovola. He arms her with the tools she needs to really go for her own running goals: to run more evenly and break through the 5k barrier.
