Neil & Geoff speak to bubbly 5000m superstar & Olympian Jenny Blundell in her first ever podcast interview, they learn how a full time exercise physiologist specialising in stroke & cardiac orthopaedic rehab finds time to qualify for the Olympics during COVID, how the complicated qualification process works & why she qualified even though she missed out by .27 of a second, whether she’ll go sub 15 mins, how many spikes she’ll take to Tokyo, why her body & the brutality of the 1500m pushed her to the 5000m, why her long runs involve 85 mins on a track & why she once rocked up to the start of a race with the taste of a Macca’s cheeseburger in her mouth.
