LetsRun.com's Track Talk
Your weekly running and track and field fix

Aussie Globe Trotting, Mile/3k/5k Star Stewart McSweyn (Guest)

2 months ago

Last week did a live video talk with Aussie miler, 3k, 5k star, Stewy McSweyn, as he entered quarantine. He's still locked in his quarantine and it's out now as a podcast.

McSweyn recounts his great 2021 year, his globetrotting ways, discusses who is the GOAT of Australian distance running, what country is best in the 4x mile, and what his relationships is with his rivals Jakob Ingebrigtsen and Timonty Cheruiyot.

Last chance to save 10% on AirWaav Performance Mouth Piece (Ad) The AIRWAAV Performance Mouthpiece is a relatively new training tool that launched late in 2020 after nearly 16 years of research. The AIRWAAV performance mouthpiece fits along your bottom teeth and pushes your jaw just forward enough to create the “optimal airway opening,” resulting in:

  • Increased endurance — by reducing respiratory rate by 20%, resulting in less lactic acid production
  • Increased strength — by improving muscular endurance
  • Faster recovery times — by reducing cortisol build-up by up to 50%
