The Bare Truth Podcast
'The Bare Truth' is a celebration of the extraordinary in day-to-day living, from the unsung hero to those on a bigger stage. Each week, Julia interviews someone from a different area of interest who is passionate about what they do, who is expressing themselves in their own unique way, and who wants to share what they do with others.
Please feel free to contact Julia with any comments about the show, or if you would like to be interviewed yourself. We also include contact details of our guests where possible - if you'd like more information, why not get in touch?
Running to Learn 45: Cecilia Morrison - world record holder for 1500m and 5000m
18 January 11
Cecilia Morrison is the current W70 world record holder for 1500m and 5000m. She has only been running regularly since the age of 61. She ran to two World Age Records at Cardiff in the 40th British Masters Championships on the 3/4 of July. Cecilia won the W70 1500 in 6:04.59, on the Saturday and 5000m on the Sunday in 22:19.99. Then she went on to the European Masters Championships (15-24 July in Hungary) to win the W70 1500 by a large margin in 6:11.05. Eight days later she broke her own world Record at a League match in Portsmouth, taking off a further 15 seconds to record a time of 22.06.
I really enjoyed talking with Cecilia, discovering how she trains and how she mentally prepares for her races on the track. I was also very interested in the thoroughness of her preparation from the actual running training, to the strength work and the awareness of the importance of nutrition and supplementation. Neovite have supported her for the duration of her track career and she finds that the supplement boosts her immune system and means that she can continue to train year round!
It was inspiring and illuminating hearing how she rises to and embraces the challenges she sets herself and gave me the message loud and clear that having dreams and going for them enriches our lives and we can discover that everything is possible!
