Bruce Fordyce on Marathon Talk podcast

Bruce Fordyce was interviewed by Marathon Talk podcast. He featured in episodes 38 and 39.

Comrades King talks about a wide range of topics, but I found his training system for the world's biggest ultrarunning race Comrades Marathon particularly interesting: he rans a couple of 42.2 km marathons and the 56 km beautiful Two Oceans Marathon as long, slow & easy training races, while gaining fitness and speed from shorter workouts and races.

Mr. Fordyce, who will be 55 year old in December, has finished Comrades 28 times, and counting. His gun time this year was 7:55.
