Eis os excertos (em inglês) mais interessantes sobre a forma como a atleta aborda a corrida. Para ler na integra aqui.Paula Radcliffe: 'I've gone crazy not being able to run'Where is your favourite place to run? I always love running in Central Park [New York]. To be in a beautiful park, but to have the Manhattan skyline just there is pretty special. But I also love Fort Romeu [France], running along some coastal paths, some places in Iten [Kenya]. Basically I have favourite places everywhere I go.When someone asks for a training tip what do you tell them? Make sure you get the right running shoes for you. Get some gait analysis done in a running shop. And don't just run at one pace all the time, but put some fartlek [alternating between fast and slow pace], or hillwork into your schedule. And do some core training as well.What's your favourite running gadget? Hmm. Well a heart-rate monitor is pretty vital, especially when I was pregnant. And the AlterG, an anti-gravity treadmill.Do you ever run to music? Yes, in the gym, but never outside. I prefer to be in tune with my surroundings and to be aware of things. I like listening to my footstrike and my breathing. It can be quite soothing.What's your favourite post-race indulgence? Food of any sort. It varies. It can be anything. Sometimes it's something savoury, like chips or a cheese sandwich, or it could be chocolate, or wine.What is the worst thing about running? Getting injured.What do you eat the morning of a race? A bowl of porridge with banana, honey and chocolate.Do you put the chocolate on the porridge? Sometimes. And I make it with water or rice milk, as I have a lactose intolerance.What's the furthest distance you've ever run? A marathon. Well, a mile warm up and then a marathon, so 27 miles, I guess. I've no desire to do one of those 50-mile races like the Comrades or anything like that.Do you ever run barefoot? Only on the beach. But I do lots of runs in Nike Frees [minimalist running shoes].
