According to her website, Carla Molinaro is a record breaking ultra runner, adventurer and running coach who seeks out events that are slightly harder than the average... and she isn't wrong. Among other insane runs, she set the ladies world record for running from Lands End to John O'Groats (otherwise known as LEJOG) in an astonishing 12 days and 30 minutes.
Having grown up in South Africa, Carla also has a fond spot for the famous 90km ultra Comrades, so decided she would run 90km a day from Cape Town to Comrades as a warm up, completing the 90km race on the 20th and final day... and finishing in the top 10! So I wanted to chat to Carla about her new strength and conditioning coaching, how yoga can help ultra-runners and about the ultra-running bucket list.
