Motivation!

The benefits of early morning exercise?

Today I was up early and in the gym at 7:30am- probably the first time I have ever trained this early in my life. (I love to sleep for as long as I possibly can!) However, writing this blog @ 10:00am, I do feel happy I committed to the session and feel really fresh, ready […]

Improving Your 10k Time

Once upon a time I used to love running; well, providing I didn’t have to go over 400m I was a happy man. A massive chunk of the training we did was to improve speed and, more importantly, speed endurance. Not many people run track recreationally and the majority run endurance races such as the […]

Using Sport to Raise Money for Good Causes

In 2010 I cycled from London to Paris to raise funds for the Stroke association for my Dad who suffered a stroke in 2009.  I managed £2,500 and had an amazing time completing the challenge and raising the money which I hope has helped some survivors of what I can only describe as a terrifying […]

Taste of the Games

I have been lucky enough to go from accepting and being more than happy to experience London 2012 through a TV screen sat at home, catching up on as many highlights and live events as I could, to being able to witness first-hand the excitement and hype around an Olympics. Saturday 4th of August I […]
