There is always an option to move more

There is always an option to move more

On my recent trip to New York, I knew I would be too busy doing stuff with my family to fit in a run. However, that is no excuse to slack off and so instead of running I made sure to walk instead of hopping […]

Running a 10K

Running a 10K

Running for 30 seconds was beyond me in 2015. Fast forward to 2018 and I have just completed my first 10k race of the year. Now I am not fast by any stretch but I always set out to not walk any part of it. […]

Make friends with apples

Make friends with apples

I am often asked how to stop eating sugar snacks. FATnosis uses many techniques including the Stop, Look, Listen to change mindset but for a very practical solution, try apples. I got used to eating mid morning snacks at school after the introduction of a […]

International No Diet Day

International No Diet Day

Strava

Strava

Including my Parkrun today, I have covered over 25k this week. I don’t have the ideal shape for running but that doesn’t mean I’m not a runner. Never let social norms or your own insecurities stop you from getting out there and having a go. […]

My new favourite post run snack

My new favourite post run snack

Over at Parkrun, I like to enjoy a post run slice of banana cake from the cafe at Ferry Meadows. After my runs back at home, its normally a banana or often just a glass of water. However, every now and than I fancy something […]

Now this BMI chart is much more sensible

Now this BMI chart is much more sensible

I really have no time for the regular BMI charts. The people most likely to refer to them are those who end up stressing over their weight and so turn to diets. Diets which ultimately have them going round in weightloss/weight gain circles. So while […]
