Return of the Big Man!

14th Jul, 2017

Friday 14th July 2017 – I’ve taken some time away from ‘Social Media’ this has been for a number of reasons but most importantly it has been a period of time in which I have tried to find myself again. It is a period in which I have needed to detach myself from everything and

The bigger the stuff the harder I need to hit it!

10th Mar, 2017

Friday 10th March 2017 – I’ve got a bit of spring in my step this morning as I reflect on another wonderful evening with my little boy yesterday and despite the chilly start I’m heading in to London on the bike today with a bit more purpose. It is no secret that with the mush that has

When your mind is elsewhere…….

25th Jan, 2017

25th January 2017 – I’ve got an early call with work this morning so I set off on the bike on what is a particularly cold and damp morning. For some reason I’ve got a huge amount of thoughts running through my head this morning. I’m desperate to get back on track with work. But

8th Jan, 2017

8th January 2017 – Waking up to the sounds of Central London is so different to being in the countryside. It is not something I am really very used to but I’d rather be anywhere around friends rather than be on my own at home. Sunday morning exercise is an hour on the Concept 2

12th Dec, 2016

12th December 2016 – I’ve definitely got the ‘Monday Morning Blues’ again today. I’m feeling anxious and uneasy and it is all I can do to claw myself out of bed. I succumb to the familiar battle between the devils in my head of lack of purpose and motivation within my life as it is now VS what

11th December 2016 – Today is another day where I’m trying to fill as many units of time, with good company, as I can. Where previously a Sunday morning on the bike was a bit of time to catch up with friends and get a block of exercise in all in the happy knowledge that

Feeling properly depressed again.

10th Dec, 2016

10th December 2016 – My Friday evening crash in mood carries in to Saturday morning and I start to worry about the long lasting psychological damage of all of this. I wonder if my sleep and my confidence will ever return and I think about what this is also doing to my son? It is the same

Friends Rally – But my mood sinks!

27th Nov, 2016

27th November 2016 – Today is my first Sunday morning bike ride in a long time and will be quite a chunky ride given my current state of fitness. We head out of town to meet friends and a bigger Peloton out to Windsor. The weather is cold but with layers on still quite pleasant. Conversation is good and I realize that the Sunday morning bike ride was always my one, More

Hiding in my own house!

31st Oct, 2016

31st October 2016 – Today was the first day back at work for a while and also Halloween so this was always going to be a tough day without my son or my wife in the house. I woke early and tossed and turned for far too long without properly getting back to sleep. The overriding

21st Oct, 2016

21st  October 2016 – It was a beautiful autumn morning for my cycle in to work again today. I grow more and more grateful for my daily commute and the opportunity it affords me to stay fit and experience the fresh air before I arrive in the office. My first meeting was the AGM, generally
