Reflections on a short break in France.

21st May, 2017

21st May 2017 – I’m flying back to the UK today after a short break cycling in France. The trip has been exactly what I needed and a massive departure from the last time I went cycling with this group back in September 2016 last year. The nice thing has been that everybody has noticed the

Saturday 18th March 2017 – I’ve a fun packed run planned today down in the countryside and have one of my best friends for company. We are picking off part of the Clarendon Marathon route that runs between Winchester and Salisbury. The aim is to come back later in the summer and run the whole

Tuesday 14th March 2017 – I’m back in London today. I’ve woken a lot less agitated than yesterday and the buzz of the ‘Beautiful Capital City’ is an antidote to my mood. With 7 Billion people on this planet I know my life shouldn’t be defined by the behavior of 1 or 2 and the

You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone!

7th Mar, 2017

Tuesday 7th March 2017 – I came across some words of wisdom today that encapsulate exactly the way I am feeling at the moment ‘ People say you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. Truth is, I knew what I had, I just never thought I’d lose it!’ This is exactly how I’m feeling today.

Long running mind tricks!

3rd Mar, 2017

Friday 3rd March 2017 – This morning is a rather wet and windy morning but a great chance to get out and clock up some good run mileage with an early lap of the local park. As I slowly come out the other side of the cold that has plagued my winter. I’m itching to start

Long Run to Work

28th Feb, 2017

Tuesday 28th February 2017 – Today I’m up and on it early. I need to be on a conference call at 8am this morning so tight timescales ensures there is no chance for anything other than tipping out of bed and starting my run in to work if I am going to get there on time.

In The Long Run

18th Feb, 2017

18th February 2017 – A lovely sunny day is a welcome view out of the window for a day where I have planned a long run across the hills with my friend. We pick a route across National Trust land, a really nice loop of about 13 miles. My body isn’t in great shape at the

The great thing about running at night.

17th Jan, 2017

17th December 2017 – Today has been a day of meetings. But the highlight of the day is my run under the stars from the office to a dinner with the company President. The temperature has dropped right down today and I make the point of wearing shorts to feel the chill on my legs. Even

A good guy

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

A little something for my Dad brings a smile to my face.

8th Jan, 2017

7th January 2017 – There is a tranquil calm about waking up in the countryside. I’ve grown used to the urban noises but when the only sound you can hear is the rain hitting the window there is real peace to be found. I do still find it incredibly strange with no wife or child to wake
