How To Get Comfortable With The Uncomfortable

Have you noticed how you go about your day to day life, your running, your work, your family, how you interact on a day to day basis with everything and everybody? I reckon, like most people, myself included, each day just rolls into the next one. What I mean by that is that as people […]

Gold Coast Marathon – Wk11 – A World Of Pain

As you know being a runner, getting to the start of a race you’ve been training for is a huge achievement in itself, as being plagued by injuries is a runners nightmare. So today on my long run, a niggly achilles pain came back to haunt me. It was feeling a bit tight on Friday’s […]

Gold Coast Marathon – Wk10 Rain Rain And More Rain

After the excitement of last Sunday’s night Wings For Life Run I was still buzzing by Monday afternoon, although I soon crashed in the evening as a result of running through the night, minimum sleep followed by work the next day.  You can check out all the amazing action from around the world below. So that said, I […]

This week was great to mix it up again. Hills session on Tuesday and Friday I combined my tempo run with a ‘functional training’ session, back with Adam, my PT, in his new studio. I had a lot of fun and it was great to be back doing strength training again. Even though I was […]

Gold Coast Marathon Wk6 – Smashing Up The Hills!!!!!

This week was all about hill training for me. So my ‘sprint session’ was replaced with a circuit of 2 repeats running up a steep hill close to home. Glad I got out of bed for this one on a cold morning, even if it took a lot of mental strength to keep going up […]

Studies Find Sugar Is More Addictive Than Cocaine

Now I know that’s a pretty strong and bold statement, and you might want to disagree and hold onto the fight and protect your beloved chocolate, or favourite dessert. I know I certainly was in this camp. Friends joked that I was a ‘chocaholic’. Absolutely not a shadow of a doubt there, I could quite […]
