Why wait? Get a head start!

Why wait

I’ve seen a few things over the last few weeks stating people saying-

“I can’t wait till the New Year so I can relax/get more sleep/start training/sort my life”

I have thought the exact same thing myself. Things have been fairly hectic recently and putting stuff off until January is a great bit of procrastination. Continue reading “Why wait? Get a head start!”

Gdansk parkrun

My parkrun 50 t-shirt arrived recently.

I opened it in the office at work and intrigued colleagues asked: “What’s that?”

“It’s my parkrun t-shirt to show I’ve completed 50 parkruns” I said.

To which I got the reply – “What’s parkrun?” Continue reading “An Ode to Parkrun – Why it’s so good!”

More Consistent with your Consistency

Windmiler Autumn Quarter - Consistency

I’ve been struggling recently. For one reason or another, I’ve missed a lot of training sessions. I’ve not been eating so well, put some weight on and lost a chunk of fitness. When I do train or run, I go berserk for a few days, then do f*ck all for a week. This has been the cycle of the past month or so. Continue reading “More Consistent with your Consistency”

The Awesome Running Playlist – Track 20

Track 20 – Lola’s Theme – The Shapeshifters (2004)

I started to get a bit precious about this list. The first 10-15 tunes that I love to run to were easy to choose. Then, I would take a look at the long list of tunes that I’ve noted down and think “That’s not hard enough, that’s not fast enough” as if every one of them has to be the perfect running tune.

How to Improve Your Fitness Routine If You’re a Busy-Working Man

This week is a guest post from a fitness and health writer, Peter Minkoff.

Staying fit is not a challenge for all the people who have extremely busy schedules, but for everyone who doesn’t feel like working out, as well. Well, you might be a part of the first group, or perhaps the second one. If you’re a member of the both, then you’re in a bit of trouble.

The Awesome Running Playlist – Track 19

Track 19 – Work – Kelly Rowland (Steve Pitron & Max Sanna Radio Edit) (2008)

Straight in. Not messing. Go hard. This song doesn’t mess around and drops straight in from the off.

This is my 5km playlist final track and I’ve used it successfully to finish “hard”. The beat and the pace of this song gets me flying and gives me so much energy. Continue reading “The Awesome Running Playlist – Track 19”
