Relapse?

For any physically active person who has formerly been sedentary, relapse is a threat that is always lurking just around every corner, but how do you know if you're slipping into it ? And how do you save yourself from its clutches ? Well, occasional tem...

This Wasn't The Plan........

And with the sun being as warm and bright as it was when I got home tonight , it feels like an evening wasted really . Truthfully, I should have been running. I didn't get to do it yesterday. Yesterday was largely dedicated to some heavy groundwork - tr...

Following in the old man's fo...

Who knows? Maybe she will. My little girl, Phoebe, took part in her 2nd Bramhall parkrun this morning. She asked me a while ago now if she could go again, and she has been itching for this day to come. She is getting into her running it seems. One of he...

When The Going Gets Tough - T...

Just the same as everybody else does. The dull pain doesn't stop the tough though. It is in a sense, no different to the view, the weather, the clothes on your back. It's just there. It's just a fact. It changes nothing. You just get on with it. Today, ...

It's On!!!!!!!

No, not London, but I've already covered that yesterday. The new career is on . This came in the post today: Now I can get my insurance sorted, REPs registration upgraded, get out there and get me some work within the fitness industry, and start workin...

Am I Bovvered.....?

Well no, not really. I won't be running London in April, but it's OK, I've been lucky enough to have the opportunity of doing it twice already . I have a nice white jacket that will come in useful over the winter months I'm sure (even if the cuffs are f...

And It's All Just A Little Bi...

Ok perhaps not repeating, although, in a sense, a person collects a baton, passes it on, next one collects....... Yeah, it is repeating .  Not every day you get to be a history maker though. I had my turn tonight. Barry the Baton set off back in May fro...

HOLY S#!T !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK, now, I am nervous. Now, everything suddenly looks a little bit scary. Now, I have to get my **** in gear and make my efforts thus far really count. I AM a Personal Trainer! Yep, I've done it. My results have come through and I've passed my case stud...

Photo's Are Here....

Felt happy crossing that line, think it's there for all to see:        Not sure if you can pick out my facial expression on the Tyne Bridge though: Think this one must have been just on the turn to the sea front: It's not just the fact this was the ...

Taking stock....

Well with GNR done and dusted it's time to have a quick think about where I'm at, next goal and all that sort of stuff, so, main target (for now): Stretch Every Day. Easy enough eh? You'd think so, but I've not been managing to do it in the way that I s...

It truly is - GREAT!!

The bus from Durham set off early, too early! It was wet too. There was almost 2 hours to kill when we arrived at the start area. It flew by ! Well done to everyone involved, especially the radio guy, he was awesome, and his enthusiasm shone through. Sa...

Volunteering for 2012

Sounds simple enough, but bloody hell ! The application process is that long winded the bloody Olympics will have been and gone by the time I finish filling the form in ! Well, maybe not quite that bad, but I can't progress it any further without tellin...

A Good Weekend.

Yes. That is what it was. A pleasant relaxing morning on Saturday. A good afternoon / early evening with my daughter. A quite comical shopping trip for some drainage pipes with my dad and my brother. A lovely early evening with Phoebe too (discovered my...

Job Done!!

At long last, my PT case study is finished and handed in. Of course being me, things did not go smoothly, "simply attach it to an e-mail marked PTCaseStudy with your name and date of completion, and e-mail to..." they said. Sounds good but the bloody th...

A Hard Slog...

...is the only way to describe this weekend. Been almost the entire weekend trudging through the monotony of writing up 12 weeks worth of Personal Training for my case study. Almost finished now, just afew t's to cross and i's to dot. Thank heavens I ca...

Catching Up

It feels like there is a hell of a lot to catch up on too. There is!! My Personal Trainer case study being the most important thing to catch up on, I've got a week to get the thing written up and handed in, better get busy. Better just get myself in the...
