Week 16 update! Remember, you love running and running loves you. Running is creativity and it comes with its own energy & prescence. Think about what skills or individuality you bring to running & know that it appreciates everything you do for it.

I've been a bit busy since Sunday, but here's a Half Marathon Update & a montage of some of my early morning runs since January. I go full hippie in this video! Sorry about that.

Hey there. I've only ever had a tangerine or some sweets on my longer runs. Eat and Run by Scott Jurek has some great recipes and ideas for what to eat on longer runs. I'm pretty sure he eats falafel and wraps at one point. Crazy! You tried chia seeds before you run? They're good

It's amazing who you bump into on your morning run. I did an easy 10km and then 10 x 100m strides with & scrum half . I'm here to motivate everyone!

Thank you very much! I just can't believe I didn't run like this for so many years.

I heard a man in Llanelli Wetherspoons last night blaming the Notre Dame fire on the IRA, and then say "this is why we need to leave Europe." He was wearing a suit with white socks.

We're the same but with Australia. Odd.

Week 16! I took a day off yesterday to rest my calf. No biggie, it was just a bit sore after the half marathon. Back on it this morning with an easy 50 minutes at 6am. Look in amazement as I discuss swans and the benefits of slow running.

Umm. Mate. They're called clouds. "Better not go outside today. Looks like it might rain. Flying water tankers everywhere."

On new years eve 2018 I realised I needed to do something about my health. I was all over the place mentally & physically I felt much older than 36. I decided to start running again. 15 weeks later, I've lost 3 stone & yesterday I ran a half marathon PB of 1.24.

Whatever you do...only buy neutral trainers and work on your technique.
