The past week has been a little turbulent. It has been a week of feeling vulnerable, after sharing my feelings on here and sharing a little of myself in the support of others.

A walk up Snowdon
Last weekend , I met up with a few of my old school friends, and we went for a walk up Snowdon, as you do! Now normally we meet up in a pub in Chester, have a meal, reminisce and get hammered. Not all of us manage to get to these sessions and even whenContinue reading “A walk up Snowdon”
Painful Heel, no running, play acting and living the dream
Last Sunday, it felt like I had broken something in my foot (I am a big baby when it comes to pain)! It turns out after much drama, involving me limping around the house moaning and whinging that I have plantar fasciitis (inflammation of the plantar fascia, which I think is tendon on the bottomContinue reading “Painful Heel, no running, play acting and living the dream”
Do we put ourselves in pigeon holes?
I was reading a blog this morning that what prevents us from making lasting changes to our lives is the assumptions we make about ourselves and how we should think and behaved.

Restorative powers of exercise
Since completing the 50km challenge in Movember I have done very little exercise. I have noticed that this has had a detrimental effect on my mental health. My resilience had been much reduced.

A brief look back at 2017 then full speed into 2018
New Year’s Day is a reflective day. Normally down to the over indulgence of the night before. I was a good boy this year and only had a few drinks, in front of the telly. Saying that I went for a run this morning and still felt the effects of a week of over eatingContinue reading “A brief look back at 2017 then full speed into 2018”
What does coaching offer?
Before I trained to be a coach I had no idea what a coach was outside of sports coaching. I am not surprised then that most people really don’t have a clue what coaching really is. As I have coached more and more I find it easier to articulate what coaching is, and what itContinue reading “What does coaching offer?”
Do you get your excuses in early
Before I gave up smoking, I used to tell myself I had an addictive personality, that is why I can't give up.Does that sound familiar, in fact I heard it today. It is just an excuse, because we don't believe we can achieve.The person today is incredibly talented, intelligent, professional and driven, but they areContinue reading “Do you get your excuses in early”
