Rebuilding

I’ve been reflecting on how rebuilding our new house has followed a very similar path to my own rebuilding and acted as a solid lesson in how to go forwards. We love our new house and can’t wait to move into it. When we bought, it the survey came back really encouraging (the surveyor speaking … Continue reading Rebuilding

Great running form

I was lucky enough to see this during the week – a video of Marcell Jacobs JOGGING & Sprinting in Slow-Motion from Tokyo Olympic Games, captured by PJ Vazel. His form is wonderful, from his stance foot landing under his centre of mass (watching him float forwards allowing him to pull back and land his … Continue reading Great running form

Rib Flare

I went down a rabbit hole last week, researching rib flare in runners (or hyper extended ribs) and ended up on a long and interesting journey that took in several books and helped pull together some threads for me, alongside which hopefully has helped developed a deeper understanding around just how key the diaphragm & … Continue reading Rib Flare

Rehabbing my calf

After resting for 2 weeks, when I did eventual get back to running it went straight away – a case of too much too soon, not enough elsewhere, any and all of the above – who knows.
