I’ve had this on my mind recently – in terms of two questions I was asked, one recently taking me back in a circular fashion to another, I was asked a few months ago. Both have this principle (coaching – why?) central to underpinning the question asked and so I thought it was a good … Continue reading Coaching – why?
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. What then followed was a full day of incredible frustration and grumpiness (which I decided to sit with … Continue reading Rehabbing my calf
I’ve hit a snag / bump in the road in my training – quite a large one that has left me cancelling 4 races (a 10k, 2 mile races and the Snowdon 40K) with a potential fifth being left alone as well (the Hackney half). I’ve spent the last 2 years working with the excellent … Continue reading My body needs more time, unpeeling onion layers.
I’ve just finished both of above – and both excellent books in the topics that they cover.

Key to this would be managing my load, getting rest in, strengthening my body and taking things … Continue reading Nepal / London – First 4 weeks done & a good start

The basic stats around which are: 10 days for a total of 192km, 12,170m of ascent, 10,994m of descent. Working out at an average of 21k a day, … Continue reading Getting from here to there
I’ve had a productive few weeks, since the turn of the year. Time has flown by and whilst I wonder where it has gone, I’ve been pleased with how I’ve filled my time. In no particular order of the things that I’ve learnt, done, enjoyed, been grateful for: Altered Traits (as above) was a very … Continue reading Books, coaching, breathing, running, learning.

Favourite place to run The Peak District National Park has some fabulous routes both flat trails and hills and fields and everything in between. Kinder Scout and … Continue reading I am a Runner – Adam
2022 and time to start what I’ve been planning and working towards for the last 3 years. The above picture is a perfect representation of what I want to achieve, coaching people from something less organised to one of calmness and clearer direction. I’m starting a monthly coaching subscription service – BtM, with a focus … Continue reading BtM – Join and grow.
