One week in

Elbow is playing on the HiFi and I’m sitting on the apartment balcony watching lightning over Lake Ontario. The video doesn’t do it justice. It’s quite something to watch. So I’ve been in Canada for a week now, and apart from missing my family I’ve really enjoyed myself. I’ve met old friends, made some new […]

Catch up

According to the screen in front of me, I’m currently travelling at a speed of 508mph at an altitude of 34000 feet and I’m approaching the halfway point of my flight from London to Toronto. I’m on my way to Canada where I’ll be staying for seven weeks on a work secondment. Truth be told […]

August training

Fri 2nd August Last day in LA.  Woke up and performed the normal resets. Went to the park near the apartment and did spider-man crawls along the length of the play area. These are on sand so pretty tough. Followed by 5 chin ups. Did these as a superset 4 times. Finished off by holding […]

Another reason to eat chocolate

I’ve realised something about myself over the past few weeks. I can be a bit of an idiot sometimes. Really, I can. I wrote in January that my goal was to not do any pushing or pressing under load so as to help my shoulder heal. I failed. How hard can it be to stop […]

Strength rocks

I’m writing this during my daughters dancing lesson. As I’m watching the teacher take these eight year old girls through their drills I’m struck by how much this is a strength skill practice as much as it is a dance skill practice. This makes sense as it important to be strong and flexible if you […]

Write down the vision

Well it’s January and everyone is busy making resolutions and unfortunately most people will then fail to keep them. One of the problems with resolutions is that they are sometimes too vague (i.e. lose weight, exercise more) and can’t be broken down into achievable steps. Another problem people face is that they don’t know how […]
