Uncover your inner athlete!

Every morning in Africa a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be eaten.. Each morning in Africa a lion awakes - it knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle or it will starve.

No matter if you are the lion or the gazelle, when the sun comes up you had better be running!

Chilling out and attaining results

This weekend a good friend asked me why I haven't been blogging in so long. To be honest I hadn't thought that anyone was reading what I was writing, but I also put down my blog after returning from Europe in May. Well it seems I was wrong and that people are actually reading this. 

As part of my comeback blog I want to focus on attaining success through not taking things so seriously in running. 

All to often we hear about focus and athletes having to 'get into the zone' . But what if success can be attained through not taking things seriously at all? My experience having returned from Europe was to really just relax when participating and not actually pay much heed to things in events that followed. 

This tactic which some may find as unconventional has resulted in me attaining PBs in all 5,8,10k and half marathon this year all coming while winding back training and taking things easier. This approach may not work for all but I'm sure it's what is assisting me at present.
