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!

Pushing the boundaries

This year being the year of no women for me, I've now decided to do something completely out of character (or to help mould a new character) each week going forward. 
This week I've enrolled at a boxing gym and am quite excited - while a bit nervous as I contemplate my first bout in the coming months. My ab strength will have to improve dramatically but this can only be good as it will improve my running and swimming in having a stronger core and also to absorb the body blows. 

It's not like it's a world title fight or anything like that, but still it's little things that help to push me out of my comfort zone and assist in the hardening process with the flow on effect of hopefully some six pack development and stronger running and swimming.

All of this can only be good in the long run and get me experiencing things I haven't done in the past. I'd be interested in hearing what others are doing to extend their comfort zones.

Change, growth and running angry!

February already - where has time gone! 

2015 is a year of change and growth. Just because people say they care about one doesn't always mean it's true. I'm truly tired of dishonesty, flakiness and people telling lies when I'm just played for a mug all the time. 
A friend shared the following wisdom with me -'Sam you're the kind of bloke that others walk all over before they get to their destination.' Fair call - hand on heart I'm soft, but in running, training and life I'm hardening. This year is a year of no women - they have just brought trouble to me and so I'm ignoring them and focusing on getting harder and stronger in life and running!
