​​It's been hot lately. Very hot. A normally easy-ish ten mile train run yesterday turned into a sodden-shirted slog as I stumbled towards Henley seeing mirages of cool oases.

Of course, according to 'conventional' wisdom the moment I felt thirsty it was 'too late'. I w...

We did it. 

 

Between June 5th and June 8th, Movement Clinic coaches Gavin Maitland-Smith and Robby Elson led three previously novice runners approximately 104-miles along the length of the Cotswold Way.

 

It was an immense achievement by Katherine Wood, Franklin Bingham a...

A little over a week ago, around 15,000 people ran the Reading Half-Marathon. I wonder how many spent last week walking like John Wayne, shuffling down the stairs on their bums and using the disabled toilets at work?

 

And how many have been for a run since? How many, h...

1. This is number one because it is absolutely the most important, and universally the most ignored.

 

Don’t eat, wear or do anything on race day you’ve not done in training.

It's been too long since our last blog post. Apologies.

 

Since we're right in the middle of the running season, when people are preparing for 10ks, half-marathons, marathons (or even ultras, in the case of our 100 Mile Move More Team), I'd been planning on giving you my...

How to run an ultra-marathon? Puff out your chest, put one foot in front of the other and don't stop till you cross the finish line.’ – Dean Karnazes

 

I was thirty five years old, tipping the scales at 19-stone and physically washed up. I'd always been sporty. I had p...

So, it’s the middle of January already. Did you make a New Year’s resolution? Have you broken it yet? If not, you’re in the minority.

 

You don’t need to see the cupboards full of research papers on New Year’s resolutions to know that they invariably fail; we’ve all been...

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

A time when it’s acceptable to eat chocolates for breakfast, spoonfeed yourself a mixture of butter, sugar and brandy straight from the bowl, and pickle yourself in your alcoholic poison of choice. All from the comfort of the so...

Last week I met a young man who wants to become an officer in the British military.

We were meeting because officer selection requires a pretty rigorous fitness test.

 

When I quizzed him about the tests, how many press ups he’d have to complete in two minutes and how fas...

I have a lovely client (actually, all my clients are lovely… I won't work with unlovely people) who refuses to be told how long she has to work in each exercise interval.

 

I’ve tried telling her. She puts her fingers in her ears and sings ‘la la la!’ And then, set over,...
