DOGS LOVE TO RUN TOO!

Dogs love to run fast and slow, here and there and anywhere. They also like to sniff anything of interest, what other dogs have been up to, who visited that tree or post, and what might be in that packet that someone has tossed from the car after a visit to the fast food outlet. So you see, to successfully run with a dog you need to relax, have patience and be prepared to train your dog to run by your side on or off the lead. If you are the type of person who finds it stressful, and is...

How CRAZY was THAT!

You know those times, when you do something that’s way outside your comfort zone, and when you have finished it you think that was insane, I must be nuts, but there was something  inside your head that said you need to do this, so you did. The reason I am writing this is I just had an experience last evening that fell into the crazy category. This had me reflecting on my past running, and I realised that many of the best memories that we have, are not just about the things we accomplished, but they include the ones where we were actually sometimes in survival...

Changing the FOCUS. The Need to Transition.

When did you first become a runner, in your teens, maybe your 20s or even your 40s? At the time age was irrelevant, because you were new to the sport and excited by your progress, first came the fitness, then the muscles got stronger followed by an increase in speed and the ability to maintain this for a reasonable distance. This was when things got serious, and the focus was on getting faster over your chosen distances, and for several years this happened, as you enjoyed the excitement of racing against others and endeavouring to improve your position in the pack. This improvement in...

Nothing is ever achieved being NORMAL.

Let’s think about this, how many of the great achievements in the World have been produced by someone who was considered to be just a normal sort of person? Not many I would think.  So now when you are returning home from an early morning run, at 5.30 – 6.00 am and you meet your sleepy eyed neighbour, who has just got out of bed really early to get his bin out for collection and when in reply to his curiosity you point to the local hill and explain that you’ve just run to the top and back, do not be surprised if...
