Best Running App

I‘m often asked which running app I’d recommend for training. I’ve been using the free Nike+ app for many years and found it to be very good and I’ve played around with another free app, RunKeeper which is also very good, however I’ve...

Thank you Seiko Australia

On Monday I got an email that read, ‘You have been selected a winner in the SEIKO City2Surf competition!’ What a great way to start the week! I’m not the kind of person that usually wins anything; let alone a great prize like this. This morning a courier knocked at my...
Running for Beginners

Running for Beginners

I titled this page ‘Running for Beginners’ because the training program I outline in my book ‘How to Break Your Fitness Slump and Comfortably Finish a Fun Run’ is designed for people who haven’t done a lot of running training before or for a long time and it is...

Shin Pain Running

In our first or second year of life, we all taught ourselves to walk by trial and error. We also learnt to run by the same method. And unless you were lucky enough to have some running training when you were young, the odds are pretty slim that you taught yourself how...

How Much City2Surf Training Should I Do?

My first book is called: ‘How to Break Your Fitness Slump and Comfortably Finish a Fun Run’ This year I’ll be doing my 43rd City2Surf and over the years I’ve tried many different training programs in the lead up to the City2Surf. Over the last 42 years I’ve perfected...

Happy 80th Birthday Mum

If 60 is the new 40, then I think 80 must be the new 60. My mother is busily working on her new book ‘Mums, Children and Mustard Gas‘ a history of the Blue Mountains during WW2. She started researching this topic five years ago and rarely have my sister or...

Looking back on another year as a Life Coach

As 2012 comes to a close, I find myself browsing through my coaching notes of the many people I have been privileged to meet over the course of 2012. Some of the life experiences that have been shared with me over the last 12 months read like scripts from a sitcom....

Unthinkable Goals
