I started running back in 2004 (or was it 2003?). I started exactly how I now recommend runners should start. With a simple programme where for the first week you run 1 minute, walk 1 minute x 10. Strangely my memories of this was doing it in the dark and I had no idea […]
The start of the triathlon season has taught me the act of being patient. Reflecting on last year I often found myself constantly low of energy because I started the season too soon after I had run a marathon and there were a lot of things going on in my life. I therefore decided to […]

What is the taper and […]
I have a real interest in the psychology of pain and have written a couple of blogs about it (check them out here and here). Last week I had my own brush with pain psychology that I want to share with you.
At the time I was 6 weeks out from running the Boston marathon and […]
It wasn’t my intention to write a specific blog on the Schoorl Half marathon. However, I was so pleased about how it went that I thought it deserved its own spot in my blog.
This race was planned in the agenda quite a few months ago. Because I had only done a few weeks of […]
Earlier this month Boston Marathon were showing on Facebook and Instagram that they had already painted the finish line. At the moment I don’t feel the finish line is quite in sight. But training is definitely going well and has included a cross country.
