Naked Training (well on the feet at least)

So I am mixing things up with my training including a weekly crossfit class with my buddy Sharif (

It is a great class which really pushes me – mainly because he is interested in technique not how quickly I get through it...which is a real challenge
The other challenge for me is the time.


Saturday Mornings

In a park about 10k’s from my place. Now in case you have not been keeping up I am pretty unorganised guy.

I am the kind of person who will turn up to the pool without a towel or swimmers (but will not forget my goggles – this is not a lie it happened to me the other day). So this Saturday I woke up at 6:40 with 20mintes to get dressed and get to the park

Luckily I got to the park bang on 7. As I was putting on my socks I realised something was missing



I had two choices

Go barefoot or go home

So I went barefoot. Of course Sharif decided to make me so a heap of sprints. Luckily I manage to avoid anything to dramatic and complete the session – although my feet are pretty cut up

The moral to the story for me is not about my preparation (or lack of) but making the best of every situation

I am off to put some more band aids on my feet.....

The Brisbane Floods

Hi All,

What a crazy, scary week. In case you missed it Brisbane, my new home town, has been subject to floods.

Thankfully whilst our place is still without power we did not suffer any water damage. My family and I we due to head back to Sydney on Friday - we were able to get back just before the floods really hit.

Not wanting to overstate it but Brisbane, like most of Queensland, has been devastated. You might have seen the images of that walkway floating down the river - that was around 300 mtrs from our place

This was the day before the flood

And this is during the flood

All at the end of our street - scary stuff.

Please donate what ever you can and help the people who were not as lucky as my family

Is it good for you?

So i have started running whilst pushing my son in his pram - a total weight of around 25 kilo's

This morning was a good un...we even managed to overtake some people (at which point my son waves bye bye to the people - talk about rubbing it in!)

My question is...considering my brittle running with a pram a wise option?

I guess time will tell!
