it’s important to embrace this uncertainty at the moment and see it as a chance to give your body a break from the hard training, mix things up and enjoy exercising"
Strength training isn’t easy at the moment if you don’t have the equipment at home but improvisation is great, use something around the house, try some squats carrying your child! For conditioning and mobility, I now do an Ultra Mat Pilates session twice a week with Zero Gravity Pilates. It’s not the same as Pilates you see elsewhere. It’s much more performance focused and great for runners it’s so addictive and very affordable. You could also try PE with Joe, now is the time to take the pressure off of yourself, look after your physical and mental wellbeing and do things for enjoyment. I think you’ll be surprised at how fit and strong you are when training recommences.
Proud to be supporting the Tavistock Athletic Club Members V5. A fab virtual 5k challenge just for TAC members, they'll be running 5k their way, at their pace, and in their own space. It's great to see so many athletes staying active and sticking together throughout this difficult time. Looking for a friendly club to join in 2021? Well then look no further than Tavistock Athletic Club. Formed in 1985, the club has been at the centre of the Tavistock community for over 35 years! A friendly club with an amazing junior section and amazing resources including the 400m athletics track - Check them out HERE
With so much conflicting information out there and outdated advice, I’ve put together these resources to help you make more informed decisions when buying new running shoes. It should make buying running shoes so much easier, more fun and less expensive.
I’ve also written a full and detailed guide along with lots of other running resources.
It’s important to question where the advice is coming from sometimes and who is selling you something. Enjoy everyone and happy running 🙌

Such an honour to have been asked to contribute to the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy Frontline magazine. Hopefully my enthusiasm and passion for the profession comes across 😀. I have been supporting Physiotherapy students during my role in the NHS. I am incredibly passionate not just about Physiotherapy as a whole but also the new generation of physios coming through. Was not expecting a 4 page spread!
