People were fascinated by the process of…

Feel Good Friday

There's something really giddy about finding old things you had as a child and it bringing back memories of your childhood.

I had that feeling this week when I found my old power ranger egg cup. The dreams of being the white ranger came flooding back and I now have refound my aim and ambition of becoming the white power ranger. (Go Go Power Rangers)

The point I'm making is that we all have dreams, some made when we are younger and more juvenile, some more crazy than others but each… Continue

Method Training

This month part of my method training requires me to choose an animal most akin to myself and to start working out ways of humanising their movement and behaviour. I have chosen the wild Welsh mountain pony.

I have been studying the ponies on Newport mountain and Carn ingli in Pembrokeshire. They are incredibly captivating to watch,very cautious and as yet I haven't been able to get too close. Limited time doesn't allow me to build any sort of bond with them,but sitting quietly… Continue

Feel Good Friday

And just like that Usain Bolt makes history yet again. In a combined time of less than 30 seconds he has won yet another 100m and 200m gold.

And as amazing as that is I can't help but feel more excitement at the new record of gold medals Team GB has won.

We've smashed our target of medals won at this olympics and there is still a few days left. And within that there are records being broke with Bradley Wiggins becoming our most decorated Olympian, Laura Trott becoming the first GB… Continue

Feel Good Friday

And we are off!! The olympics are here - Rio 2016

I don't know why but each time the olympics are on I never feel uninspired quite the far opposite in actual fact.

When you watch fellow countrymen break world records and win olympic medals, there isn't much more to say. It's inspirational in itself and should be taken as motivation.

Being that we are in Rio for the next two weeks I thought I'd use a quote from possibly the greatest athlete to come out of… Continue

we're here because we're here - A blog from my mate Ian

Ian and I met on the Isle of Arran 20+ years ago whilst leading Oxfordshire Duke of Edinburgh expedition groups over the midge ridden island.  Since then we have lead many expeditions throughout the UK and shared great company, food, drink and stories.  Even though Ian smashed a sheet of ice over my head for photographic effect on an expedition once, I would entrust my life with him!  That is why he was the first person in my head when the idea of taking a group up Snowdon for this epic…
