Playing the waiting game...
Currently sitting in a Starbucks in the shadows of the Brandenburg Gate. The blue lines marking out the route sit silently on the tarmac in front of me. Taunting me with with their quietness on this sleepy Saturday morning in Berlin. There is nothing like the feeling of a pre-race day. Tomorrow I will eat up those blue lines all 26.2 miles of them… I just hope that there is some miracle...

Saturday's Crossfit Team Competition.
So I haven’t found the motivation to sit in front of the computer to write this post the past few days. On Saturday morning, as I’m sure a lot of you know, I had my first experience of competitive Crossfit. I arrived at the box in Andover at 9:30 for a 10am start and while we were all chatting outside waiting for someone to turn up with some keys to open up we drew the lots for the...
In 2 weeks I will be in Berlin - gearing up for the Berlin Marathon. I’m excited to finally be visiting this great city.
I have just been invited to take part in the 1st annual work cheeseburger challenge. 1 hour - as many McDonalds cheeseburgers as possible. I never turn down a challenge but seriously!!!
Anonymous asked: You are simply incredible. Not only inspiring, but handsome to boot. I love watching your progress :)
Back to the box... And an introduction
So after a week off due to the back injury I wondered into the 6pm session at Crossfit Reading today. After the yesterdays half my Legs were a little stiff and my left foot had swollen up (although to be fairy this was probably a drinking injury from Friday). The last think i wanted to see was squats on the whiteboard, alas 6x5 back squats were there sticking two fingers up at me. Now Normally...
I have become THAT arsehole
Friend: So what have you got planned tomorrow?
Me: Yeah I'm doing a Half Marathon
Friend: Oh wow, will your back be ok? Do you have to do any special preparations tonight get ready?
Me: Nah it's only a Half - I can do that in my sleep. I normally run 17-20 miles on a Saturday.
I hate me
I had a heart to heart with a friend yesterday. She told me she thinks I still see myself as the old Rob. I agree. I still see myself as the 237+ guy. I have no self confidence.
