Liven up your Mid-Week Runs with Intervals!

I wrote in a previous blog about my decision to run the Great Ocean Road Half Marathon, and I am pretty excited to report that I finished it just under my goal time and suffered no injuries during the process.

Searching for Motivation

I have mostly lead a very active life, playing multiple sports during my teens and then playing senior football for 17 years. During this time I would train 2 or 3 times a week and play a game on the weekends. The beauty of playing team sport for such a long period is that there is never a need to find “motivation” to exercise, as I always had other people relying on me to perform and I would never want to let my team down.
