Monday Morning Motivation: Joe Skipper – Gettin...

Joe Skipper is the fastest British long distance triathlete, having finished Challenge Roth in under 8 hours, so I thought it might be useful to hear about his training schedule in this video that was released in February 2016.

Monday Morning Motivation: We are marathoners

Im not sure this video qualifies as motivating, but the number of stereotypes that it includes made me smile, so I thought it was worth a share. Marathoners are a different breed. Their world is full of meticulous planning; of getting up before the sun; of personal sacrifice; of lungs gasping for air as they [] read more »

Monday Morning Motivation – What can you endure?

Jaret Grossman: Theres a certain delusional quality that all successful people have to have.

Monday Morning Motivation – Labels against women

Continuing with my feminist inspiration on a Monday morning, I thought Id share this Filipino commercial for Pantene shampoo. It shows some of the dichotomies that women face.

Monday Morning Motivation – Meet Non Stanford’s...

Triathlon is one of the most physically demanding sports in the world. Mastering three disciplines simultaneously puts an immense amount of pressure on an athlete’s body.

Monday Morning Motivation – Ernestine Shepherd

Too often, people think that you should lower your expectations as you age. Sure, you may not beat PBs that you set at a younger age, but that doesnt mean you cant achieve great things (and in terms of running, age grading is a wonderful thing!) I first read about Ernestine Shepherd in 2015. She [] read more »

Monday Morning Motivation – I also know the off...

Too often we make assumptions about what people can/cannot do and what they might know. Ive experienced this when visiting bike shops.
