OPTIMUM HEALTH DIARY: This section documents my pursuit of peak health and sports performance using established methods, breakthroughs in sports science and alternative/nature options. Hitting a number of personal best the older I get has made me ponder whether the body deteriorates on default or whether our lifestyles and mindset has a lot to do with this. I’ll answer that question in this weekly diary. (Literally all of my sporting & fitness personal bests have happened in this period of my life so watch this space!!) ______________________________________________
TODAY I ran the City Of London Mile Race with my sister Cheryl. Great atmosphere – both fun & competitive and very well organised, will live long in memory. We both set personal best times for the mile. My sister absolutely smashed hers!!
My sister is the organiser of Newham’s Park Run and a member of East End Road Runners. I’m considering becoming a member of East End Road Runners to increase the number and length of runs I do per week.
