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. Does the body deteriorate on default or does our lifestyles and mindset have a lot to do with it? I’ll answer that question in this weekly diary. This is a quest for both health & excellence, I want to push my body to its sporting limits to see what is possible. Why not? Let’s be open minded & approach it as an adventure as well as research. (Literally all of my sporting & fitness personal bests have happened in this period of my life so watch this space!!) I’ll be using my film-making and editing skills to also create a video diary here. ______________________________________________
THURS SEPT 10TH: Today set my personal best for 5k during a training run at Olympic Park. Ran 31mins & 1 sec. That’s a 10min.14sec pace. Hoping to run sub-30mins at the official Lee Valley Olympic Park 5k on Sept 19. Is that target looking too ambitious?
