How being 'rubbish at sports' made him want to do a sports science degree

His love for the Triathlon

Why training gradually means that you can stay injury free

The mentality needed to complete an ultra endurane race

What changes in someones character after being truly alone in the dessert

How compassion for others is a major motivator for him

Why starting a nutrition plan 2 weeks out from an event is leaving it too late

And how 'nutritional pshycology' is his next big adventure
