I love swimming, but I’ve got to admit – it can get a little boring. I think it is especially so in a pool doing long distance. I don’t see why even the most avid swimmer would disagree with me. Back and forth for an hour or so is pretty darn tedious. There has to be a way of making it a little bit more interesting? Surely? Right?     I’ve always been interested in ways to make the…

    My friends and I are lovers of unusual missions and adventures and any idea like “I wonder if we can do this?” is always met with a response of “challenge accepted!” So when I spotted an ingenious invention on the Decathlon website (now one of my most visited websites apparently!) we had to get it and have a go. The sporting creation in question is a portable basketball hoop simply called The Hoop by Kipsta.   Basically, it’s…

    Over the past six months I’ve really gotten into squash. It’s such a great sport to play. I’ve been going regularly with my friends and sometimes girlfriend (about once a week) and I absolutely love it. I can really see an improvement in my game, it so much fun either when just rallying or when playing competitively. Aside from being an easy sport to pick up, here are my 5 reasons that you should have a go at…

  Rock climbing has always appealed to me. I remember watching Cliff Hanger as a teenager just thinking how cool it was and how exciting- a really daring sport. Last year, I realised there was a climbing club not too far away, Granite Planet. Although they run weekly sessions indoors, the club regularly take trips outside to popular rock climbing routes all over Cornwall and beyond. So my girlfriend and I decided to join up. Everyone was so nice and…

  I’m totally engulfed in excitement at this weekend’s England Vs Wales Six Nations match on Sunday! I have got so excited that I’ve bought the latest England rugby shirt. Where ever you are watching rugby in the world, there will always be a couple of Welsh people. Despite there sometimes small number they seem to have a special gift for making their presence known and showing their devoted patriotism, this is why I feel it is my duty to…

  As you might have read in one of my posts last week, I’ve been thinking about being a bit more healthy. I thought one easy way of upping my fitness was getting back into running. One of the things that used to stop me from running was my lack of the proper gear. Like anything, running without the right kit isn’t anywhere near as enjoyable as when you have the proper equipment. The less fun something is, the more…

  This post is called All About Scales for two reasons: Number One I’d say that I’m a pretty active and healthy gent but not one that goes to the gym or worries about what he eats and drinks. They way I see it, you could get hit by a bus tomorrow so although you don’t want to actively ruin your body, having a little indulgence every now and then is something to celebrate not demonize. Life is all about…

  I recently decided to get into cycling a bit more and buy a mountain bike. I wanted something that was half decent but didn’t want to spend a fortune. (I don’t think it’s ever really a good idea to spend a fortune on a new hobby) So trying to save a pretty penny, I opted for 2nd hand. It is tricky buying a used bike as you end up having quite a limited selection to choose from, after you’ve…
