Buddhism, treadmills and Halloween

Buddhism, treadmills and Halloween

So its Halloween as I write this, ‘All Hallows Evening’ the celebration of remembering the dead, revolving around “humour and ridicule to confront the power of death” we carve pumpkins, we dress up in costumes and eat mountains of sweets- a brilliant celebration, especially if you are a child of have children. In my case teaching children,
Chalk & Cheese

Chalk & Cheese

Being observant means not just seeing objects and materialistic things, it also means interpreting and analysing behaviour and feelings. In teaching we observe children working, learning and playing and use this to figure out ways to support that child's learning and happiness. Sometimes however I find myself 'people-watching', I love just watching
“It doesn’t matter who you are.  What matters is your plan.” The Dark Knight Rises

“It doesn’t matter who you are. What matters is your plan.” The Dark Knight Rises

Recently I have discussed my route into and around sports with many people; questions such as: why do you like running? Why did you stop swimming? Why did you start triathlon? And it’s made me stop and realistically consider the reasons behind some of my choices in life, dissect them, and link them together. Our decisions in life can sometimes be
The Big GB

The Big GB

So, its been a while. What can I say? new job, new home, new friends, new clubs...oh yes and a GB squad qualification. Lovely. Its been rather mad to say the least, I feel like I'm on a cloud floating in a life that I have always wished for. Training so hard throughout my teenage years was tough, especially balancing school and battling to see thro
Abi on my shoulder

Abi on my shoulder

Sometimes in life I feel like there are two Abi's, one on each shoulder. Yes, this is a slightly strange post. One Abi loves life, takes the challenge and is an immature, optimistic, ambitious young woman. The other Abi, seeks absolute perfection in all areas of life and anything other that the best just simply is failure, not enough, routines need
Keep on pushing

Keep on pushing

A week on, and I'm almost there with a speedy carbon fiber bike - courtesy of Terry Wright Cyles- Market Deeping. A wonderful, friendly, knowledgeable (thank goodness- as I'm clueless) cycle shop have recognised my potential in triathlon, reaching this level on my 'iron horse' as they called it and in my first open water event proving to be impress
Hurricane Abi

Hurricane Abi

This week has been a storm! A hurricane of training, teaching, plans, friends, photos and grumps swirled together and creating havoc in high speed rush mode!! So where do I start? Meeting the fabulous James Greenwell, CEO of Proto-col has ignited my passion to get everyone in need of a lift on Green Magic! (just brilliant, 17 superfoods in one teas
Just keep swimming

Just keep swimming

So as a child I went to centre parcs every summer for around five years. Brilliant, great, lucky me. However the lake there was always full of huge gross fish that would snap up my wotsits when i dropped them off the platforms there. So needless to say, I wasnt overly keen on going in lakes ever since. Open water, not seeing the bottom, swan poop,
Inspiration

Inspiration

So I'm thoroughly inspired and ready to take it all on. Generally in life I am incessantly hyper-active and in 'taking over the world' mode. Recently described as 'Duracell'. Until I hit my wall of anxiety. Focus leaves me, doubt fills me and my brain doesn't feel like mine anymore. So thats why I leap straight back to sport, or teaching. Then I fi
its all in the head

its all in the head

Since moving to Market Deeping and working in Peterborough I have met a huge amount of new friends, a large proportion on these may I add are through running and triathlon. Moving gyms, training with several different clubs, and having a program written by Stephan Lawrence has given training a new platform in life, it has allowed me to be surrounde
