Overnight Oats

This is just a quick post so won’t take too long to read. I wanted something that would help my calorie intake and which was simply to make and could be eaten anytime. There are many recipes for overnight oats this is my twist.

Gym Training

I have had a few people ask me about my gym training and the exercises that I incorporate into my sessions. Currently my programme is strength, power, strength as we are now getting into competition season. I have three sessions with six different exercises in each. Here are some of the exercises and why I do them.

Northeast Pentathlon Championships Sunday 19th March

On Saturday I made the long trip up to Gateshead for my final indoor competition of the season. This was going to be a real test as it would be the first time I had completed 5 events in one day, for several years. It wasn’t a traditional pentathlon which would normally include, hurdles, long jump, shot putt, high jump and 1000m but the 1000m was changed to a flat 60m sprint due to the limitations of the indoor facility.

Starting Again

As a junior I was heavily involved in athletics as a decathlete. Unfortunately, as an under 20 I sustained a pretty serious back injury that prevented me competing at the level I knew I was capable of when fully fit. Consequently, I stopped competing. I never lost my love of the sport and kept an eye out for performances of the top athletes.
