As the clouds lift, I find myself plotting and planning what's next. Within the bigger projects I've been blessed to have in front of me, I ask myself, is it time to get back to basics? Life is practice, never loose sight of the power of stripping it all down and starting again.

Because this is no race!
🏃🏽🚶🏾‍♀️🏃🏿‍♀️🚶🏼
Our first priority at BP HQ was to design a group structure that would be welcoming to those who've never run before, or those amazing road warriors always worried about being too slow. Remember, speed is relative to you. We all have a fast and we all have a slow, so no need to benchmark yourself vs others. We're going to help you understand the different gears you have, as, when and IF you wish to explore them. You may just find your happy pace, some new friends to run with and feel no need to work your way through our groups. We want to give you the choice of progression, but without pressure to take it. Miles and smiles always come first.
🚶🏾‍♀️🏃🏽🏃🏿‍♀️🚶🏼
Our three pacing groups will be as follows
----
👣Walk/Jog
X time on, and X time to recover, the perfect way to start your running journey or start to fight back safely from injury.
----
👣Jog
Let's try to keep moving, with some gentle 11 to 12 minutes miles.
----
👣Run
Time to explore the average marathon pace for most, the 10 minute mile. We'll occasionally explore what sub 10 looks like to help you understand your pacing and gears to develop into a stronger runner. As always you don't have to and we'll make it fun, fun, fun.
----
So that's it! We'll be all heading out the door together to warm up before separating off, and around for questions after to discuss your training plans and goals. We're thinking we need to find some local food spots for refuelling as well. Any recommendations? Oh, and don't forget, hit the link in our bio for all our event details.

What if we told you of a Club, one were boys could be boys, and discuss what it takes to become men, surrounded by amazing dudes from all walks of life. Would you want to come play?! Would it nudge you to ask questions about why suicide is the biggest killer in chaps under the age of 45?! What if we wanted to create a network, awareness and a legacy, all while breaking down stereotypes of us lads. Would you come hang?! Fuck it, let's go for it and have some fun. 12 Months, 12 events and some dope wingmen along for the ride. Get ready for BoysClub.

The sun is shining and tonight we continue to make you comfortable with the uncomfortable. Come fall down the rabbit hole, 6:45pm @dukeofyorksquare
•••
"@chasinglightscollective is a London based running community who are continually exploring what it takes to connect the dots between mind and body. We believe in a mindful approach to training that not only translates into stronger performance on the road, but also lends itself to managing the stresses of the 9 to 5.
•••
Our summer residency @dukeofyorksquare will be a progressive programme for newbie runners through to seasoned marathoners. The aim is to unplug from the watches and numbers and reconnect with how we should feel when pushing ourselves to become smarter, stronger athletes
•••
Breath, meditation, visualisation, running technique, pacing and understanding of gears and how to safely push our engines in a safe way, will be sandwiched between mobility and strength based warm up and cool downs.
•••
We create workouts designed for the busy mover, who’s looking to understand how to fit in all elements of training into one concise session. At the end of the 8 weeks the crew will be hosting a city based run and party to celebrate the journey we’ll be taking you on.
•••
These sessions are designed for all levels, and due to our ethos, the nature of the track and playing field, no one gets left behind or made to feel like they shouldn’t be there. We are all inclusive and running is second to creating a nurturing environment for people of various confidence levels and stages in training.
•••
ChasingLights Collective has been founded by Run, Movement and Mindfulness Coach Chevy Rough, who will be hosting the sessions alongside Vice Captain Nav Kiani and various guests coaches."

"Keeping it together"
•••
My second week back coaching @backpackersclc and continuing our journey down the rabbit hole of how we connect the dots to become mindful movers.
•••
➡️ How do we harness our Bodyweight to run?
➡️ Why are we in fear of falling?
➡️ Why is position important?
➡️ How do we brace for movement?
➡️ Why are the shapes we create throughout the day, relevant to our time on the road?
➡️ Even though we can run a certain pace, do we have the right to?
➡️ Breath, breath, breath

The journey unfolds

The more I watch this, the more I actually LOL at the dramatic music choice. But then I think @littlelilliput is a megastar for all the hard work shes puts in, even when the internal critic steps up, so damn straight we'll celebrate Liz's training like an epic blockbuster.
•••
As of September I'm opening up a range of slots for those looking to connect the dots between mind and body via the exploration of movement.
•••
As well as a handful of slots @metabolicldn for strength and conditioning, Ive spaces located across London. Packages range from one off consultations through to fully encompassing marathon planning. Holler at me for details. Payment options available

🚨 Evening Standard Interview 🚨
•••
⬆️ Link to full video in bio ⬆️
•••
I'm trying to evolve the conversation, to ask new questions and find a fresh path untrodden. I learn from those who inspire me, I tinker with formulas and attempt to disrupt through self exploration, experimentation and bravery, while going left of right at every turn. All roads lead me to connecting the dots between mind and body, helping others realise that the workings of the mind and the body are not separate, but a unity that must be addressed as one. We then have to ask how we share this knowledge? Passing it on to those who could value the power of movement, connection and community most. The next chapter is unfolding and I'm blessed people are listening. The journey to being a MindfulMover continues.
•••
Big love to @fitness_in_feature and @evening.standard for listening and translating into the dope short, and @lululemonuk for the introduction. Super hyped to be chatting through everything that runs around my head at my talk tomorrow for #lululemon SweatLife 2017. Catch you on stage.

Quite out of character I totally failed to take any pictures at @cagerunnersclc tonight, and as we know if there are no pictures it didn't happen, so I took a random picture afterward. That aside it was a really interesting experience working with @chasing19 thinking about #mindfulmovement, listening to your body and the importance of strength. Lots to think about, lots to work on. @chasinglightscollective #🆑collective #🆑mindset #chasinglights #2x10k #running

Yes so, kind of excited to be back full time with @backpackersclc on Thursdays and digging into how we can continue to support and grow this amazing community of brave road warriors. Building confidence is what we do best, it's ok to be nervous, we got you. Come hang, 6:45pm from @lululemonuk Regent St.

We've spent the last 8 weeks working alongside a beautiful bunch of young adults from Tower Hamlets Care Leavers, getting them ready for the @virginsport #british10k. Couldn't of been prouder seeing them fly and cheer each other on today. Massive shout out to the support workers who put in all the hours to nurture and help these young minds

Looking forward to the next chapter of #🆑ProjectGlow. Final salutes to @elleenergy_ @katbaldwyn and @samtewari for moving it forward in support.
