The greater danger for most of us is not
that our aim is too high and we miss it,
but that it is too low and we reach it."
- Michelangelo

Recently I've been thinking about my diet and comparing it to the Tarahumara tribe and other great Ultra-distance runners. They seem to eat more beans, lentils, seeds etc. I remember a couple of years ago I got into eating sprouted seeds and stuff. I also read Dr Gillian McKeith's book on You Are What You Eat.

So in the next couple of weeks I'm going to try and eat more sprouted stuff. I started today with breakfast (quinoa). Here's a useful link for anyone interested...

I've also been running barefooted a little and I am increasing it slowly. Yesterday I ran about 1 mile barefoot. After putting my shoes back on I was surprised to feel how heavy my shoes are. Here's another link for anyone interested in barefoot running.


Yesterday I went for a 20 mile run and I did it with 3 other running buddies, Andy, Daz and Chris. They are all great runners and it was good to run with them.
