Amsterdam Marathon

Morning folks!

How y’all doing?

I’m writing this email in bed with some serious aching legs after Amsterdam Marathon on Sunday, pleased to say despite a rocky start it all went well and I smashed my target time!

There was about 12-13,000 runners on the day. We were packed in like Sardines in the Olympic stadium, eventually when we got started and the race begun it began to spread out a little.

The first hour consisted of a quick roadside toilet break, being a little sick, my headphone batteries dying, watch losing GPS and dropping my much needed energy gel.

Definitely felt it wasn’t going to be my day!

I was running a few yards, getting stuck in a crowd…

Overtaking them

Then getting stuck behind some more runners

Overtake

etc etc

This went on and on in the race and definitely slowed me down a fair bit.

I know a lot of you aren’t interested in running so why am I telling you this?

Well my friends this can be related to your attempts at (insert goal)..

It’s all about momentum.

I didn’t achieve my maximum as it was so stop start, I was going okay then slowing, then starting again continuously and it slowed me down and drained my energy.

For many people trying to lose weight it’s the same old story.
– Eat healthy for a couple of days
– Has a social engagement/weekend/night out and eat crap/drink loads
– Takes a few days to get over it
– Starts again Monday and the cycle begins again

This goes on for weeks, months and even years!

With my systems I can show you the simplest ways to overcome these problems without it having a massive effect on your life and enjoyment.
