This is the story of how I combined getting fit and healthy while having a fantastic time on holiday in Weymouth in 2015. It is still one of the best set of memories I made that year or any year but also one of the most active, playful and fun. Day 5 was a nice relaxed day with plenty of fun …

in my experience we are taught in mainstream culture that getting fit and healthy is hard work and very much the opposite of play.

Yesterday I did my parent workouts while taking mini me to the World Cyclocross Championships as they visited Milton Keynes for the first time. I couldn’t actually believe that a world championship event would be right on …
