ThatIsBeyond… My Fitness Journey (part 1)

In many ways 2019 had not been my best year. Don’t get me wrong there have been some amazing highlights, there is no doubt about that, but there has also been a lot that I would rather forget! One thing that changed drastically for me, was a perception of who I was and who I […]

ThatIsBeyond… Kennies boxer briefs, mental health and the models that I want to be mates with!

It’s not every day that you can truly say that you have an affinity with a brand. There can be lots of variables that get in the way. One of the key issues being tackled in recent months is male mental health and I think, that when it comes to fashion, I am greatly affected […]

ThatIsBeyond…Supporting your tackle with HOM

With all of the trials and tribulations of Marathon training I had to take some time to explore the right underwear to protect my tackle on the big day! Style, fabric, anti-chafe and airiness are all factors that needed to be considered, when committing to the pants that I will be wearing for the 26.2 […]

ThatIsBeyond… If the shoe was on the other foot!

I thought it was time to discuss the decline in my exercise regime, and try to explain part of the reason that I have been absent from Twitter and my blog for a short while. It has been a combination of contributing factors, but mostly the tale starts with my Achilles heel… In my case, […]

That is Beyond – National Running Day – Happy Socks Fun!

   So having had a day to recover, I thought it I was time to reflect on the happy morning that was had on National Running Day! It’s not very often that I wake up at 5.45am and describe the experience as fun! But this lovely little Fun Run (totalling 5km of London parks and […]

ThatIsBeyond… Exercising my right to enjoy exercise.

Who knew that exercise could be fun? I can’t be the last one to have been let in on the secret? Could I? 2015 has been about getting back into the swing of exercise, but without forcing my own hand. I enjoy many sports, but still I find myself gravitating to the same gym routine […]

ThatIsBeyond… Inspiration from 2014

I find this time of year to be reflective. I spend hours thinking of how the next year can be better than the previous one, and exploring what it is that I want to achieve with the next 365 days. I write this, having just had confirmation that a friend of mine has completed 12 […]

ThatIsBeyond… Breaking the Gym and other exercise stories.

2015 is the year of the triathlon for me. I don’t know why, but there is something that really appeals about this sporting feat. I think it was probably watching the Brownlee Brothers at the Olympics that really got the idea in my head, but since then I have had the idea that it might […]

ThatIsBeyond…Why it has to be more than just losing weight!

I, like a number of people out there, need to lose some weight. This is not the pressures of society, the magazines or the fact that clothing never fits me (although I am sure that these are huge contributors to many, and to me respectively), it is about me “Getting Into Shape” In the real […]

That is beyond…My marathon training must haves!

That is beyond… My marathon training must haves! Pictured above are some of my marathon training must-haves. As you may already know TIB (aka me!) is running the Stockholm marathon! This will be my first one and so I am working through a schedule to make this even possible. Some of the key factors for […]
