The Body vs The Mind

05:00am 21 Mar 2014  Last week I wrote about becoming a process-driven athlete rather than just getting bogged down by the results. This week I'm carrying on that discussion by referencing a wonderful study on parenting.  "Parenting? Isn't this a blog about running?!" Well, in a way an athlete's mind forms the role of the parent and the athlete's body the child.   The mind is directing the body into how much sleep, what sort of food and how much of it, what exercise, and what other learning needs to take place in order for the athlete to develop-just like a parent directs the child in order to develop the human being.

Bad debt and very bad debt

05:00am 24 Feb 2014  Interest rates are on the rise. The Governor of the Reserve Bank has for some time now been saying interest rates will rise and most economists expect rates to rise by 2% within two years. For most people that means they will be paying more on interest, and have less for the other things.
