The Mindful Athlete, Secrets to Pure Performance, by George Mumford

Here are some of my thoughts on The Mindful Athlete, along with some key quotes from the book. Most of us accept that being mentally focussed when we are running is important, what if we could go further? Have you ever had one of those runs where everything just ‘flows’ and becomes easy?

The Mindful Runner Part 3 – Non Judgement

I’ve just got back from a wonderful ‘Introduction to Mindfulness’ workshop lead by my good wife Becky, a trained mindfulness teacher.
