Favourite exercise in the gym:

Favourite PhD Nutrition product:
Why you chose PhD Nutrition to officially endorse:
All PhD products are perfectly formulated and contain no rubbish. It is important to me that I fuel my body with the correct nutrition and supplements... PhD ensures this! PhD is also a company with integrity and an excellent reputation that precedes them.
Describe the different styles of training you do:
I prefer to mix my training up, this means my body never gets used to a certain training stimulus and also keeps me motivated. I do a lot of circuit, whole body workouts at the moment combined with tempo runs, intervals, hill sessions and long trail runs.
Future aims and objectives within your chosen sport:
Compete in a couple of British Trail running competitions to gain enough qualification points to gain entry and run the 2011 Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc.
Training programme (typical week)
Sunday Trail run (3-8 hours duration)
Tuesday Hill training
Wednesday Comprehensive stretching routine and a sports massage
Friday Tempo run (1 hour)
