This week our Deputy Head of Sport, Terry Cooper, shares what is currently helping him with his physical and mental wellness.

“In the last few weeks, I have had some ups and downs.

1. I changed my mindset from the run being something that I am doing for a physical benefit, to something that I am doing so that I achieve something that day.

2. The fact that I have changed my outlook to focus on the achievement of a run, rather than the purpose of the run, means that it doesn’t matter how far I go, how fast I run or where I go. As soon as I am out of the house, I have already won.

“Believe me, as someone who is classed as a fitness professional, this is a breath of fresh air; to not compare or have expectations.
