Now Now Now

What is a now page? It’s the fine line between an about page, twitter updates, and a biography. The top line story if I were to catch up with an old friend.

What I’m doing now

(Updated Aug 2022)

Fitness

  • Got overtraining syndrome in April trying to run a 15:59 5k
  • Then in early July strained my lower back trying to squat heavy weight with low reps then doing a compound step up movement afterwards (chiro said something about compressed spine, etc.)
  • Went a bit dark but found the extra time nice
  • I went sub 17 mins twice in 2021 but not nearly as fit as last year.
  • Just staying consistent with a 30-45 min aerobic run 4-5 days a week and a long run and gym 2-3 times a week.
  • Had a super consistent July moving into August and looking like a half marathon effort in October should help keep me focused.
  • Stay tuned and follow me on Strava for daily inspiration, motivation and stoic lulz!

Podcast/Audio

Posting up episodes consistently (every 2 weeks) for the last 12 months! This is a record in my books.
Getting a lot of traction with the new Trees & Dlake series. Lots of learning lessons in a short bite sized manner. Listen here.

Writing

Slightly new and revamped newsletter format (way more fun – subscribe fir freenow!)

Music

  • Making random beats really fast (in 5-15mins!) with a new app called Groovebox (works great on iPhone and iPad). A lot of fun!

Reading

  • Non – Fiction/Documentary Shoe Dog by Phil Knight (The founder of Nike). I thought it would be a running book. But it’s a business and life book that has a bit of running in it. Such a great story teller/writer.
  • Productivity & Learnings – Just reading blogs and such. Going super deep on creating a 2nd brain with Notion and organising all these random notes and ideas I have floating around between email, my head, and other note taking docs. Getting there…
  • Fiction – Tried to get into World War Z but wasn’t really feeling it. Got about 10% through

Watching

  • Way too deep in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and catching up on the last 7 years of things I missed. Right now it’s all the Disney + exclusive stuff (Loki, The falcon & the winter soldier, Wanda vision,etc.)
  • Why Marvel? Helps with my storytelling as you can almost see the structure and frameworks they use
  • Marvel’s secret sauce is in how they tie the whole MCU together and have overlapping story arcs with characters. That’s always fun.
  • Also – I’ve curated and organised all of the hours I’ve spent watching youtube videos. Check it out here.
