This post is a little update to tell you that I am winding down this blog. But I have a new place for my writing www.damienclarkson.com, where I will be writing more broadly about my life, politics, cycling, environment and yes still running, veganism and health and fitness, please come over and say hi.
Just to bring you up to speed. Over the past few months, I have been rehabbing my muscle tightness after the Edinburgh Marathon and embarking on physio. I am making progress but still definitely at a point where I have a lot of tension in my legs. As a result I am running less, around 10 miles a week and mixing it up with cycling, swimming and a bespoke circuits style class with my friend Kate in London Fields called, Pump, Sweat and Burn.
This blog has been a massive source of inspiration and support for me. Without it I don’t think I would be where I am now, which is basically the fittest, slimmest and healthiest I have been in a decade. You comments literally hundreds of them got me through so many tough moments. And I just want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart. You’re kind people putting love into the world and that is a powerful thing.
One last thing tomorrow I am doing some unique. I am curating a 5km run mixed with a protest about the need to tackle climate change as part of The Future’s day of protest through yoga, running, meditation and dance. Which will take place in NYC, Berlin, LA, Sydney, San Fran, Paris and London as world leaders will meet at a special UN Summit on climate change.
I have long been involved in the environmental movement and to combine these two things I love is really exciting for me. We’re meeting at Parliament Square in Westminster at 7:45pm. This is the event, please come and join me and The Future to call for urgent action on climate change and sweat a little bit.
And I hope to see you all over on my new blog www.damienclarkson.com soon.
