  • Commit to fit: 2021 events to train for now

    On your marks, get set, and go! Fancy challenging yourself this year? Then you could do a lot worse than booking yourself onto these Bucks and Oxon races and triathlons. Dig out your trainers and dig deep.

  • Oxfordshire bike ride

    8 brilliant local bike rides (and a tribute)

    My village recently lost two much-loved members of its cycling community. In tribute, here are 3 of their favourite rides - plus 5 others right across Bucks and Oxon.

  • Fitness challenge!

    There's nothing like a race looming to motivate you to go for a walk, run, swim or cycle on these chilly autumn mornings. So grab your Lycra and sign up for one of these sporty challenges pronto!

  • You cannot be serious!

    Ever wished you had your own tennis umpire to hand to judge the disputed line calls? Muddy tries out PlaySight at Stoke Park and enjoys a 'pro' moment.

    Fallen off your fitness regime? Yeah, me too (grrrr) . Never mind, let's get back on the horse with these 6 super-smart ways to train from PT and triathlete Steve Carvey.

  • Deep tissue issue? Say hi to David Lucas

    David Lucas, owner of this mini canine, has kneeded and elbowed my shell of a body into working order with his deep tissue sports massage.

  • Head-to-toe health check

    Do you have the nerve? From cholestrol to diabetes checks, heart to liver function tests, I've been there, done that and got the 'Your Doctor' badge.

  • Move over Bieber! Muddy tries cupping

    Move over Bieber! Cupping isn't just for LaLa Land celebs - it's on the menu in Oxfordshire too. I've been there, done that and got the circles to prove it.
