My story

[p]Hi my name is Trev, I'm running the Manchester Marathon in April!! eek.. I also plan to joggle at least some of it (Joggling is juggling while you run, when I first had a breakdown I learnt to juggle in my recovery..). The first part of this is running every day in January for Oxfordshire MIND'S. R.E.D. challenge.[/p][p]I have suffered from mental health problems for many years, and also have experienced the great work these three charities do so please do use this excuse to donate generously to them if you can :). [/p][p]BandofBrothers : [url=http://www.abandofbrothers.org.uk]www.abandofbrothers.org.uk[/url][/p][p]Oxfordshire MIND : [url=http://www.oxfordshiremind.org.uk]www.oxfordshiremind.org.uk[/url][/p][p]Restore! : [url=http://www.restore.org.uk]www.restore.org.uk[/url][/p][p][br][/p][p]Update GOOD FRIDAY 30th march[/p][p]I'm almost there 97% of original target! thanks so much to those who have donated so far. I'll keep going of course, the more we can raise for the charities the better.. [/p][p][br][/p][p]INTERVIEW [/p][p]https://soundcloud.com/trevwilliams/trev-williams-start-line-tour-2018-interview[/p][p][br][/p][p]Update MONDAY 26th March,[/p][p][br][/p][p]We had press come to RHR, and my sister was in the Oxford Paper about M.E. and the PACE trial.. it's been a hectic day to say the least. Thanks again for your support [/p][p][br][/p][p]Update 11th March,[/p][p]So I've been steadily increasing my short runs, and have done a few 5 miles this week. I'm back on Strava (woop) that had been depressing me a lot but I seem more optimistic I can actually run now. Theres still a LONG way to go to build some distance and not hurt my ankle, I hope to run a half distance this week as a test.. that may be the longest I'll manage before I taper. thanks for you support :)[/p][p]---[/p][p]Update 3rd March.[/p][p]OK so I had an Xray :(. but my ankle isn't broken woop, it's still sore but I have lots of exercises and am gradually getting back to the running and trying to keep the tendons ok.. I'm doing gym, cross training, aqua jogging and cycling. It's a slow build to run only really doing 5ks at the moment but hoping to build that up and still planning to run.. I hope to do the whole thing.. but I'm allowing myself to do as far as I can (that saves me pushing too hard / injuring myself again).. I will keep everyone updated here.[/p][p]Still keeping up the juggling... :)[/p][p][url=http://www.trevwilliams.co.uk/video/trevjuggle.mp4]http://www.trevwilliams.co.uk/video/trevjuggle.mp4[/url][/p][p]---[/p][p][br][/p][p]It's not where you are, its where you've come from thats the challenge. [/p][p]Update FEB 12th. 2018[/p][p]I've had a tough month with injury, I've not really been able to train at all, and I've had some other stresses which has meant my mental health has had a bit of a blip too. Its 2 years today since my flatmate Alex sadly passed away in a accident, I've learnt a lot since then about myself, and the ABoB training I did this weekend has really helped me. I've been doing some AQUA running (in a swimming pool) and seeing the doctor today to check how much running I can do but will get back to it soon :)[/p][p][br][/p][p]---[/p][p]World Mental Health Day, Oxfordshire TV interview [/p][vmgvideo class="ql-video" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/DEAn_jrBYAc?showinfo=0&rel=0&iv_load_policy=3"][/vmgvideo][p][url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DEAn_jrBYAc&feature=share%EF%BB%BF]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DEAn_jrBYAc&feature=share%EF%BB%BF[/url][/p][p][br][/p][p]The Only One - MUSIC VIDEO[/p][vmgvideo class="ql-video" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/AuwmYRBcl00?showinfo=0&rel=0&iv_load_policy=3"][/vmgvideo][p][url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuwmYRBcl00]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuwmYRBcl00[/url][/p][p][br][/p][p]The Start Line - MUSIC VIDEO[/p][vmgvideo class="ql-video" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/R5jGJrfe5eY?showinfo=0&rel=0&iv_load_policy=3"][/vmgvideo][p][url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5jGJrfe5eY&t=3s]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5jGJrfe5eY&t=3s[/url][/p][p][br][/p][p]Along the Way - MUSIC VIDEO[/p][vmgvideo class="ql-video" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/gOxh5z_85SU?showinfo=0&rel=0&iv_load_policy=3"][/vmgvideo][p][url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOxh5z_85SU]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOxh5z_85SU[/url][/p][p]GIGS [/p][p]I'm playing the following Shows also to promote The Start Line - Album around the marathon : [/p][p]The Swan, Wantage, Easter Sunday 1st April, 4:30pm[/p][p]Leeds, Gaslight Club, Oporto, Call Lane 8pm Monday 9th April w/James Dey[/p][p]Manchester, Thirsty Scholar, 8pm Tuesday 10th April w/Tuesday Tony[/p][p]London, Bar 1001, 7pm Friday 14th April [/p][p]Oxford Folk Festival, venue tbc 7pm Saturday 21st April w/Bethany Weimears[/p][p][br][/p][p]FREE DOWNLOAD [/p][p]I'm giving a FREE album download to each donation of £5 or more :).
