YOU may not know it but 2 April is World Autism Awareness Day. This is also the day I with Peter Howson will begin a 300-mile walk across Scotland on behalf of Scottish Autism to help raise awareness and understanding about this condition (and hopefully lots of money in the process).

We begin on Wednesday 2nd April in Aberdeen and will finish in Ayr on Thursday 24th April 300 miles later. My role is to provide physical therapy needs to Peter and the team during our walk as well as maximizing the fundraising effort. Please read Peters comments below and donate if you can.

The Edinburgh Marathon 2014 Event is coming soon 24th and 25th May and I'm sure we all know someone,family or friend who is running in this for a good cause. In The "run-up" to this wonderful and incredibly demanding task i tend to have clients looking for a sports massage to help prepare for the big day. Massage is a wonderful way to help someone prepare for an event like the Edinburgh Marathon. It helps the muscle tissue relax before the event and therefore can psychologically help in the mental preparation for the marathon.

Chances are at some time in your life you’ve made a New Year’s resolution — and then broken it. This year, stop the cycle of resolving to make change and then not following through. If your resolution is to take better care of yourself and get healthy, you will have a much better year if your resolution sticks. Here are 10 tips to help you get started. 

 1.  Be Realistic

The surest way to fall short of your goal is to make your goal unattainable. For instance, resolving to NEVER eat your favorite food again is setting you up to fail. Instead, strive for a goal that is attainable, such as avoiding it more often than you do now.

Eusebio E-mail

Plenty of better writers than I will be penning tributes to Eusébio. Devour them, understand them and remember Eusébio. Go on to Youtube and find videos of the man. Admire him. Remember him. Be thankful he kicked a ball in the sport we loved.

All too often when someone dies there is a rush to flood them in superlatives. The mediocre are often elevated to mythic. We see ''legend' or 'all-time great' attached to those who were, in life, did not meet that criteria.

Whilst this is understandable and, to an extent, necessary what it means is that when a real titan - like Eusébio - passes we don't have words to fit. Words like legend have become so overused we glaze over when we see them. If everyone is a legend then no one is.

Sciatica, spasms, lower back pain and spinal mobilisation

Blog Kindly Provided By Fiona Russell of Fiona@Outdoors

I suffer lower back pain on and off – but mostly off, thankfully. I try to maintain a strong core and I find that running keeps my back in fairly good working order. Yoga is a great aid to flexibility and I have now also introduced strength and conditioning sessions to my weekly workouts. But there is little you can do to prevent the back pain caused by a minor accident.

Arctic-like temperatures and hazard winter conditions can be the scourge of Scotland at times. Such reports demand special attention of outdoor fitness enthusiasts.

Winter Weather

Injuries due to overexposure in cold temperature have risen in recent years due to increased participation in outdoor winter activities such as ice skating, skiing, snowboarding, and in all-season walking, jogging, and cycling. Short of relocating to Hawaii and taking up surfing, knowledge of potential hazards and prevention during cold weather is the key to keeping us safe during our outdoor fitness activities.
