    Looks like Ben's doing 1/4 squats with 140kg at 14.00.
    Check out Ben's spinal erector muscles at 17.10!

    Ange, do you have any videos of these training runs in your vault? Could you possibly put together a download for the store?
    Many thanks, as always
    Nick

    Yes, This is Sue Wilson.
    Sue was the only sports psychologist Charlie liked. He felt most of the psychologists caused more harm than good.
    Sue continues to practice sport psychology.
    I really like her as well and she helped me just before I started running really well.

    Remember Nick, Charlie did not like video taping anything and he focused on what he saw then and there. He was not a fan at all of watching video and I see why. I must prefer seeing something live. He taught me what to look for and what I am looking at. For some reason video distorts and I am not able to see things on video that I have been able to see when I watch someone. It's not to say video is not useful as I know many of you like it. That's fine.
    Unbelievably I have almost ZERO footage of my entire athletic career.
    Also remember that we never filmed clients or took any photos of anyone we worked with. We felt grateful for those who took the chance coming to work with us and we did not want to cause them any harm what so ever by showing photos of them with us.
    We went to Hawaii with Tim and Marion and have not one photo of all of us together . It was all business.
    I do however have the footage of them running at the track. I'd like to post it but I want to speak to Tim and or Marion about it first. I tried calling Marion but I've not been successful. She called and left a very nice message May 2010 but I had not picked it up for months after .
    i also recently found a cool piece of footage with Charlie working with Natasha and Dima and Sophie for their starts. I will speak to them about posting this as well.
