Another great read. Apologies for posting a few 'negative' articles in a row, but I think that they are definitely worth reading. As we move forward in our understanding about skill development, health and wellbeing, the importance of child, adult (and horse) welfare will start to have a greater impact of what is deemed good practise in sports coaching. Great sporting success needs to support the athlete's lifelong health and well-being rather than compromise it.

When I read about how environments affect horses and their need to have some agency (autonomy), I also think about how children are impacted by the same things in their environments, particularly sporting ones.

I really enjoyed this blog. It amazes me how many women I still meet who mistakenly believe that they will look like Arni if they lift any weight. They avoid strength training and just focus on pounding out the cardio and stretching. Strength training is incredible for your health and wellness as a woman and something I really recommend (despite that fact that I really don't like being indoors).

Can’t wait to watch this. As child I dreamed of doing the Paris Dakar on a motorbike and as an adult I had a bike until only a few years ago. Although I never did race it still absolutely fascinates me. https://t.co/YzdYB7zboi

I really enjoyed this podcast. Definitely, one to share. I wish I could get people to understand that stressed horse brains fail to learn anything either! https://t.co/yc07Bdtwus

"Extensive research shows that a stressed brain fails to learn anything productively. It can’t concentrate, it can’t remember. It isn’t generating new brain cells – there’s no way it’s attaining greatness"

I would have loved to have listened to this presentation from Stu. The learning design garden is a great analogy of the different approaches that coaches can take. https://t.co/AKwBj7haii

Listening to @stu_arm share his garden analogy about coaching and the route that coaches take. Worth noting that it’s how and when coaches use different methods but crucially for me, the WHY! Variety is what matters. #CoachingSummit https://t.co/yPTKgbGl5l

Another brilliant podcast from @stu_arm

I'm not feeling well today so am tucked up in bed with a hot water bottle. On the plus side, at least I am getting a chance to catch up on missed podcasts. https://t.co/PvgguIGNXT

I've just started writing the last 'Becoming skilful' article in this series. If you have not read them yet, I hope you'll take a little time to do so. Enjoy 😊

If you have read them all, I hope you have enjoyed them so far and are looking forward to the final instalment. https://t.co/kDkyisvfOI
