So it’s been over two years since I did my first interview with the ever lovely Alex Crockford – and it very much was an interview (see at the bottom for the originl interview) and then Alex putting me through a bit of a workout, roll forward to 2019…

I’ve subsequently met up with Alex a few times over the last two years from his meet up in Hyde Park, as part of Team Fitbit at last year’s Adidas City Run in Shoreditch, and being at the amazing fitness weekend he ran in January 2018 amongst other things – so Alex and I arranged to meet up again and have a proper catch-up covering all manner of things;Read More »
