Whilst I love writing articles for my readers sometimes other people say things just a little bit better than me! Or at least are better placed to say them! So here’s my round-up of the blog, stories and articles you might have missed of the last couple of weeks or I just think you might find useful!

Technical Takeaway
Well I am currently training in Hawaii so it makes sense for this weeks technical takeway to have a Hawaiian theme. Although you’ll have to wait to see if I managed to grab any mat time with Alex or the other stars from the TV show!
