Welcome to 2015

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you spent NYE the way you wanted to and that you're full of enthusiasm for 2015.

It was so lovely to have some time out over Christmas and New Year. I still did a fair bit of running but found some nice chunks of time between socialising and eating where I could relax and recharge. For the last few years, rather than make resolutions, I've done Susannah Conway's Journalling exercise. It helps me to reflect sensibly on the past year and get some clarity on what I want for the coming year. Last year my word was possibility. This year it's soar. I associate a sense of freedom, excitement and ambition with that word and it gives me a little buzz so it felt like the right one.

Having said I don't make resolutions, I have made two this year.
1) Phone my friends more often
2) See more live music (especially locally)

In more general terms in the coming year I've decided that I want to work on my strength. I've been feeling a little sluggish since the beginning of December, which I put down to the number of chocolates and glasses of wine I've consumed. Whilst browsing my old photos I found these which are serving as my inspiration for the coming year. Though maybe without the anemia this time.
I will also be taking swimming lessons (in anticipation of future triathlons) and continuing to get coaching from Performance Coaching. I have 6 races booked and at least one more to be booked but no triathlons. If it stays like this then I'll be able to keep my promise to my mum about only entering 8 events (all be it a year late) and stand a better chance of performing well. I have 3 holidays booked and hopefully time and money enough for another couple of short city breaks. My current studies will finish in March but I'm considering taking a Triathlon Coaching qualification and thereby maintaining my status as eternal student.

Of course I'll be back to RunFitUK and trying to progress my own PT business. There are a few exciting opportunities on the horizon and I intend to make the most of them. I'll keep you up to date on all that as it unfolds.
