[Obligatory egocentric end of year post.]
It’s drawing to the end of 2015, and what have I achieved?
I’ve run. Two half marathons, a couple of 10K races (not that I’m particularly competitive) and several Parkruns.
I’ve worked. I’m happy to report I have a contract working in a job I love and I’m very close to six months in.
I’ve played some brilliant music. Mostly in the company of talented colleagues who enjoyed it as much as I did.
Earlier this year I wrote a post outlining five key aims. I’ve accomplished them all to differing extents. Overall, I’d give 2015 7/10 I think.
The same aims apply to 2016:
- More family time
- Enjoy more exercise
- Play more music
- Read more books
- Remember the highs
I’ve already picked up the second again. After a few months of less activity and not minding too much about my diet, I’m back in harness to tackle a big run in the summer. I did two miles this morning and apart from the odd twinge in my ankle I think it’ll be OK. The beer will be the next thing to go I suspect, and maybe I’ll cut down on the food a bit to help, and be quite a bit fitter by July.
Have a safe and pleasant weekend, and enjoy the new year. Cheers!
