According to the American Psychological Association the three most popular New Year’s resolutions each year are to lose weight, quit smoking and exercise regularly. I’m not particularly original and I don’t smoke, so as usual I am spending the first couple of weeks of January planning my training in order to become some sort of sporting god by the end of the year. It won’t happen, obviously.
Challenges this year will hopefully include both Milton Keynes half marathons and perhaps a triathlon. A new one for me though is rowing. I’ve signed up to enter Concept 2’s online leaderboard and monthly challenge league in the hope of keeping me honest and in the gym on a reasonably regular basis. Unfortunately their league season runs from September to July so I’ve missed the first few events, but hopefully I can post a time for each of the remaining seven events.
