Becoming more active was one of my aims for 2019.
But it took me until the end of the year to do something about it. In November, I signed up to ‘Race At Your Pace’ to give me a goal to focus on…
In November, I clocked up over 75 miles by walking, and in December I completed over 100 miles as a combination of walking and running.
I never thought I would say this as I used to hate running…but now I’m starting to enjoy it?!
Am I planning on running a marathon?! Nope. Can I run for any great distance without needing to stop for air!? Nope, not yet. But am I feeling better about my physical and mental health because of running several times a week; yes, I think I am.
I don’t know what this year will bring, but I’m glad I didn’t wait until the new year to start a new challenge. New habits don’t have to begin on January 1st… You have 365 opportunities a year to make a change, and there is no better day than today…
