A new year is upon us and like almost everyone else on the planet I have made some New Year’s Resolutions, but unlike 90% of those people I plan on keeping my resolutions after the first week of January. Here are my resolutions:
- Lose more weight.
- Find a job.
- Write more often on my blog.
- Complete my first overseas race.
- Complete a marathon.
I have also set some running resolution goals:
- Sub6 minute Mile.
- Sub20 minute 5k.
- Sub35 minute 5 miles.
- Sub45 minute 10k.
- Sub1:25 10 miles.
- Sub1:40 half marathon.
I won’t be talking too much about my running escapades on this blog as I have set up its very own section just for that.
I saw the new year in in the company of some amazing friends in a pub around the corner from me. I wasn’t in the mood to celebrate because I was having a sulk about not training properly and not having a lot of money, but a late run and borrowing a few quid from a friend meant I was going to try and end the year on a positive note.
We ended up going back to Alison and Reiss’ place for more drinks and merriment, plus I got to play with their two dogs Lemmy and Lola, Lola is currently expecting puppies and I’m just as excited about their arrival as Alison and Reiss are!
As usual I was the last person standing and toddled off home at about 6am in the morning.
I am running the 2018 London Marathon to raise money for Livability UK in memory of my dad. If you can I'd appreciate any donation you can spare. http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/deansaliba
