I only made one resolution for this year, and it was to stop resolving to do things. I did not meet any of my set resolutions or goals for last year (for various reasons), and it has left me feeling a bit hopeless about 2015. My win to loss ratio for last year looks pretty dismal, and so I have decided that I do not really want to reflect on 2014, but look forward to this year.
I know I say this every year but I want to do more running. The last two years my running has been pretty up and down, due in large part to the unending pressure of finishing a PhD and raising a toddler (on my own, for the last part). This year, my circumstances are slightly different, and so I hope to prioritise running a little bit more. I have already started organising things differently in my life to accommodate this (and, generally, a more positive lifestyle) including swapping around the days on which Neon Toddler is with me (mainly, in this regard, is the switch of Friday to Saturday nights toddler-free). The last 18 months have been a bit of a whirlwind of negativity and downward looking, and I need to change that around for myself. And, I know that running and being active will be a big part of that.
So, as for goals for 2015, here they are:
Run. Enjoy running. Don’t worry about anything else. (And, maybe sneak a few races in…)
