I like your resolutions.
Happy New Year! This week we’re talking about that old chestnut ‘New Year resolutions’; have we made any or not?
The last time I made any New Year resolutions was back in 1995. I was 38, quite overweight, and felt dreadful. I was determined that 1996 was the year that I got back into shape. I was also suffering from migraines, which caused disturbances of vision.
I started walking the 2 miles around my village every day, and occasionally breaking into a trot. The subsequent shin splints I suffered were very painful, and stopped me jogging properly for months. By the time spring came around they had gone, and I was able to jog the 2 miles every morning before I went to work. It meant me getting up at 5am to do some stretches beforehand, but I’m an early riser, and it was only 45 minutes earlier than I normally got up anyway.
