My New Year Resolutions For 2015.
After swearing for a long time that I’d never make any New Year resolutions, I’ve decided to do things a little differently this year. Here are my resolutions for 2015. Not all of them are necessarily fitness related.
- To not die in 2015.
- To run around London in an attempt to find my way around the place. I want to get back to where I was in August 2013 where I was almost ready for shorter ultramarathon distances.
- To nod and say hello to all runners, cyclists, walkers, and dog walkers that actually keep their animal on the lead. I reserve the right to shout FUCK OFF at any owners who let their animals run at me.
- To continue to live every day as if it’s my last but without the paranoia of actually thinking it FUCKING IS.
- To live in another country even if it’s only for a month. Late last year I was thinking about a month in Cheb, Czech Republic. I’ll probably use Airbnb to find short term rentals. To give you an idea of the places you can rent and stay for the month visit this link. I’m not going back to Las Vegas next year. For the same price of that trip I could easily live in Portugal for two months. I want to start learning German again too. I haven’t learnt any since school but I started this year by prank calling German bars on Skype in an attempt to further my skills.
- To stop taking any of the nasty shit in my head seriously. And to never drink alcohol to try to drown out that nasty shit.
- To run 2,000 miles altogether in 2015. I want to be back in “race shape” by March.
- To buy an Oyster travel pass every single week whilst I’m in London. From November onwards last year I isolated myself to Tottenham and really lost my way.
- To go down to Brighton more for weekends and return to work on the train on a Monday morning. I didn’t do this enough last year but when I did I was great. especially after the 100k (I hated thinking about how fucking far it was between London and Brighton).
- To publish a limited edition run of the book on paperback and sell them through this website.
- To update this blog at least 3 times a week for most of the year. 2014 was a shit year for my blogging when arguably I had a lot of shit to talk about.
- To be able to look at myself in the mirror on a Sunday morning and think “I’m 100% sure I didn’t shit in a coal bunker or sock drawer last night”.
