Just get out there. Put on your trainers, start the process. Before you know it you'll have finished and smashed goals along the way. Running does not have to be tiresome, you can aim for PBs, or just keep the fat off. Running is a personal journey, that offers time to reflect, satisfaction, challenge and goals. Change up your training, do short, fast, long, slow, fartlek, speed, strength, hill, intervals. If you're racing, peak at the right times, you will struggle to maintain it at the top all year. We're IT professionals, not athletes, so just take care of yourselves. Do at least one thing every day, from squats to a long run, small changes can make a massive change over time! At the beginning of 2017, I can run 5k in 20:30, a half marathon in 1:40:40. The aim, is to get these down to 18:30 and 1:29:59 by the end of 2017. Watch this space, and the daily expletives of my journey.
