As it's new years eve I have been thinking a lot about my new year resolutions for 2012. I know many people think new year resolutions are a waste of time and are made to be broken - but I think it's good to have some idea of what you would like to achieve in life... Continue Reading →
The last few weeks have been crazy busy. I've organised three events in three weeks - I'm two events in just one left next week hooray! Problem with being so busy is my training has suffered.

So I am going into my second month of P90x and maintaining my running two to three times a week and I will see how it goes, however I think the lunacy back to back workouts need to reduce in order to keep my sanity!
I am enjoying doing P90x and managing two running sessions a week and it's going well. I managed to get up to 15.5 on the treadmill in my speed session last week which was a first for me, so the plyometrics and the weight work is working, making me a stronger runner - awesome.
