Club Craig - 2015-1
Where did January go?
January is almost over. Where did it go?
Then again, I look back at what I've achieved this month and I must say it's been quite a good month for me.
The old saying "It never rains, but it pours" could never be more true than with my January. It looks like February is going to be more of the same.
The cold is starting to wear me thin.
Yes, I'm trying to be as active as possible during this years winter. I do love winter. However, I've found the last couple of days to be a little hard to bare.
I actually turned around earlier that I had planned on Monday morning. I guess I should stop heading into the mountains before dawn in Winter. There was sleet and there was a bit of wind.
I do have some rollers that I can use to ride indoors. But, I do find it to be quite boring. I guess I just need to set it up in front of a Television or something. I just really enjoy going out and seeing the scenery pass by.
However, have a look at the evening sky. How can this just not be fantastic!!!
Have a great day.
Getting closer to something concrete
I'm getting closer to a set of concrete goals for this year. I'm thinking more in the personal/health area right now, but business and family will be coming soon.
I've been challenged to running 2015 kilometers in 2015. It's double the distance I ran last year, but given the amount of time that I had spent with this damn calf injury last year, I have a feeling I can probably do it, or at least give it a good shake.
Another of my goals this year was to find more mountains to climb whilst riding. My commute is extremely flat, so I need to go out of my way to find the inclines. I started this on the 2nd of January having climbed Mt Bisan twice and the mountain on the way to Omiko beach in Komatsushima in the same ride. I shall keep looking.
I also want to be able to climb up to Kakurinji. I can get half way before the incline just goes crazy. Actually it's my arms more than my legs that hurt, so I guess push-ups are the way to go.
This picture is from the top of the west of Bizan from the 2nd of January.
Still working on those resolutions
It's now 5 days into the new year and I still haven't decided on what I really want to achieve as my resolutions.
I know I want to do more exercise, and eat healthier, but that's been the same thing every year.
I'll give myself a couple of more days and then I'll make the decisions. 2015 is going to be the year.
