Fat Lad: bliadhna mhath ur*

So another year done, another wrinkle around my eyes. *shrug* meh.

I did all my panicking about age when I turned 30 in October.

Now, I’ve never been one for resolutions. Why start something in the New Year when you could just get off your arse and get it started now. But, this new year I’m going to try it. Not resolutions, but goals. So inspired by Trio last year I’ve got the following in mind.

  1. Blatantly stolen from Trio: Run at least once a week. I’m going to start the C25K challenge next week. Before the last job sucked all the fun and joy out of life I actually really got into this and started to reap the rewards. A break from it meant it hurt to start up again and put me off so I’m looking to the C25k for a more structured return. Let’s see…
  2. Another one stolen from Trio: cycle 2000 off road miles in the year. Yeah I know there are riders out there cranking out crazy mileage but well, I have a job and a wife to keep in the manner she has become accustomed to… I managed to get 1390.72 miles in this year which is a little bit up on last year.
  3. Little bit kookier this one. I want to ride with one or more of my Twitter followers each month of the year. I know you’re all spread across the UK (and much further afield) and it will be cool to spread my MTB wings as it were and ride somewhere new. Or, as always, there’s a comfy bed and a warm bacon butty for any rider who fancies the MTB Mecca of Morley 😉

There we go, that’s my not quite so lofty plans for the upcoming year. So to you and yours Happy New Year, I hope you are a tenth as happy as Mrs Fat Lad and I!

    I have yet to plan my aims for next year but the running one might be there.

    I like the twitter rides one, could lead to some fantastic rides!
