  • August; Went to my uncles paralympic torch bearer walk, read about it here
  • October; Ran my first half marathon in a time of 2:01:28, read about it here
  • October; In order to achieve a goal I set mid 2012 which was to put on some weight I had to reduce my running. This graph really shows how much I’ve cut down. From running as much as 5x a week and 100kms a month down to once a week and 20kms a month. This is a big achievement mentally for me, as I love to run lots but proved to myself I dont have to do it everyday. I havent actually put on much weight as the weights I am lifting have turned fat into muscle so its all balanced out and I’m now focusing on weights 3x a week and aiming to run 2x a week.
