The challenge I have set for myself is to run #5kadayinMay - well when I say run it began somewhat painfully, and, can only be described as detested interval training to get my fitness back to a normal level.

Vebruary is now over, and to be honest, hasn't been as time consuming and painful as I'd originally imagined.

It's been a funny old week, the first of the New Year and one with many challenges... This week was the first anniversary of my dad's death; I'm still in utter disbelief that I'll never get to see him again and am still struggling to accept this fact even now.
