Happy New Year!

Well, its that time again. Resolutions....

1) Train for the White Peak Swift Half Marathon in Matlock on 19 May 2007.

Copying Steve Runner from Phedippidations podcast, I'm trying a modified Hanson training plan, which has over 500 miles to run over the next 20 weeks. Starting at 6 mi/week and peaking at 37 mi/week in week 17. It is an ambitious plan, with almost twice the weekly mileage of the WWH plan we used last Oct, so I'm going to allow myself to miss one session per week....but just one.

2) Make sure I use my leave time for adventures.

Billy is keen on purchasing a camper-van, so I need to stop using my leave to putter around the house and the pottery studio.

3) Eat sensibly to lose 10 pounds.

Hopefully, with all the running, I can skip rigorous dieting, but I still need to watch portion size, skip Hagen-Daz and avoid refined carbs and sugar. (Now 125 lbs and BMI 23. Target 115.)

Toni! It's Lili Bell! Loved your card and your blogsite! I lost your address for the past 2 years so thankfully I can contact you this way. Wow what a trip you all took. Haven't gone to India but my big recent excitement is that I'm learning to cook Indian cuisine! NOt quite as exciting, ok... I'll want to email you with more stuff that's happening. My email is below. Make sure to tell me your email and we'll regain our connection (once again!) Our love to Billy, Nick and Ally!
