Philips #HealthyHabitSwap...

{Philips #HealthyHabitSwap review/campaign}.

My New Years Resolution goals are going surprisingly well.

I am really enjoying running again and love working out at the gym when I have some spare time. I particularly love the spinning classes. Getting to push yourself really hard, knowing you have had a good workout once you have finished.

Running is very slowly but surely starting to feel easier again, just my pace I want to work on now. I want to knock off 5 minutes on my Parkrun time this year. To get back to my PB; Which was one of my goals for last year, but that is a whole different story!! 

Being part of a running club definitely helps to push myself more.
