goal setting

General aches and pains are part and parcel of life but they come and go. It would be unrealistic to expect to be able to avoid them if we are honest given the many different ways that they can come about. From getting so busy at work that getting sufficient rest is an issue to stumbling whilst running for the bus. These tend to come and go. Work calms down, you get more rest and don’t notice the minor niggles anymore. When they do persist what can be done about it?

New year resolutions can be great things to have or they can be bad based on, IMO, if you have put a bit of thought into them and made realistic choices or not. I'm going to run a sub 20 min 5k when your current best is 25 min is a big ask. Similarly, I'm going to add 50kg to my squat as just asking for trouble. Both of these goals are do-able depending on your experience but they are at the far end of what you can possibly expect to achieve and really on everything going to plan, and nothing ever goes completely to plan.
