All the Talk About Fitness and Health! And My Current H&F Agenda

At the moment, I am seeing lots and lots of stuff related to health and fitness.  And when I say 'stuff', I mean advertisements, articles, news stories, retail sales and commentary.  It is the time of year when everyone is thinking about their health and fitness goals.  Whether it's trying to stick to a new year's resolution, or planning your races for 2015, most people have health and fitness on their current agenda.

At the moment, I have a couple of things on my health and fitness agenda:

1. Plan my 2015 race calendar

Most important.  I want to really try to aim to get a half marathon PR this year, so that means planning my races.  Here are some of the thoughts I have on potential races this year.

2. Plan my 2015 training

To get a PR, I need a kick ass training program to build up my running and strength over the year, peaking for races, and not burning out.  Sounds easy enough!  Actually, it doesn't even sound easy.  It's something I'm working on.  I might refer back to some of these resources to help me make my plan.

3. Develop a mini strength routine (5-8 minutes)

I was thinking that a little can go a long way - both in life, and in exercise.  On the one hand, a little dark chocolate can totally fulfill your sweet cravings.  On the other, doing 5-8 minutes of targeted strength exercises have to be of benefit, right?  I want to come up with a mini routine for abs, arms and legs that I can do each night to hopefully help push my muscle strength and toning to the next level.

4. Find new healthy recipes

This one will kind of be ongoing, but I really want to find a few new, healthy recipes that can be part of my regular rotation.  I think both you and I are getting a little sick of seeing pictures of tuna rice salad and porridge!

I also thought I'd share some of the good / interesting / positive health and fitness articles I've seen lately.  These are articles that I've read and have found at least some aspect to be informative and pertinent to my health and fitness agenda.

The one advertisement that I'm dying to see is a 50% off sale on Asics Kayanos.  I haven't come across it yet, but let me know if you do!  A girl can live in hope, right?

What is on your health and fitness agenda at the moment?
