I've been going out running now twice a week gradually building up the distance while improving my pace. I'm aiming for a consistent pace, not a fast time. If I can keep a consistent pace from start to finish and then improve that pace I'm doing good.
After 34 years on this planet, I finally get why people run. I mean, I always understood why people were running in the park or down the street but it was always accompanied with mockery. "That seems like a painful way to spend time."
Finally, after a year of being referred between various physios and consultants, I have had my final knee operation which has at long last fixed my damaged knee.
For the past, I don't know how many years I've had problems sleeping. Sometimes difficulty in getting to sleep, other times difficulty staying asleep. Even when I wake up thinking I've had a "good night" I am more tired, more drained and feel worse than when I went to bed.

Improving my self-confidence has been the single biggest improvement I have made this year. Higher confidence has enabled me to grow out from my comfort zone, try new things and meet new people.
Self-confidence is the difference between feeling unstoppable and feeling scared out of your wits. It's about being free from doubt and having the utmost belief in yourself and your abilities.
