BMF birthday

Published on August 21, 2011

* self-indulgent blog entry warning *

Today marks one year since I signed up for British Military Fitness and I can't believe how quickly time has passed since this tentative post after my first session.

Since then I don't think I have blogged specifically about BMF a great deal, so at a year on, it's probably time for a round up:
  • 365 days
  • 114 sessions of BMF
Resulting in:
  • Dropping from 13 stone (82.5kg/182lb) to 11 st 3 (71kg/157lb)
  • Running two 10k races (47:14 and 46:00)
  • Reducing my body-fat from 25% to 20%
  • Including the two races above, I've ran 135km, which I certainly couldn't do a year ago
  • Moving from the beginners group, into the intermediates and finally into the top group
This doesn't really tell the whole story though, as 
  • I've made some amazing friends through BMF…
  • …which has helped my social life in Bristol no end
  • I'm feeling more confident in myself as a result of being fitter and healthier
  • I know I can still be better and improve more
If you'd have asked me a year ago how long I thought I'd stick at BMF I would have probably given a "for a long as I do" type response, as by the time I got to the first session, I had already made my mind up that I was going to do it, enjoy it and stick at it, but none the less, I am still surprised that it's a year on and I feel like I have come a long, long way in that time.

So yeah. That's what I've been up to. I bloody love it.

    Thanks – have got the first 10k of next year on the calendar for early March and am hoping to get inside 45 by the Bristol 10k next May.
