Thought i'd start a topic completely non car related.

Do any of you take part in any fitness?

Whether for new year resolutions or any other aim/goal?

Whats your biggest accomplishment so far?

I suppose i better start too:

Well im training all going well to join the Royal Marines (fingers crossed)

I train 6 times a week at the gym.

I run every other night (recovering from a stress fracture), moving up to running 6 times a week soon. I've ran 17 miles in the last week so far.

Biggest accomplishment was running my first half marathon, nothing official, just got bored after work, and im one of those that once i start running i just keep going.

I also am hoping in the near future to arrange to run 3 10k runs on 3 consecutive days for charity.... so hopefully that will happen.

So thats my fitness really.

Im also open to general advice both to give and receive if people have any?
