I get over-enthusiastic and sign up for all sorts of stuff

COMMENT: All agencies must to held to account for Anne Savidge’s tragic death

Have your say

I really need to stop drinking. It seems that a glass of wine or two with my friends gets me over-enthusiastic and signing up for all sorts of stuff.

Last year it was a triathlon, which I’ve yet to complete, and which some readers of this column won’t let me forget about.

This year I seem to have volunteered to run another half-marathon, this time in March, when my running shoes just want to hibernate.

I suppose, though, as well as planning next year’s holidays and visits to friends and far-flung family, it’s also good to get a couple of fitness challenges in the diary.

The trouble is, it may mean a month off the sauce, back on the protein and running in the cold, cold air.

Still, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, eh?
