Karl Henry: My five words for inspiration in 2014

Karl Henry

Believe. Run. Fit. Balance. Life. These are my five words for 2014. The five words that I write on the inside of my diary, ensuring that I see them every day, every week, every month and work towards creating them in the next 12 months.

By identifying them, making them visible and giving myself a target to work towards, it gives my year a focus. It gives me things to work towards when I look at my diary every day. It ensures I get out of bed with a purpose.

I have done this every year for the past 17 years and have found it powerful.

Try it for yourself. What are the five words that you identify for yourself this year? What is it you want to achieve?

Write them down and put them somewhere visible. This is focus. Believe in yourself and work towards these words.


Want to get the most out of your cardiovascular workouts? Add in some intervals.

Simply pick two speeds, one fast and one slow, and alternate between the two.

As you get fitter, increase the time you spend going fast and reduce the time going slow.
