With an early start this morning, I had met my November month goal of 70km by 6.30am. And beaten it by a bit more by the time I cleared off the treadmill to make way for the wave of morning people vying for the equipment.
It feels good. To meet the goal, with one day to spare.
Regardless of the fact that I started strong, but then life (read: laziness) happened and my progress slowed.
It’s the last night of October which not only means there’s a tempting bowl of Freddos and toffee lollies sitting by my front door, but I have to tally up my running total for the month. Because at the beginning of the month I set myself a goal. 100km. By 31 October.
Honestly… I can’t have done more than 50km in the whole month. 6 of those were yesterday.
I know why, too. I’ve been distracted and haven’t been getting on the treadmill or outside nearly enough. 100km was very ambitious. I knew that when I set the goal, but I didn’t think I would be that far off.
But I’m not giving up! For November, I will set another goal. But I won’t be so hard on myself (some call it being more realistic).
SO: During November I’m challenging myself to clock up 70km.
If I accomplish that, I’ll bump it up for December.
Sorry all, it’s been a week since I last updated – not like me at all!
A lot’s been happening here, but all will be back on track soon – but until then (and because I’m too lazy to write a proper post), here’s some bullet points to help fill some of those gaps.
Alcohol. There has been a lot. But today’s been a day of (much needed) sobriety.
The Boyfriend’s now The Flatmate until he finds another flat.
Which means that the trip we had planned for the end of the year is now off.
So I’m going to rock on over for a whole month in the US instead.
The trip is going to be awesome (more to come).
I haven’t been keeping up with my running. This gives me a sad face. I will not reach my goal of 100km by 17 October. See bullet points 1 & 2, above (I’ve been lazy).
However, 100km in one month is still a very achievable goal. That I will achieve. So my one month starts from midnight tonight (1 October – 31 October). Eat dirt, running shoes!
I’ve spent the afternoon making my team mates mini bacon & egg pies for our celebratory morning tea tomorrow. 5 years old tomorrow! (It’s an accountant joke).
Aaaaaaaaaand falling down stairs gives carpet burn, apparently. So I’ve been walking around for the last day with some funky red-coloured elbows. Don’t be jealous. (Thankfully this had nothing to do with the first bullet point. Or the second).
