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.
After all, it’s about progress – isn’t it?
