Unfortunately it’s time to give up on the 1,000kms target for the year.
I was already “behind the curve” as they say going into November, but I was determined to give it a really good go. By the 11th I’d already done over 65kms and was 13kms over my required “run-rate”, but then it went downhill from there. I had a week in London, a week being ill and then a week in New York. None of which were conducive to exercising.
In the end I managed just under 90kms for the month – but not the 140+ I needed to keep on track. And now I’ve left myself too much to do in December (just under 200kms to hit the 1,000kms target – when I haven’t passed 100kms in any other month).
So it’s time to be realistic and call it a day. I’ll still exercise in December, but I won’t care about the kms so much as the individual goal. And I won’t set this challenge for next year either. In the end I’ll need to do some different training to achieve my challenges for next year – not all of it will be distance related, I’ll also need to do strength and speed work.
So I hit one goal for this blog a year early, but missed out on the other one.
