I had a goal to run 125km in the month of January. I came up 10km short!
Damn. So close.
It’s frustrating to me, because I keep setting goals that I know I can reach, I just seem to not push hard enough or I sabotage myself somehow or I dunno, some days there literally is no time when I work 16-24 hours in a day…
no time is a legit excuse because
1- I can’t go for a run when I’m working, unless I get to take my kids to the gym which doesn’t always happen.
2- I need sleep too! sleep is hugely important when you work 90 hours in a 5 day work week.
anyways 115km in a month is pretty decent as well considering there is so much snow on the ground that it’s actually dangerous to walk since it seems everyone is fed up with shovelling and take there sweat ass time to do it now. I did most at least 65 of those 115km on the treadmill and let me tell you I hate running on the treadmill.
My goal for February is to run 115km. I am going to work my butt of this week to get ahead of the running game as it always seems the 3rd week of the month is what screws me over. and really i think it will be Feb 11-17 when I work 90 hours which will be the hardest week for me to fit in running. I plan on doing dips, pushups, squats and abs while at work because I you can do that anywhere.
