In wrapping up November Phil from Couch Potato to 10K has been honored with guest posting a summary of that months challenge; that good read awaits you HERE. For myself, I came up short on hitting my November goal; I walked/jogged 32 of the 35 mile goal I set so I completed 91% of my goal. No excuse for missing 100% other than I waned in planning my exercise as well as I had been. Oh I suppose I could say that I allowed other factors like hunting and holidays to occupy my mind and hinder my attention to exercise. They certainly did, but that is just an excuse, and not one I can accept.
Still, In October I did 25 miles. Thus November was an improvement month to month. December is here and my goal is 40 miles. I have no excuse not to hit it. I am off work the last two weeks of the year and if I don't hit it, well then I deserve to have my blogging license revoked.
These changes I am making are not as difficult as they are painful at times to adopt. They are for a lifetime and I need act like I understand that. One such way is planning my exercise into my days/weeks no matter what else is going on within my environment at the moment. Remember that word; environment. I'll be touching on it more this coming weekend when I weigh-in next.
So I wrap up November for myself with this lesson / reminder...
- Plan to succeed not matter what my/your environment may be
- Accept nothing less of myself/ourselves than giving my/our all to this plan
- Improve one battle at a time, one day at a time, with unwavering faith in myself/ourselves
- Necessary, recognize that this mission is necessary and embrace that it will never end even when I/we become great at that which I/we aspire to be
