Update, end of October

An update of sorts to my last post ("Bummed"). I had my moment of self misery and doubt. Loathing in Durham NC came and went, time to look forward and set new goals for the new month.

As I write this, I am preparing to go for a 2 mile walk. No big deal, right? Welp, to tell ya, it kinda is in the fact that, I am one mile away from surpassing my most awful month in distance walking (February 25 miles). And I am rather psyched about it.

Sure, in the last two weeks I have walked 25 miles mostly, to make up for the lack of walking in the first two weeks of Oct, but so what. The walking got done, that is what is important.

Is it any less of an accomplishment to walk 30 miles in 30 days versus 30 miles in 15 days?

Would it be any less if it were 30 miles in a single day? Well, that would be amazing in and of itself, but still! lol

I am going to surpass, in my mind my worst, walking record and have October reside safely and firmly in the middle of the pack of all of my walking accomplisments for the last 11 months.

Which brings up another point I wish to share... I am 3 weeks away from observing my 12th month at this walking adventure I have set for myself.

According to my "track my walk" app, I am over 400 miles walked  for the 11 month period! WOW and whoa baby!

November 27th is my targeted anniversary date. I have 29 days to go... I wonder if I can pull out 60 miles in 27 days? That's an interesting challenge I will have to look into more.

I like to set goals for myself, but realistic goals... with a little extra push, a little extra umph to push myself.

Keep in mind of course that in July I cleared 73 miles in that month. 60 is not a ridiculous number, especially if I have averaged 50 miles in a given month up to that point.

Granted Sept and Oct have not been my best months in walking (averaging about 27 miles each month) but time to get back in the saddle, get refocused. 

Time to go for a walk.... hope you all have a good day!



PS, I am feeling much better now
