Well here's an update for you. 300km is going to be hard. Really. Really. Hard.
Initially, I thought 300km would be a good challenge, on my average last year, I was clocking between 200 and 250km per month and I'm cool with that, but I wanted to push myself a bit harder and I had a few months of fairweather attitude to my bike as well, so the averages are a tiny bit skewed by quieter points in the year.
Things I forgot- wind. I
Yeah, we're a third of the way through the month. I'm a bit disappointed.
I did do some number crunching yesterday though, and worked out that if I cycled to work every single work day for the rest of the month, I will hit the target by a whisper. It doesn't allow much margin for error- days that I need to be elsewhere after work and such like, but I'm still feeling determined that I want to hit the 300km mark.
I'm intrigued to see how people find the numerous goals they have set themselves in the New Year period- whether they still feel they're golas are achievable or relevant, if you're already on a downer about 2014.
It's not been the easiest of starts here at HQ. between re-negotiating our tenancy and having 3 new members of staff start work in 10 days has been a challenge. That said, there's a certain sense of deserving that accompanies my glass of wine tonight.
Happy Friday all.
