March Goal - How did I do?

Thursday, March 29, 2012

My goal for the month of March was to ride my bike 100 miles. I haven't ridden since October of last year so I thought that was a good goal to shoot for.

Did I do it? Well, no. I did ride 71.5 miles though and considering everything else thatwas going on this month, I still think I did pretty good.

At first I was really disappointed in myself because I fell short, but then I started reflecting. What were the circumstances?

Well, for one, the weather was much nicer than normal which meant my gardening chores had to start sooner than normal. Since I have a lot of flowerbeds that's a good chunk of time right there.

Also, I had two events to get ready for: The first being a girls weekend away. It's not as simple as packing some clothes and taking off, it also involves preperation in packing papercrafting/stamping supplies, making roomie gifts, etc. The second, my upcoming vacation to Spain.

I've had to work a bit extra to get things ready for me to be out of the office. I have no back-up so it's quite imperative that certain things be in place.

Given the circumstances, I think it's fair that I congratulate myself for completing what I did. I'm not sure what my goal will be next month but I know that whatever it is, I will be successful as long as I'm making progress.

    I'd say you did a good job--going from not riding since October to over 70 miles is great!
