A strong start cut short…
By the 7th of January I’d done 39km, a pretty solid effort for a week (I’d surpass 2000km this year if I kept up that pace!).
However, through a combination of work and a lovely seasonal flu virus my total as off today remains at that 39km mark. Not awful, sure, but not where I’d like to be. To get back on track with my initial target for the end of the month I need to put up another 61km in the next 16 days which is probably going to be pushing it.
My thinking on starting this challenge was to target 100km per month or 25km per week to help ensure I can reach the overall goal. Doing so would enable me to hit 1000km in 40 weeks, giving me one week off every month if needed. This seems to have been proven fairly sensible so far given that I’ve had to take January’s free week off already. No excuses now until February 1st (at least after I’m fully recovered anyway!).
