So, here we are, March already. It’s a day late, but I’ll forgive it, especially if it brings plenty of spring sunshine.
I kind of need March to bring good weather for this month’s challenge. For those of you who have read my blog for a while and/or follow my witterings on twitter, I have been running for a while now. Not long after I started last August, I signed up for the Sport Relief Mile. Only, for some unknown reason, I decided I would go for the 6 mile option.
What was I thinking?
I kind of lost my running mojo over Christmas and have been trying very hard over the last few weeks to get it back. I’ve been going three nights a week for the last few weeks, but for some reason I cannot get past 3 miles. I think it’s purely psychological, and I have a new training plan and route to try and kick my ass start my training.
The fact remains that I have three weeks and three days to be able to run three whole miles further than I can right now.
I need a lie down.
Want to join in? You are very welcome. Just set yourself a goal for the month – your very own Personal Challenge. At the beginning of the month, decide what it is that you want to achieve over the next thirty days. It could be anything: losing a couple of pounds, getting the weeding done, making something, learning a new skill. Whatever you like. Putting my management hat on for a second: make sure it is something you can actually achieve in a month. Be SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Time-based). Write a post about what you want to achieve and why. If you link back to my post then others can join in too – you can use the badge if you like (the code is over on the right there).
Make sure you put the link to your post on the linky list at the bottom of mine (it’s open for two weeks). Use the opportunity to seek advice from/help out/support fellow bloggers. Then spend the next month attempting to achieve your goal. At the end of the month I’ll be back to let you know how I have got on with my personal challenge and there will be another linky for you to share your success. So come back and tell us how you got on and we can all give you a pat on the back.
