How are we all doing? It has been nearly a month since I last wrote which is almost unheard of. I can only blame life.
I am also nearly a week late with the roundup of my May Personal Challenge and the start of my challenge for June. This is mostly because of a cat who decided to start having seizures and trips to emergency vets. And, well, life.
So, I have decided to do one post to review last month and start this month.
Having trained for the Sport Relief (6) mile in March, I then stopped running altogether. Turns out I’m not very good at motivating myself and need to have a training plan and goal at the end of it. So, I duly signed up for the Race for Life 10k in June. It still took me a couple of weeks to actually leave the sofa, but I did manage the grand total of 4 runs totalling running/staggering 10.12 miles in May. It didn’t help that I chose to resume my training just as we enjoyed our two week summer. I may or may not have melted.
Anyhoo I’m taking that as a success.
And now to June.
In October a Man With A Van brought me all the things I was inheriting from my Granny’s house. In the van he also had stuff that my mum was getting rid of and was taking to the tip. One of those things was a chair we used to have that belonged to some distant great aunt. The seat had been a tapestry, which I think my mum has kept. I always loved that chair so I rescued it from the back of the van. It has sat in the corner of our bedroom gathering dust ever since.
A couple of weeks ago I brought myself the tools I need to fix it. All I need to do now is actually fix it.
And now it’s over to you. Did you set yourself a personal challenge for May? If you fancy joining in with one for June, feel free. The more the merrier! 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.
