One Little Goal – July

Running Shoes


June totally kicked my ass. I’m just looking at my diary for June and there’s something on nearly every day – it was busy for sure. It feels like everyone came out of hibernation and suddenly there are so many things to do and people to see. I am trying to embrace all the busy-ness right now and fill my life up to the brim, because I don’t want to miss out on the invites and opportunities. I have massive FOMO, so a slight lack of sleep is totally worth it – especially because it means I get to do fun things and spend time with the people I love. Which meant that my goal to be present in June was perfect – I think I managed it pretty well. My phone stayed in my bag and I committed to really enjoying the time I spend with everyone. It was lovely.

My running though? I got nowhere near my goal of 45k total distance – weeks packed with social events gave me the perfect excuse not to get out there and actually do the running. When I did go though? I really enjoyed it. More than I thought I would. I’ve found my running rhythm; I go in the evening when it’s still warm but not unbearable, after dinner so I have the energy to run at a reasonable pace and I stick on a good podcast to distract me from the boredom. It’s working for me. I’ve found a route that I like – it’s just under 5k so my goal is to go on that run 12 times in July. That’s not that many times. I’m making it a priority – I’m going to book it into my calendar now so I can’t get out of it. This is happening.

    My goal for July is to cycle 100k on 20th July. I’ve got others but they will wait. That goal is to complete a challenge, so it has to be done on that date. Even if it kills me…Good luck with the running!

  • hey i’m coming over from hayley’s link up! love that you have one big goal, broken down into smaller daily/weekly chunks. and seriously, sometimes after making goals, we realize other things are actually higher priority (like spending time with people). so – good for you. 🙂
