Running Stats November 2013

So comparing to October I ran 20 more kilometres, which I’m very happy about.  I finally felt like I got back into the running groove.  Getting some decent long runs in helped too.

I will admit I am actually missing the social aspect of the running club.  Running with other people really helps me to push myself that little bit more.

With it now being ‘officially’ Summer here in Australia, there are no races to motivate me.

So what do you do when you have nothing to motivate you?

motivatorThat’s right, you be your own motivator.  So I’m setting myself some mini goals.

For December I will like to do the following (in no particular order):

  • Run at minimum of 3 days a week
  • Cover 80km in the month (as this will bring me to 1100 running total for the year)
  • Have 4 long runs over 60mins
  • Have 3 hill training sessions
  • Run on Christmas Day

There, I put it out there, now YOU have to keep ME accountable.
