I’d been a tad lazy in the latter half of November. The Rotorua Half Marathon didn’t help. A cautious race week followed by a ridiculous ‘recovery week’ threatened to derail my goal of running 3000 km for the year.
I reckon I am definitely on the ‘Rain Man’ spectrum. This obsession I have for numbers is way over the top. That’s what my family and few friends say but what would they know! Now where was I? That plus that and a little of that divided by perhaps him, over the square root of everything minus of course all those little bits’ equals … SHIT!
Pouring over my Garmin Connect numbers revealed that for the month of December I needed exactly 365 km. Coincidental don’t you think? 80+80+80+80+45 in a busy month with lots going on isn’t going to be easy. So where am I? 80+80+81 to date. Notice how I cunningly slipped in an extra 1? That was planned. I’ll sneak in a further 4 more for insurance too.
I think I’m a better runner at the end of 2015 than I was at the start. A few PB’s to crow about. No significant injuries. I’m around 5.142 kg lighter. I shuffle less and at last discovered the benefits of the plank. My form continues to be a work in progress as is this blog which now contains 121 posts each viewed an average of 292.488 times with a total viewership of 35,391 and for those few friends I have and family that can’t escape, this all means absolutely nothing.
Have a happy and safe holiday everyone … there are just 5 sleeps or 97 hours until Christmas!
