POTM Confession Time

POTM Confession Time

It’s time to ‘fess up. We’re now nearing the end of the Pile on the Miles challenge, and I’m off target, with little chance of recovering- unless I somehow fit in a couple of marathons this week.


I had initially planned to achieve 150K this month. It looks like my mileage will be closer to 100K 😦

Thanks, padres- I feel better now I’ve gotten that out in the open! The main reason for my short mileage is a combination of being a wuss and not running in the dark, along with busy weekends away with no running, and with busier-than-usual evenings too.


So, I’m going to celebrate what I have achieved, and not get too downhearted. After all, we all know:


How have your November challenges gone?

You Found Me By Searching What? Part Two

A few weeks ago, I wrote a short post abut how some people had found my blog by searching ‘depressed quotes’!

Well, things must be looking up for me, as someone found me this week by searching for this:

Yay! Cool Movember motivation? That’s more like it!


It’s ‘fess up time. I’ve had some late nights this week, and so my POTM has slipped. I’m about 10K off target, which is not good; but is entirely recoverable, I hope!

How are you doing with your November challenges?

Well, here we are, a whole week into Movember November already!


And so, that means I’m already one week into the Pile on the Miles 2013 Challenge!


I’m slightly off track. I should have achieved 35K by now, on the basis that I planned to do 5K per day. So far, I’m sitting at 30K, so I’m 5K adrift. I could be a lot worse!

Some of my distance has been walked rather than run and I was hoping to run it all. But with a 10K race on Saturday, I’ve been keen not to do too much running. I want my legs to feel fresh on Saturday, so that I can enjoy it 😀

But, after Saturday, I have no more races planned for 2013 (yet). Though I may try to sneak in a Santa Dash or two 😉

I’m looking forward to running purely for pleasure next week, with no training plan to stick to.

No doubt, after a few days I’ll be feeling a bit like a ship without a rudder!

How are you getting on with your November challenge?
