I’ve not been very happy with myself this month. Focusing on the rides, I’m going to be very lucky if I hit 50 miles in the November 100 challenge, which doesn’t make me proud.
However, a quick look at the goals I set way back in January has made me feel much better.
- With your help, I’ve raised over £500 for Springhill Hospice, a wonderful and necessary place where they looked after my Mum until she left them, and us, in December last year.
- I completed the Manchester to Blackpool ride, the first time for me in 9 years and a major step in becoming the fitter bloke I want to be.
- I’ve ridden over 600 miles this year, something which I absolutely know I would never have done without this blog and the support that so many people have given me.
So, now I feel better.
The community which I’ve joined whilst writing this blog has been a massive source of motivation for me. Cajoling, mickey-taking and gentle but firm pokes in the (virtual) ribs have been extremely necessary. I’m not self-motivated enough to get the shed door open on these cold nights and without you lot it simply wouldn’t happen.
So I just wanted to say thanks. You’ve helped me a lot. Give yourselves a pat on the back. 🙂
My Final 2010 Goal
I’ve not put this into the little box on the right, so I’m putting it here. I reckon I can force myself to clock up a total of 700 miles in 2010, so I’m publishing that to force myself to try.
God, I hope I do it now.
So… who’s going our for a ride in the next few days?
