Like A Warm Cup Of Coffee. You can read about the other things I hope to learn over the next 12 months( I guess 10 now) here.
My new thing for September was to run 1 mile with out walking. I was tempted to call this post Fail!!!
And to add salt to my wound just as I had finished running on my tread mill I watched Biggest Loser and Bob says "every American should be able to at least run 1 mile."
As you can see I didn't call this post fail. Because after thinking about it I decided that .76 of a mile is like 5 X's better then I was able to do at the beginning of September. So because of this Septembers new thing was not a fail. I will keep working at it. And maybe one day I will be running a complete 5K instead of walking.
When I was planning this post in my head as fail I decided this was probably the reason I don't publicly share goals very often. If I just have a goal in my head or written down in a place only I can see I can lie to myself. I can push the goal back a month and give myself more time to accomplish it. When other people know about the goal I can't really lie about whether I accomplished the goal or not. The perfectionist in me doesn't want other people to know that I failed at meeting a goal I had set.
I am so glad I was able to see the good in this months challenge and if I do say so myself .76 of a mile is pretty darn good!!!
Next months challenge is much more relaxing and hopefully I will have a knitted blanket to show you by then!!
