#GoTheDist minigoal: met

By | October 5, 2013

At the beginning of September I said my newest goal was to do better Q3 than Q2 I knew it was going to be a tall order with some long walks this spring, but I thought I could do it. Well Q3 ended this week, how did I do?

Time Frame Steps Miles walked Miles biked
Totals for 3Q 758,057 316.3 31.66
Totals for 2Q 489,726 300.5 98.36
Totals for 1Q 0 ** 61.88 150.65

I did it!
Skin of my teeth, but I DID IT.

Time to finish the year out strong. Here are my Q4 #GoTheDist mini goals:

  • get to the gym more often. That 31 miles biked is indicative of a larger problem. Walking is good, but so is the gym. I need to find a balance between the two. I think this will come somewhat naturally with the changing weather not being as conducive to walking home.
  • Do better than Q1. This is weather driven, Jan-Mar are about as conducive to walking as Oct-December, especially since work is busier than the fall. Q1 was somewhat undercounted, when I got the Jawbone I realized I walked more in a given day than I gave myself credit for so this should be easy.
  • Numerical goals, I was going to say one third better than my poorest showing for each total, but 82 miles seems too little. So 2/3 better it is. 102.7 miles walking and 52.5 miles on the bike. I’m hoping I’ve hit both by the end of November, but we’ll see.

** didn’t get the Jawbone Up until May, so no steps until then
