More from: mini goals

14,793

Mini update time. 14,793. That’s the average step count of my current 31 day Fitbit goal streak that dates back to March 15, the day after a snow day.  I hadn’t realized the streak was so long and only went back to count when I realized I crossed 75K in this week’s Workweek challenge and […]


March 2017: I ran away from “I can’t”

yep. That’s what happens when #GoTheDist meets #RunTheYear/#RunWithJoy Earlier this month I said: “I’m taking a run at my Q1 2016 goal. Probably impossible, but worth a try.” My Q1 2016 total? 1,008,946 My Q1 2017 total? 1,064,082 That is my best quarter, narrowly topping Q2 2016‘s 1,059,278. I also said: “Why is this still […]


Officially a Frozen Penguin

I finished! 284/298. Not even on the last page of the results. Good? No. Happy? Damn yes. My only goal going into this was to finish, ideally without dying. Mission accomplished. More detail: 57/61 among women 30-39 174/184 among all women. How did I come to do this race in 20 degree temperatures 9 weeks […]


5K Graduate

Not Couch to 5K. 5K! And only four days after my goal. My intention was to do 5K, it was not to do it without stop. I kept bribing myself “you can slow down at one mile. You can have a walk break at 20 minutes / 1.55 miles / 25 minutes / 30 minutes”. […]


#GoTheDist February 2017

so about those February goals: 300,000 steps 50 miles biked Graduate C25K Going to be harder with one less day than last year and a travel day or two, but I think this is doable. Feb 2016 total was 313, 153. I’m OK with a stretch goal of 305,000. Yeah, obliterated. Thanks, Amsterdam. Final totals: […]


Runners run on spreadsheets

While on the stationary bike today to give my knees a break, I started thinking about a training log. Runkeeper gives me some figures but I nerd out on numbers and it’s never enough. I love my spreadsheets (to the extent that I might go back and make a “spreadsheets” tag for my obsessive posts)! […]


Quit C25K to #GoTheDist

yep, I quit C25K. Not running, that’s still going strong. But for various reasons, Couch to 5K wasn’t working for me and it was frustrating me more and more. Quitting it actually started by accident. I was overseas and jet lagged and having issues converting the kilometers on the treadmill to the mileage I was […]


#GoTheDist 2017: January Chapter

After some family events, I knew January was going to be more of a struggle but I was determined. Even if hitting January 2016 wasn’t possible I wanted to at least hit January 2015 and, ideally, 300K steps. Mission Accomplished! January totals: 301,270 steps 127.16 miles walked 53.01 miles biked I came just shy, 428 […]


#GoTheDist 2017, January Running?

after setting my 2017 bike goal I was noodling around with the monthly increments needed to reach 500 miles on the year. I wanted to avoid a heavy start leading to checkins like this one from December 2015 So I set my goal at 42 miles per month, or 1/12th of 500. I think I’m […]


2017, Pages and #GoTheDist

I’ve been thinking about this for a few weeks due to end / start of year travel and I’ve come to the conclusion I have more non-spreadsheet goals than spreadsheet goals. And yes, still over thinking both. Prior year goals: 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013 (revised). Yep that’s three complete #GoTheDist years, it was 2012 I […]
