Update on my 2021 challenge

 This challenge that I set for myself is huge!  I knew it when I decided to sign up for the 2021 miles in 2021.  I knew that 5.61 miles for me would be a stretch and really push myself!  Yet I did it anyway!  I signed up for the challenge and I decided to do it solo, meaning that I would be the only person responsible for accruing 2021 miles!

I was so excited to start the new year and get this challenge rolling.  I woke up on the first of the year and I eagerly went to the exercise bike and got my miles in! I pushed hard!  The room was hot.  I felt so dizzy after getting off the bike! I didn't let that stop me.  On December 2nd I was back on the bike!  I was there again on the 3rd!  Every day I hopped on that bike and I rode.

But it wasn't long before I started to feel the dread...the overwhelming feeling of working on a challenge that was WAY TOO BIG!  Every day I drug myself to the bike and grudgingly rode.  And I questioned my sanity!  I mean, It's only one week into the year.  I've got 50-51 weeks left! This year is going to be long!

But I'm not giving up!  A true challenge is something that tests you and pushes you to your limit!  That is what I want!  So I will keep pushing forward.  I will focus on one day at a time!  I will do this!

Shooting for the moon is okay as if you fall short you land in the stars. I am trying to get as many miles as I can. Who knows, I just might hit 2021.

I am focusing on one day at a time...getting my required mileage for that day and not looking forward. And you are right...aim high and even if I don’t make the goal I’ll have done amazing things!!!

Wow that is a huge goal! You may be able to make up some ground when you get outdoors this summer, which sounds more fun. I admire your determination!

I find riding the stationary bike the most boring exercise on the planet. Except perhaps rowing. Hope you can mix it up soon.
