Goal update, December 2014

This is my last post of 2014, and something of a wrap-up of the whole year before. December was mostly good, but I did my fair share of holiday eating and so have lost no weight this month. But that’s fine. I’m going to set up new goals for next year, and I’m confident I can make it to where I really want to be.

Based on how far I went in 2013, I set a goal to run 600 miles this year. I blew right past that goal months ago, and estimated I’d make it to 900 miles instead. And as I kept running I actually made it all the way to 1,000, with a few days to spare. That’s a pretty incredible distance to me, and a good reminder of how slow, steady, day by day progress adds up.

I’ll follow this post up tomorrow with a plan for 2015.

Activity 2014 Goal December To Date Progress
Running 600 miles 97 miles 1,007 miles 168%
Cycling 1,000 miles 13 miles 1,292 miles 129%
Weight Loss 40 pounds 0 pounds 27 pounds 67%
