I'm embarrassed to say that I have failed in my exercise goals for May so far. I was on quite a roll with 30 Days of Biking in April and record mileage for the month. Then, I solicited your advice for May and you came through with great encouragement and direction.
And I did nothing.
I don't recall what happened exactly, but maybe you have had this occur in your life as well. I took a day off, then was genuinely busy for a day or two. Then, we did some family stuff. A week passed, then...well, you get the idea.
My motto for this blog has always been "keep moving" (or "never quit"). When cycling, my goal is to always be peddling, even if it is slow. But the beauty of cycling is that you CAN COAST and enjoy the ride. For awhile. Then, you have to pedal again and likely, you have to pedal harder to get some momentum going.
It is time for me to start "pedalling" again. I will again consult your challenges for me in this post and establish some goals to finish May and into June.
On a personal note, all is well at work and home. The kids are finishing their school year at their "Hogwarts"-style smarty-pants school, so my wife and I have been stumbling our way through as tutors in biology, Latin, literature, etc. Our family time has been great, but I know that I can have that AND continue on my Clydesdale Project of eating well and regular exercise.
Thanks for hanging in there with me. I have been surfing your sites as well and see that many of you are actively racing, working your plans and making great progress. I'll be joining you soon.
