Annual mileage goals– I never set them, preferring to focus on the events or plans I make in any given year.
And yet, when the twilight of any given year is upon me I find myself inventing, and then fervently striving, for an arbitrary finish line.
My accumulated miles for 2015 are not really remarkable, but I’ll share them anyway.
Bicycle miles: 5,975
6,000 miles is just around the corner.
Running miles: 916
Tantalizingly close to 1,000. But 1,000? Feels overly lofty.
So how about 950? Better. Likely, even.
This matters why? I’ll let you know if I come up with an answer.
But I have done the math and roughly mapped out plans from now until midnight on December 31. They’re in perpetual draft, but they do exist.
I admit it’s a bit silly. Does anybody else do this?
No matter. A little sport in December helps keep end-of-year activities interesting.
Wish me luck!
