I would cycle 500K and I would cycle 500 more

After 11 months I have completed my mission for 2010. I have managed to cycle 500 kilometres. I did a bit of research and to give you an idea of how far that is Oxford to Aberdeen is four hundred and ninety eight kilometres. If you do the math you'll have worked out I could have done more as 2km a day times 365 days works out at 730km but I factored in things like holidays. I also only cycled five days a week rather than seven. I wanted a target that was sensible and achievable.

For 2011 I've decided I'm going to try something different. So here and now in black and white, drum roll please, I'm going to attempt 20,000 sit ups in 2011. Again I have set some parameters for this challenge. Only going to do sit ups four days a week as I intend to still take a couple of days off  week and also still do some cycling. Every alternate day I will also be weight training.

You know how the saying goes. What doesn't kill you makes stronger. I sure hope so.

Roll on 2011another challenge ahoy.

Till next time

Crunches and I start 2 Jan!

Dawn said...

then I will to, how many do we need to do to get there in your time frame?

400 a week should add up to 20800 in 52 weeks. That means i can have two weeks off for holidays, sickness etc.
