The last few months of this year are rapidly passing by and my exercise & blogging have unintentionally been on the back burner.
At the start of November I was in Ireland for a week. I attended 2 flow classes and on 1st November I made it to a 90 minute Bikram class in Galway which was my 150th class of the year. I loved it, a real sweatfest in a lovely studio with a super teacher. I felt like my practice was good and the teacher said as much afterwards. Achieving this many classes this year feels incredible and I was still on track to make 1 class every 2 days this year.
Since returning to London I have done classes 152 through to 157 but in the month of November so far I have only done one run. This was the only month this year in which there would be no formal race I could attend and so Steve and I agreed to do a virtual run, but when the weekend came I just bailed on it, so tired from travel and work. Obviously I don’t want to fail my years challenge on the penultimate month so I am going to have to get this run done at some point!
The reason I was unable to do a formal race was mainly due to a holiday, taking me out of the U.K. from the evening of 16th to 28th. I packed my running kit but have yet to go. I am travelling in Thailand and the days so far have been active with walking and bike rides, but I haven’t really ‘exercised’ and I am beginning to feel like I really need to. I’ve done a 60 minute of yoga practice since I have been away so I am falling behind on that too. I’ve done 158 now in 324 days which makes it a ratio of 1 : 2.3. We have just arrived in Krabi so I’m hoping I can pick things up a bit as I will need to have done 167 classes by the end of the month to be back on track which means completing 9 classes in 8 days; a challenge in itself.
I don’t know why I have been so demotivated throughout November. However I do know that planning is everything and to make December a success I need to have a plan.
