Monthly Mission Lookback–February 2014

In February, I set a Monthly Mission that  I thought would be slightly difficult yet still very attainable.

And I failed miserably.

The goal of running for every day of the month started off great, but two weeks in I missed a day. I had a busy work day, and was working on getting my next podcast ready, planning the next days workouts, and doing other odds and ends, and I completely forgot to run. When my wife asked if I was planning on running the next morning, at about 8:30 that night, I realized I missed my run for the day and that I still had too much work left to finish to squeeze one in.

Strike one.

Then, on the 23rd, we went to church in the morning. After church, I had to ref a couple of  men’s league hockey games, and I pretty much had to leave as soon as I got home from church. By the time I got back from the ice rink, I had about 30 minutes before we were meeting with our Sunday School Class for dinner. Since I already missed a day in the month, I decided to call in lazy.

Strike two.

Then, at the end of the month, I got sick. Not sure exactly what I had, but I think it was a gnarly combination of head cold, allergies, and sore throat, and running simply did not sound like a good idea. So the last three days of February resulted in 0 miles on 0 runs.

Strike three.

How did you guys do on your monthly missions this month? I hope you were more successful that I was! I’d love to hear what you did and how it went in the comments below.

  1. Ugh it happens. Sometimes life just gets in the way. But at least you had the best of intentions!
