This shows my miles run over the last year. As you can see I average about a mile per day, and other stats show that I get out about every 3days. It’s no big deal. Many people run more, longer, faster more often, but I like this chart because it shows consistency. Since June all my bars are about the same size, whereas this time last year there were months with a lot of miles and months with virtually none. I’m pleased to be developing a gentle running habit in stead of flash in the pan starts and stops. Over the next six months I’d like to see those bars gradually get a bit taller. No grand schemes, no big ambition, simply slow and steady, fit and healthy😊
To some people this may sound like a very low expectation or underachieving, but for me it is a new way of life. In the past I’ve always worked to a formula of set goal, put everything into achieving said goal, (and neglect other stuff) achieve, rest(or collapse) get bored, look for new goal.
Now I’m trying to live more of a smooth ride and less of a roller coaster, trying to enjoy the scenery rather than gripping onto the safety rail! That’s not to say that I can’t have the odd day of fun at the fair😁 But generally it’s about making more of the smaller moments☺️
Have you ever tried to change the pace of your life?
Do you think that it’s possible to bring a sustainable change, or can a leopard never change its spots?
