    Haven't read the ?ink, but if that's Jo Brand, serious respect in this weather.

    In the warm and dry today, a horrid, nasty interval session on the indoor rower

    ok finally I am able to hit the ground again. 55minutes, 5k walk+mild jog, 600 calories. Importantly, I got this out of my way in the morning. Dec0341.png

    Tomorrow I have to trek on a little hill, so will not do any other workout.

    Rode the bike into town for shopping g yesterday, and an easy 50 mins on the turbo. If the weather clears I'll try and get out on the bike later, if not more turboing.

    ok, I managed to do another 5k this evening; nice breeze; little sunshine. 55 minutes; 600 calories; 5.9km

    Dec0341.png
    Weekly totals: 170 minutes of workouts; Distance: 7.3miles; calories: 1700. I am falling short of my weekly averages; not sure how the next week goes.

    I just realized it is the end of the month. My monthly totals:/ Jan 2016:

    # of Workouts: 41
    Distance : 42 miles
    Time : 16 and half hours
    Calories: 9240

    Then I set a new goal from tomorrow; 30 days - 11,000 calories. My previous goals was 12,000 calories in 30 days; failed to achieve [could get up to 9,280 calories in 30 days] that. So this time, I reduced my goal to 11,000. The green lines show the start and end of the goals; the black lines show my workouts. A few days are blank, indicating that I did not anything. See pic below:

    My walk yesterday afternoon was shorter than planned when I got to the section of footpath which was under water! This weather really doesn't help, does it?* Mind you, I think the few other people I meet on muddy paths are so surprised to see anyone out walking, I get more chats-on-the-way than usual.

    *The UK residents will understand this!
