On I went, out of the wood, passing the man leading without knowing I was going to do so. Flip-flap, flip-flap, jog-trot, jog-trot, curnchslap-crunchslap, across the middle of a broad field again, rhythmically running in my greyhound effortless fashion, knowing I had won the race though it wasn't half over, won it if I wanted it, could go on for ten or fifteen or twenty miles if I had to and drop dead at the finish of it, which would be the same, in the end, as living an honest life like the governor wanted me to. -Alan Sillitoe, "Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner"

Goals for the week

Okay, here we go. I'm going to start making weekly goals to keep myself on track.

I'm torn between making them super ambitious (as that's my wont) versus making them modest (and thus increasing the likelihood that I'll actually complete them).

Goals that are on the tip of my tongue, but are not modest:
-do a week's training as prescribed
-take a spinning class
-take a boxing class
-run 20m/week
-bike to work

So... more realistic and modest goals for the week beginning Monday, 15 November:
-attend one boxing class
-bike to work
