    Looks like you have set out a great goal...awesome 💪👌👏👏

    I am biking back to the first place I saw the Pacific Ocean. Pretty awesome memories of that place, living on the other side of the country, and so on.

    Plus, this has the added benefit of being just long enough that I can finish it a lot earlier than 365 days. I can also trick myself into biking more often by telling myself it's *only* 10 miles or more a night. Little stuff adds up and the stupid brain doesn't get as exhausted doing little things.

    Nostalgia and exercise paired must be a great way to wire the brain to want more, right? I love what you are doing!

    And I most definitely relate to brain trickery as I consistently plan big goals - too big and my brain gets frustrated like "we are doing what?, no, not possible!". So my only way through is to breakdown challenges into mini goals, which I love in a get freaky about organising kinda way (don't judge me people LOL).

    I keep a MiGoals diary too so I can schedule it all in, measure outcomes and physically cross of achievements.
    I also reward myself regularly (not food), just nice things that make me feel good.

    At the end of accomplishing big goals my brain is in shock and awe and the endorphins kick in.

    Rinse and repeat, because it works.

    Leg day, 35 minute elliptical with a 140 he average, leg day again just because I didn't quite feel the pump earlier, also had 20k steps prior to going to the gym because I was not stuck behind the computer doing desk work. Bring on rest day!

    Had I remembered that my phone's charger was unplugged and plugged it in last night I would have gone rowing. Instead I'm having a rest day.

    I'm not pleased but I'm sure my body is rejoicing. Rest day it is.

    1 mile swim.
    Splits of 23 and 26 minutes per half mile.
    Managed 1/3 freestyle, the rest was side stroke.
    Hoping for 50% freestyle next swim.

    14 mile easy marathon training run. Furthest I've run since Brighton marathon last year and the fact it was over the 13.1 was creating a bit of a mental block so it felt good to smash through and now I'm looking forward to next week's 15.

    Jumped on racing bike and cycled to newly published geocache 10 minutes away, found I wasn't the first to find, cycled back home. Fell back onto sofa.

    Oh, and did 40 minutes of bodyweight exercises. First half was kind of dynamic, like go into lunge, use same movement to go back and into again. Second half more 'normal' bodyweight exercises, all with various high knees for the sake of it. Stupidity of the day: Backlunge, come out, high knee, knee hits ellbow, fits hits chin. Ouch.

    Burpees x 5 every minute on the minute - completed 20 rounds in 19:25 - average HR = 153 bpm (85 percent) maximum HR = 169 bpm (94 percent) - total 226 calories.

    Planned on doing 30 rounds but my "eyes were bigger than my stomach." Something is better than nothing.

    Hiked up a mountain. Above alpine, winds blowing probably over 50 mph. Very strenuous. Happy to enjoy some wine while laying in bed.
