Okay, I know I have been posting a lot about biking, and I promise this will be the last one for a little while, but I wanted to share with you that I hit 1000 miles on my bike odometer this week.  That means from the purchase of my bike on June 2nd, 2012, I have logged 1000 miles.   1010 actually, in 124 days.  That’s an 8 mile per day average.  I am a little bit impressed with myself, considering 8 months ago I scoffed at the idea of biking as a fitness platform.

And while I feel a pang of pride at the 1000 mile mark, a part of me wants to poo-poo my accomplishment.  After all, I know a few people with a lot more miles than that.  Like 2000.  Or 2500.  Or 6000 (really and truly).  However, one should never discount one’s accomplishments, no matter how they compare to others.  So, instead, I am accepting this and giving myself a gold star.  And a new goal of 2000 for next year.  Cuz that’s how I roll.

Tomorrow, I am going to expound upon one of my Fitness Bucket List items, which will be my main focus over the long winter months when the bike is in storage.  I want to be able to do 100 consecutive push ups.  And I hate push ups.

Meanwhile, I would love it if you would post something you have accomplished this year – why did you do it?  How did it feel?  Would you do it again?
