Well it has been quite a week in different ways. First recap of goals:
1) Do 30 minutes of something writing related each day.
2) Test mile - 250 words a day.
3) Read two books a week for 100+ reading challenge.
4) Review one book a month.
5) Exercise twice a week.
It is easier to walk through my week because it was all quite up and down progress wise!
13 minutes writing 428 words.
I was late in from work and had work to do at home so didn't get much done but I did make my test mile.
30 minutes writing 867 words
I think this was done by joining in half a sprint on #row80
I turned 29!!!
Had a great day but no writing, no dance class and no check-in. Even though checking in twice a week is not a goal it did feel strange not to and I never caught up with this.
30 minutes writing 605 words
During half a #row80 sprint
Spontaneous food and drinks with work friends so didn't get in until bedtime. No writing but a great time :)
Saturday - also known as catch up day!
1 hour sprint - 1,650 words
Another 1 hour sprint - 987 words
Total words - 2,637
I tweeted @laurengarafalo to see if she was around and as luck would have it she was up for some sprinting! I therefore caught up on my missed minutes and my missing test miles and then some! Felt so good to write when I wasn't all tired from the day job.
17 minutes writing 509 words.
Even though writing hasn't been daily this week I still think I achieved alot. I completely failed to exercise but I enjoyed my social plans with friends which is all part of having a birthday! On the reading front I just don't seem to have had time. I worked out I need to read atleast 2 books a week to make the 100 in the year however as a teacher I get long holidays and tend to read lots and lots in shorted spaces e.g. over the two week Christmas holiday I read 6 books so there is some wriggle room. In January I read 8 books so I am somewhat on track but I think I need to try and find a bit more time to read. I also need to think about reviewing when I am reading as I think the book I am currently reading will be the one I review in February.
So, some good, some bad and some ugly (no exercise). But I am smiling and pleased especially with my word count for the week which is....4,537 words! I do write much quicker during sprints so I am really going to try and join in with them this Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.
I hope everyone has had good weeks with lots of good and no bad or ugly bits. Have a great week!
