The final week of January mirrors the month of January… it was my highest mileage for both the month and the week since April of last year! I really didn’t have any big plans or expectations for the week and stuck with my intention of taking it one day at a time based on how I was feeling. So I guess this is what happens when I don’t have a plan. Hmm… maybe I need to quit trying to control it. Perhaps I just ride the weeks I feel like kicking my mileage up. Alternatively, embracing the weeks I’m not feeling it too.
I’m already anticipating lower mileage this week due to the scheduling of other things that need my attention but I think I’ll approach the week the same way… one day at a time and see how it plays out.
