So since September I've upgraded my wallpaper, and picked up three badges: 20 for 20 (20 days in a row), In it for October (10 days of running in October) and the Long/Steep Stairs (increasing mileage by 5 miles per month for 6 months). I only just scraped into hitting the 173km target, and you can see from the "Kilometres per day" section of the figure that what had been alternating long/short days turned into super-long/long days at the end of the month. No wonder I was feeling so tired at the start of November!
Aims for November
It is the final month of the Towering Stairs badge (increasing mileage by 10 miles per month for 6 months), so that will be my primary focus. I was trying streak-running, but decided to give it a miss again for the month after feeling so tired at the start of it. I am having fun streak-writing on 750words.com, so that's a bit of a substitute! I am currently sitting on 32 badges and I think I should be able to pick up another three (In it for November, Monster 500, Sydney-Melbourne) by the end of the month to unlock another wallpaper option. Although I quite like the hearts, I'd prefer them in a non-traditional colour!
