Unicycle Update for September: 4.7 Miles

I logged 4.7 miles this morning on my 36-inch uni at nearby Best Friend Park in Norcross – doing my part to spur contributions for the Nepalese orphans.

Interestingly, the Atlanta Unicycle Club is doing its weekly run around Stone Mountain at 5:30 pm, but that’s too late for me.  I’m hosting a Logical Soul Meetup Group in Duluth at 7 pm, so I thought I’d get an earlier start.

My goals are set according to Raymond Aaron’s Monthly Mentor program.  Raymond says to set 3-level goals based on what he calls M-T-O, or “minimum,” “target” and “outrageous” and give yourself more points for each level of accomplishment.  This way, its easier to accomplish something so you never feel defeated, instead of the binary “succeed-or-fail” model.

My “outrageous” goal is to ride 100 miles this month.  That means I must log 4.4 miles or more every day.  My minimum goal is 60 miles and the target is 82.

I can meet the minimum by riding 5 miles every other day (or 2.5 per day), so it is easy to achieve that one.  The target is a bit of a stretch, and the outrageous is even more of a stretch.  I can do it however, barring any unforeseen setbacks or injuries.
