Four failures in one day …

First failure was this morning, when I failed to get out of bed and go for a swim as planned. Gym bag was packed, but when the alarm went off I stayed in bed.

Second failure was sandball game after work. Although we lost two out of the three games we did actually win as far as total points go (15-11, 15-10, 0-15). We think we may just scrape in to the finals on percentage, but not sure yet.

Third failure was the second attempt at Week 5 / Day 2 of the push-ups challenge, where I managed the first seven sets again, but failed to reach the required 45 in the last set, but did manage 5 more than previous attempt (25).

Fourth failure was the second attempt at Week 5 / Day 2 of the sit-ups challenge. I did at least manage the first 7 sets tonight (30, 30, 36, 36, 27, 27, 33) but failed to reach the required 70 in the last set, managing only 30. I guess this is 319 sit-ups, so not a bad effort I guess.

I’ve decided that I need a new tyre. There is a reasonable hole in it, and given that I have the Great Ocean Otway Classic in two weeks, I don’t really want to go into that with a suspect tyre. Disappointing though, as I’ve only got just under 2300km out of this one, rather than the usual 4000.

    As far as my standpoints there are no failures there. Its amazing what you have accomplished. Your goals are always high and I am amazed how much you push yourself. So I wouldn’t call them failures call them, amazingly high goal not reached!
