Movember 2022 – Week 2

Movember 2022 week 2 is in the books. I’m very thankful that the weather has improved a little and we’re out of the deep cold.

We’re halfway thru November and my campaign is going amazing!

  • $1,100 / $1,500 towards my fundraising goal which is 73%. I’m only $400 from my fundraising goal!
  • 13.5 hours / 25 hours towards my activity goal which is 54%. That currently puts me ahead of the calendar but behind 290 minutes of activity compared to the fundraising. It’s a marathon not a sprint and I plan on upping my activity a little for the 2nd half of the month to make sure I stay on track!
  • My ‘Mo is almost thru the stubble stage.

This week, I setup my road bike with my internal trainer. I’m very excited to be able to put on some big KMs on my road bike inside this winter. I’ve signed up for Zwift as a training application for some fun this winter. There are many races and challenges available in Zwift. I put in 2 rides last week: 50 mins and 90 mins!!

My Movember physical challenge is going great! I had a bit of a slow start in the first week of November. Here’s a quick update:

  • Cycling – 4.2 hours
  • Rowing – 1 hour
  • Running – 1.6 hours
  • Walking – 3.4 hours
  • Workout – 3.3 hours
  • Total = 13.5 hours / 25 hours OR 810 minutes / 1,500 minutes

This Sunday, I completed 30 mins of row and 90 mins of cycling for a total of 120 minutes. It was my longest indoor cycle this year. I ran out of time to add a run as the final step for another mock triathlon and plan on doing that this upcoming Sunday.

Mentally, Movember is a great motivation for me in November. It’s a low time of the year. Summer/fall is over and winter hits. The snow and cold weather hit hard and quick in November. I’ve been stuck in the house for a couple of weeks and with bad roads, I haven’t wanted to leave the house. Transitioning to working out only indoors has been challenging. So I’m thankful that Movember gives me a little motivation thru November.

I hope that all my friends, family and readers are doing well thru Movember.

Here are some quick Movember stats:

  • Globally, men die 4.5 years earlier than women.
  • In Canada, 3 out of 4 suicides are men.
  • 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.
  • Testicular cancer is the most common cancer affecting young men.
