The best-laid plans...

Remember how I was talking about stepping up my workouts? Like a week ago? Well, it hasn't happened. Between several days of rain and Sawyer and me both being sick, it's been the worst workout week ever. Yesterday morning I was determined to get my five miles in, come hell or high water, and I did it. I felt like I was going to die after two miles and just about had to crawl the last mile (OK, I'm exaggerating, but it was a lot harder than normal.) So today I'm home and resting on the couch. Am I being smart to listen to my body, or should I just power through? I don't know. But I do know it feels really, really good to lie down.

I've been bumped down to #6 on Fitify, and the #5 person is 12 miles ahead of me. Crap. (The #1 person has 214 miles! That's 7 miles a day, 7 days a week! How cool is that?) Here's hoping next week will be better...


  1. Aww you are doing great! Just stick with it :)

  2. I think if you're sick you need to take it easy. It won't help your body fight this yuckness if you aren't resting!

    That is coming from me who does not exercise and then there is Tib's post who works out daily and she says to push through - LOL!

  3. Hey - think of all the people who you are ahead of!

  4. If you're having a hard time because you are sick, I say rest. If you're having a hard time because you're out of practice from missing a few days, I say Power Through It!

    You're inspiring...keep it up!

  5. Im so jealous of you. I feel tired and crappy every day so im lucky to get 1/4 of a mile in :) Good for you!

  6. Take it easy, get back into it slowly. You can always do some yoga or walking rather than a heart-pounding, aggressive workout =) Good for you for taking care of yourself and your future health by striving to work out and be active.


Give it to me straight!
