No Sunday Mileage for Me
So I had the notion that I would go to the gym today and get on the treadmill. I have been woken early all weekend by my daughter and the dogs, so to say I am not rested is an understatement. That being said, if I did not work out on the days that I was not rested, my feet would never see my running shoes. So, my husband talked me into taking the dogs and my daughter on her bike around the block for some movement. 1) I was not looking for movement and 2) How does this help me at all when I am already tired? So we got about half a block of my daughter crying when we got to hills, needed to cross the street, or when I went too fast. The dogs were crazed by the fact that she was ahead of us, would not walk with me but instead kept walking circles around me because we were going so slow, and wanted to be on the side that my daughter was riding. Needless to say, I did not get my mileage in today. My goal for tomorrow is to leave the hospital on time and get 3 miles in - whether I have to walk some of it or not.
