Two rest days in a row?

Sunday, December 16, 2012

I relaxed again today. Cooper and I only walked 8 miles, and I didn't do any ST. I added up my miles for Sun through Sat, and I covered 92.4 miles in 7 days. That is a nice total, but a little extreme, so I think I will take it a little easier this week. I am planning to go to the gym with my niece on Tuesday which will be a change of pace. It has been a month or two since I have gone and I think it is time to try it again. Not going has not affected my weight loss as far as I can tell, but I think I am losing some of the muscle strength in my upper body. I do ST at home, but not consistently, and it just isn't the same.

Cooper is barking at me, I guess I should take him ouot for his last walk of the day. Take a deep breath. Everything will be okay.

    'Only walked 8 miles'. Lol. Girl that shows just how much you exercise! I can't wait to say something like that. :) You always get movement in no matter what's going on so to me, you do a great job at all times!

    I know that when I take the strength training classes at the gym that I work much harder than I do at home. Something about the energy of the group, music and having the class led by a trainer really helps.

    I'm confused! Are you calling a day that you walked 8 miles a "rest day"? Either way, sounds like an amazing week to me!!

    That is amazing mileage! I think you more than earned 2 rest days.
