Mission Accomplished...

Sunday, February 24, 2013

I successfully took two rest days this weekend. It was a struggle, but I found some self restraint somewhere. Of course, a rest day for me still includes plenty of walking as I don't want the dog getting bored and chewing on the furniture. So, today's mileage was 8.2 miles. I am at a point where anything under 10 miles of walking qualifies as a rest day. I am back at the gym tomorrow to use the treadmill, bike and weights.

I am really tired of cold weather. Especially tired of icy sidewalks. I am wary of slipping and falling, and when I am walking the dog I have this fear I will fall on him and hurt him. I know these are probably groundless fears since I have yet to fall on the ice this Winter, but I still worry. (sigh) I can hardly wait until I can complain about the heat.

    Ditto on the weather and I'm slowly turning into you with the rest days, I feel restless when I'm supposed to take a day off.

    Come visit me in Jacksonville, FL and you can enjoy the heat. Well, until today. We have had heavy rain for 18 hours, so we are now chilling out and flooding.

But this week it was 84 degrees for 2 days in a row... in February. NOT GOOD!!

    Hmm-a connection: I worry about falling and breaking my hip. You worry about falling and breaking your dog's hip.

Did you ever think you'd have to struggle to NOT exercise?

    I totally understand about the dog. I have to walk mine at least twice a day or she drives us all crazy!
