I had a much better week. Got in more of my miles. Not much with walking/running, but with bootcamp and such. It's been too cold for outside walking and running right now (my co-worker calls me a "wuss" and I don't disagree - I hate the cold weather). I also haven't been feeling like using the treadmill. I feel like it's too much of a metaphor for my life at the moment - keep running, but getting nowhere.
Week #6 (February 5th-February 11th)
Feb. 5 = 0 miles
Feb. 6 = 2 miles
Feb. 7 = 0 miles
Feb. 8 = 3 miles
Feb. 9 = 0 miles
Feb. 10 = 6 miles
Feb. 11 = 6 miles
Total miles for week # 5 = 17 miles
The week started out with me in hibernation mode with the first of two blizzards hitting us. I did some shoveling, but that was it, and I ate horribly to add to it. Being snowed in makes me feel trapped and icky. Anyway, I decided to push myself hard at the end of the week to make up for it. Sometimes a hard workout is what's necessary and it actually released a lot of stress I was carrying around.
To work on: I need to get back into a better routine. I allowed myself to get thrown about by the weather and emotional blahs.
To be proud of: I made it through advanced bootcamp without nearly as many modifications (i.e. - I did real push-ups!)
