This week, I finally started feeling (mostly) like myself again. I was, however, also reminded that I still need to take it slow, because that feeling is a LIE! (Or at least a bit misleading.)
BUT – let’s see how I did with this week’s goals:
Training Goals – 5/11/12 – 5/17/12
Friday: Walk 1 mile – SUCCESS! I actually walked 1.5 miles
Saturday: Rest/enjoy parade/walk downtown – FAIL! I did not rest. I did enjoy most of the parade & also did an hour of yard work/landscaping.
Sunday: Walk 1 mile – SUCCESS! Kind of. I walked 3/4 of a mile after doing a good 2 hours of gardening. That was much harder than I remember (the gardening, not the walking). The entire garden, except for tomatoes & peppers, is now in. And wow, I was sore the next day!
Monday: Rest – FAIL! No resting for me! I walked 1.8ish miles with the architect in the evening.
Tuesday: Walk 1.5 miles – SUCCESS! I walked only a mile, but after the day before, I think that’s okay. I also did 30 minutes of unscheduled yoga, so that definitely ups the count.
Wednesday: Rest – SUCCESS! I rested! Go me!
Thursday: Walk 1.5 miles – FAIL! I did not walk yesterday. BOO!
Total goal mileage: 5 miles
Total actual mileage: 5.08 miles
Total goal other activities: 0
Total actual other: 3.5 hours (yard work & yoga)
Overall – SUCCESS! Yay!
Now for the next week:

Saturday: Yoga – FOR REALS – at a studio and everything!
Sunday: Swimming – I would love to do 1000 yds minimum, but will listen to my body & see what happens.
Monday: Walk 1 mile
Tuesday: Walk 2 miles
Thursday: Walk 2 miles
Total goal mileage: 6 miles
Total goal other: 2 hours
