It’s Day 22 of the 30 Day Fitness Challenge! Several of you are already participating, but anyone else who would like to participate is welcome to leave me a comment on this post. I’ll be glad to add you to the challenge! Don’t forget, I have a small prize to give away at the end of the challenge!
I’m going to be really honest with you this week — I am feeling pretty depressed. I was supposed to be running in the NYC 1/2 Marathon in March, but I’ve just recently made the decision to pull-out. I ran my first 1/2 Marathon last year in Nashville (you can read about it here), and I dealt with a recurring back/knee problem — and it seems to be back since I’ve upped my mileage (and did some heavy lifting when we moved furniture). I really love running (jogging, in my case), but it just doesn’t seem to love me!
Anyway, with the help of my chiropractor, I could probably push through it — if that was the only problem, but there are several other reasons as well — enough reasons that it really is wise to pull-out — but I JUST DON’T WANNA! I have this back-and-forth tug-of-war going on! (Have you ever been there?!!) I know this is the right thing to do, but I just hate making the decision!!
And so, I feel depressed about it.
But, on a happier note, I did get in some exercise! And it wasn’t too painful (except for the 7 mile “test” run I did)!
Here’s what I did:
Thursday, February 10: 4 Mile Jog
Friday, February 11: 3 Miles on the Elliptical
Saturday, February 12: Rest
Sunday, February 6: 7 Mile Jog
Monday, February 7: Rest/Stretching
Tuesday, February 8: Rest/Stretching
Wednesday, February 9: 2 Mile Walk/Jog
If you’re taking the challenge, how did you do? Feel free to leave your progress in the comments!
