Boy guys. I'm just going to be honest here. Last week was a big 'ol FAIL from my end. I can have a whole list of excuses but the fact of the matter is that I got busy, I allowed myself to take out my workout to try to get everything done and now a week later I have one pseudo week 1 workout to count in the last week. I say pseudo because I couldn't actually finish all the running from that workout due to my knee.
The rest of the week? nothing. NOTH-THING. And while it is not part of this particular challenge - my eating? Yeah, not so good. So there's that to.
The irony is that some of the excuses are valid ones. They were real, time sensitive things that kept me out of the gym, but I didn't get up early to do it while the boys were sleeping. I didn't sneak time on the weekend when I could have found it.
I didn't. My choices. In this case a bad ones.
But I refuse to take this bad week and let it rule me. Instead I'll be back out tonight - starting week 1 again. Pushing through.
I WILL get three run/walks in this week. In fact I'm aiming for 4.
I WILL run outside (weather permitting) at least once and find a route that works for me.
I WILL forgive myself for the last week, forget it and start over.
Those are my goals this week. I'm sure most of you are doing much better than I but I'm trying and I'm going to keep trying. I hope you keep it up too.
