TREADMILL 16-18/30: 1 Step Forward, 8 Steps Backwards

1 Step Forward, 8 Steps Backwards

I was definitely hoping Day16-18 would read differently.  Going into it, I had a spike in motivation.  I remember a few years ago when I was in a gym-rat period and left for vacation, and I actually hit up the empty beach resort gym.  I was so proud of myself. Even my husband was shocked.  I had every intention to do that again this vacation.  The first items I packed into my suitcase were my sneakers, sports bra and running pants.

“Pyramids: Brisk Walk, Increase Pace 0.1 Every Minute to Run (5), then Reverse, x2”

Early morning flight across the country.  Landed with a sore throat.  Unpacked my sneakers.  Had lunch, took a dip in the ocean and pool.  Went down for a quick nap, but didn’t wake up until the welcoming reception was almost over.  Then ended the night out in the town.
Slept in until lunch time. Heard that the resort’s only treadmill was broken anyways.  😐
Today I finally put on my running tights! But to go atv’ing.
Today we take a full day to fly back ‘cross country.  During wedding weekend, my sore throat turned into a full sinus cold, and during landing my ear drum ruptured.   🤕
Back to the grind. But i’m literally sick and tired. 😷
I’m ready to call it quits on this challenge out of shear embarrassment.  😖
How is it possible that I feel worse? Every free moment today, I slept. 😴
Finally did it. Not proud of myself, whatsoever.

“Walk (2) + Run (1), x6”

I did it! Have a houseguest this weekend and could’ve used that as an excuse, but instead I ponied up. It helped this today’s Challenge was my favorite type – sprints.

“Rest or Cross Training”

Neither, moving onto Day19  👋


By the way, I didn’t wear yoga pants to the wedding reception.
