Well the last two days have been tough -- sorry about missing yesterday's post - (and thanks for looking for it, Angela!) I lost power yesterday from 1:30 PM until 6 AM so no power, no light, no internet. To make things even more fun, I got hit by a nasty stomach flu yesterday so I really was down and out of commission yesterday.
The upside to the stomach flu, is I usually have good weight loss results at weigh in when I get hit. (It's so sad that this even crosses my mind.) sigh.
Needless to say, there was no workout yesterday. I didn't do much today either - still recovering, feeling weak. Hope to get up and running tomorrow. I need to run 5 miles one day this week and was supposed to technically get a 3 mile run in today.
I'm kind of a stickler for "following the rules." So my diversion off course is annoying. But I think this is what often trips me up. That all or nothing thinking. Sometimes, we hit roadblocks, or get detoured, or get food poisoned -- instead of throwing in the towel, you have to find another way to get to the destination. So I'll figure out a way to run 5 miles and get to my ultimate marathon goal.
