Monday Motivators: Allergic to exercise


Last Week: I met my goal of 6 miles last week. Barely. I very seriously considered withstanding the allergy ridden outdoors for only one mile today. But I sucked it up (the snot in my nose that is) and did two.

This Week: I have 3 goals this week (YIKES!). Here they are.

  1. I’m going to cut back to a goal of 5 miles. My calves are tight, I’m feeling my right achilles and I’m only getting more pregnant, after all. This feels like such a pathetic goal… Yet, there it is.
  2. I seem to average ~4500 steps/day outside of my active miles. Why not go crazy and set a goal of 5000 steps/day? These steps won’t be quite as “athletic” so I’m not too worried about aggravating my calves.
  3. I’ve also landed on two hip/butt strengthening exercises I would like to ease into. My goal is to do them twice this week. I know that doesn’t sound like much, but I want to make extra-specially sure this does more good than harm.

  1. My phone seems to be allergic to allowing me to post messages. Let’s try this again. It seems like self-care and moderation is the theme this week– taking steps back and not pushing ourselves too hard. Good luck this week!
