This week started out pretty rough. Let’s just say I could not keep up to all the runny noses I had in the house, my own throat started feeling rough, and really none of us were free of some nasty bug that entered our bodies.
And then it happened……..a major snow storm mid week!!!!!!! Yes, every pile of snow was gone from our yard, our grass was raked and our yard was ready for Mother Nature to rain down on my brown grass and green it up. Instead, she decided one more snow storm would be the perfect plan….I however, completely disagreed with this plan. Unbelievable!
To put it mildly, it was a long, hard week. I did get in some exercise but overall I did a lot of resting myself while getting up and down a million times to wipe kid noses. I can only hope next week we all feel a bit better and can possibly get back outside to play again….that is if all this snow melts.
Here’s what my workouts this week shaped up to be:
Saturday: 3.10 mile hike
Monday: arms, shoulders, back routine,1.25 mile trail walk in the evening
Tuesday: recumbent bike 30 minutes, various yoga positions for stretching, 3 mile evening walk (one last outdoor walk before the snow covered our street once again)
Wednesday: rest…..to sick to exercise
Thursday: 30 minute recumbent bike, arms, legs and back weight routine, stretching
How does illness affect your workouts? (Typically, I can push through illness but sometimes I just have to except that it’s my body’s way of saying….take a rest would ya!!!)
