Falling short of daily goals

I'd been thinking about taking another rest day this week because I ran Monday through Thursday. This morning I needed to get into the city for some meetings and I figured today would be as good a day to skip a run. I'm tempted to get on the treadmill and do a quick three miles this afternoon, but I'm sticking to my plan.

I only covered 10,000 steps yesterday and fell short of both my daily distance and flight (staircase) goals. I'd hoped that walking in the city would get me close to today's step goal, but I've still got a ways to go. Even though I rested both Sunday and today, I'm still slightly ahead on weekly mileage. I'll target a couple of longer distance runs this weekend and get my Fitbit stats back in line.

  1. I find it so hard to not be guilty about rest days. It isn't easy. But I find solace in thinking about tomorrow. There is always tomorrow. You did a good job holding off!

  2. Thanks RC. When I consider skipping a day, I always think something a doctor/runner told me, "Resting is when your body builds its fitness."
