“The best laid schemes o' mice and men Gang aft a-gley; And leave us naught but grief and pain For promised joy”
Robert Burns (1759-1796)
Monday always signals a new beginning to me, a chance to start fresh and make up for mistakes.
Today was a Monday gone wrong from the moment I woke up - I won't bore you with the mundane details of my daily life gone awry - but I can honestly say I am glad this Monday is coming to a close.
My weekend plans were equally awry and I felt like I accomplished naught that I set out to. I hate the feeling of wasting time or being unproductive; I need to learn to accept that not everything I plan will work out the way I planned - another life's lesson that I am working on.
I came home from work tonight, threw some chicken in the oven and then headed out for a walk. My legs were just not feeling it - I couldn't find my stride, my jacket was flapping, my pants were driving me nuts - nothing was right! I just kept putting one foot in front of the other and did the shorter route around my neighbourhood; not in the best time but I forced myself to finish. My legs have been feeling like lead for a few days now and no amount of stretching or long soaks in the tub seem to be helping. They truly feel heavy, I've never experienced it before.
Tomorrow I will walk at lunch time again. Today I was 3 hours late for work and wasn't quite cheeky enough to get up and leave for an hour when I'd only been there for an hour ;)
This past week, I walked 14.89 km in 4 days. My goal was to walk every day so I fell short there, but I did walk 2x for two days so I am feeling good about that.
This week I am aiming for 7/7 days again but I'd like to hit 20 km. That's only just a little more than 5km than last week and is about an hour's worth of walking, if I hit the 7/7 days that is easily doable - so I'll check back next Monday and let you know how I did. In the meantime, my mini should update daily. Thanks to Tamara for helping me out so I could get it on my blog.
