Overcoming Obstacles

Thursday, March 17, 2011

I signed up to do the Virtual 5k on Spark People and I have been doing great. I am on the last week and tomorrow was supposed to be my "race", but it's been a weird couple of days. On Tuesday I hurt my knee during the 3rd mile of a 4 mile walk. Today my treadmill broke during the 2nd mile of a 4 mile walk.


I have a history of bad knees so knee pain is nothing new. I limped through the day determined to keep it moving so it wouldn't stiffen up. On Wednesday it was feeling a little better so I used my stationary bike. This morning it felt good enough to try walking. Two miles into my workout...the treadmill broke.


I took my walk outside today. I am hoping that my hubby can fix my treadmill.

Somehow I will complete my Virtual 5k race!

Happy St. Pats Day!

    I had my treadmill do that a few years ago (okay I guess it's been almost 5 - Jacob will be 5 in June). I was pregnant and thought that I'd get a walk in and it just quit partway into the walk. At first I thought that maybe it was because I was getting so heavy, but I still had problems with it after he was born. My hubby worked on it and it's supposedly working, but I haven't had a chance to use it. He's supposed to set it back up for me...

    Good luck with your race! You will do it!
