Yesterday, in my blog I was talking about the lack of wisdom in exercising every day without a break. In fact, I had recently snapped a streak where I had walked 10 miles minimum for 25 days in a row. This is precisely what I wrote yesterday:
My mild injury, really only a tightness in my right leg seems to have gotten much better after two days of rest. As much as I take great pride in exercising almost every day - I also know intellectually that that is not the smartest thing to do. My addictive personality sometimes gets in the way of a more balanced program. Perhaps, going forward I should start a new streak - this streak should be the number of consecutive weeks where I am sure to rest at least one day. As of now, I did not exercise at all on Saturday or Sunday. I am not sure yet, what today, Monday has in store for me...I have some loyal readers of this blog, my wife, my Mom, my brothers.... But without a doubt, my friend Jack is the most loyal reader. I seriously do not think he has missed a day. He is also a fairly common commenter. His comment yesterday was the most perspicacious comment, ever.
Consecutive weeks with at least one day of rest. Didn't you do 10 years of that!.
Of course, my friend, Jack is exactly right. I did have about 10 years of weeks with at least one day of rest. In fact, I had 10 years of weeks with 7 days of rest! So, I suppose that I should be shooting for is consecutive weeks with 5 or 6 days of exercise. That is plenty of exercise. And it should be appropriate for rest. That is the goal. We will see where this leads. Right now, I am feeling a bit under the weather... so it might be a day or two before I strap on my backpack and take a walk.

fitbit day 96
5060 setps only! Worst day ever! And I had to march in place at 11:30AM for 5 minutes just to get that! Yesterday was a day that I drove from Chicago to Cincinnati - Can't get steps sitting in a car for 6 hours!
