The Streak Is Broken

I got a stomach bug this week and ended up having to miss some swims and a bike and modify several other workouts. Since I felt the absolute worst when I woke up, a part of the modification was to wait until later in the day when I felt better. And just like that my “wake up, work out” streak was broken at 22 days. I’m pretty bummed about it but I’m finally feeling better and I don’t really have time to mope so I’m just ready to get right back to it tomorrow morning. (Literally ready – my clothes are laid out and my PB&J is on the nightstand.)

Being sick did my sleep schedule no favors, so this week I’m also going to work on walking back the time when I got to sleep to hopefully both be working out when it’s cooler (my current schedule has me out at literally the hottest time of the day,) and get used to waking up earlier.

Wish me luck!

I feel like crap, but at least the view is nice!

    I wish you very much luck. I didn’t know about your streak, but now that I do, I don’t feel like it’s broken. I think there should be legitimate reasons for days when you can’t wake up work out, and that those days shouldn’t count. A stomach flu is a legitimate reason!


    • Thank a zillion! And I totally see what you are saying, but to me the streak is broken. It’s ok, I just started it up again this morning and now I have a longest streak that I can concentrate on breaking. Thanks so much for the well wishes šŸ™‚

    I’m such a night owl, too, and trying so hard to sleep earlier–it’s hard! Good luck.
