So I'm doing the 20,000 steps a day, and I will pull the weightlifting back in next week. As of yesterday and today I could do the Fast 4 miles again. Nice, my legs still feel like jelly sometimes, but I can pick them up and go.

Changing my week
I was telling Noelie the other day that I have no oomph in my legs. I seem to have plenty of energy, other than the days I really, really, don't sleep well. When I did the Tortoise and Hare this week, I could hardly do the leg lifts, and I was debating if I could even do the weights. I tried hard but I felt very weak. Doing the fast 4 miles has been horrible too, my thighs and calves just can't seem to do it. I can do other walks just not the interval training. So Wednesday I decided to stop my firm workouts for a couple of days, wondering if I was having over training symptoms. I have read on other weight lifting sights that mandatory week breaks are necessary. I thought the weekend away would have covered that, but I guess not.
