How do I connect my Workspace to a resumed lesson?

I previously started the Ruby on Rails track and am trying to resume it. However, I cannot figure out how to attach my previously saved workspace and code to the resumed lesson? When I ask it to Check my Work, it seems to be looking elsewhere.

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Nick Pettit</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <header>
      <a href="index.html">
        <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
        <h2>Designer</h2>
      </a>
      <nav>
        <ul>
          <li><a href="index.html">Portfolio</a></li>
          <li><a href="about.html">About</a></li>
          <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li>
        </ul>
      </nav>
    </header>
    <section>
    </section>
    <footer>
      <p>&copy; 2013 Nick Pettit.</p>
    </footer>
  </body>
</html>

It's still looking at the tutorial's code sheet rather than my workspace which is well beyond that point.

It sounds like you are confusing the challenges and the workspaces.

The workspaces are general-purpose development environments to allow you to follow along with the instruction and to try building things on your own. Your work in them is saved from session to session.

The challenges are completely separate environments, designed specifically to test your ability to perform a task or set of tasks. They are not connected to the workspaces, and anything done in them is evaluated immediately and not saved.

Ok. That makes sense. Thank you. I know what I need to try to do now.
