Day 233: I have a pain in my rear

Thursday, February 07, 2013

Well, I've survived the week thus far.

Monday I did nothing but walk.
Tuesday was 5 miles of hill repeats.
Yesterday was my Cross Training Class
Today is 3 mile Thursday.

My butt and hips feel soooo sore.

So, on Tuesday night's hill repeats we ran up and down the hill 5 times. I was slow and appreciative of the faster runners who tolerated my presence. I was in the back with the rest of the 11 - 13 minute pacers. We're on repeat number 4 and of the six of them I started with five of them gave up. Well, that just lit a fire under my ass and made me HAVE to do repeat number 5. I may be slow, but I'm no quitter! I was so inspired by the girl behind me. She was probably a 15 minute pacer and all of 5 foot nothing. She was a little heavy, but she NEVER quit. Really, she inspired me.

In other news now I sit at 187 - that's two pounds up from my low of 185. I don't care, I'm just going to keep on keeping on.

Alright, time to kick work's butt!

    Your hill experience reminded me of one time when I was working out with a really fast runner who said running hills was the best way to increase your time. So we were running up this steep hill and he said "No, you have to run your FASTEST!"....I was running my fastest! emoticon
You're doing GREAT! emoticon
