Running Update


A few weeks ago, I posed the question, "Am I a warrior?" I forgot to mention that yes, yes I am a Warrior! Back in May, my brother and I completed the Warrior Dash together. It
was fun. It was hard. It challenged me in ways I didn't expect (like when I almost chickened out of going over the extremely vertical, quite daunting, 12-foot 'Warrior Wall' with nothing but a knotted rope to help me. I didn't let that wall win, though - on 'take two' I was up and over.) My bro and I had a great, sweaty, muddy day in the North Georgia Mountains.

Here's the rundown for this week. :)
Monday: 1.5 miles w/ S (16). Like Kate, we keep going out too close to noon. It was hot and we struggled to catch our breath.
Tuesday-Friday: life. Someone once said the hardest part of running is getting out the door. Definitely true this week. Focusing more on being a home-keeper than a runner.
Saturday: 3.5 miles alone at the park. Did two miles on the hilly off-road trail, and the rest on the pavement. All hilly, though - and once again too close to noon!
Total: 5 miles. and that's ok. :)
