Marathon - WEEK THREE in Review

All this week I had been dreading my long-run day. For someone who started out hating running and really having never done it before, I really thought 5 miles was impossible. To my surprise I not only completed the required 5 miles for my long-run training this week but I completely ran the whole thing! No stopping to walk and catch my breath! I know! I can’t believe it either. What else I can’t believe is this Reactive Cycling class that Kaycee and I took on Saturday. It was INSANE! We had heard it was a tough class but I guess our pride got in the way and we totally thought we had it in the bag. Whatever! I have never sweated so hard in my entire life. My tee-shirt was entirely drenched by time we were done. Throughout the class we kept looking at each other as if we were going to fall off our bikes and die! But again, we endured and conqured! Who cares that my legs were jello afterwards and it really took some concentration to walk down the stairs to my car because I sweat half my weight away! Well, not really but it sure felt like it. So buh bye WEEK 3 and bring on WEEK 4!

You are so good!!! I love running and it feels so good when you finish:) I also LOVE spin classes. I always work so hard and sweat soooo much in only like a 45 min. class. Thanks again for your inspiration!!

WAHOOO!! I really read this and i am so jealous. I need a friend to kick my butt and get me at a cycling class adn running a marathon. It is sad to say- but really i would need a friend or someone to push me b/c presently i have little to no desire myself. it sounds amazing though to be in such great shape! i wish i could be there at the finish line!! I will though in heart, right?!! love ya and miss you...really i do.
