5 miles

I did it, a Whole 5 Miles!!! OMG is all I have to say!!!!

Saturday was team training at Gadsden park at 6:30 am! let's just say I got lost going there so I made it JUST in time for stretching!! I love my team! It is such a great experience and I don't want it to end, even though I have 3 1/2 months left!!!

It was most definitely in the 80's when we started and I have never ran even 3 miles without stopping, or more than 30 minutes and guess what I did!!
I ran 5 miles/an hour and only stopped for 2 minutes, and my water breaks!! i could not believe how far I came!! A month and a half ago I couldn't even fun 2 miles!!!!!

Sorry, I am just so excited!

Well, lets just say after that I went for a pedicure and the nail lady told my my feet were dehydrated ( I almost said, "No kidding my whole body is dehydrated", but decided to keep my mouth shut. Also, she decided to tell me that my two is swollen, again...NO KIDDING!!

Now my knees still hurt and it's time for the week to begin, but i'm so ready for 6 miles next weekend!! I even got a compliment for a few people!! I love my team!! I also gave myself an award for most improved!! Yes, I am a little cocky, but whatever

crazyy week catch up

So, I am so bad with posting on here but I would be more than happy to give you recap of my last week!!

So, Last week I was sick so I was unfortunately unable to get any running in. I was sick enough that I had to call into work, which we know I Never do. With that being said, it truly limited what I was able to do. As you remember, I am sure you heard about my black toe, which is getting blacker but not as painful. Although, it only seems to hurt while I have sneakers on..what a shame!

O.K. Well this weekend I met one of my pledge sisters, Stephannie in Orlando for the Disney's Expedition Everest Challenge. It was so much fun, and I want to do it every year. I was very proud of myself. For coughing and not being able to breathe, and not putting a sneaker on for over a week, I ran almost the whole thing, then again for the scavenger hunt part! We finished it in 40 minutes, and that included the obstacle courses, so if we take all that out, definitely under 37 minutes at the most! After the race, we got our medals and food (Yummy) and they closed the park down so it was a pleasure!! Ride after ride and no lines, that's my type of Disney.

Now that it's the week, I am back to work, school, and training which is kicking my ass to say the least!!! I skipped Monday because I met one of my girlfriends for dinner and didn't make it home early enough, Tuesday was class. On Tuesday though I did make it to my training session with my new sexy trainer!! More on him later!!!
As today is Wednesday, I Will be hitting the gym after work, then a night filled with homework because I feel like every assignment is due at the same time! I am not looking forward to this weekend due to the fact I will be confined to my apartment doing homework! Hopefully I will get the time to leave for a few minutes.
OK, as I digress, tomorrow is my first Hill workout, Wish me luck! I'm sure my legs will be dying later. But I do love my team and want to do another Team in Training event again!! It's so wonderful

Thanks for reading this,

Hello Back toe

After 3 days of running, I think I can say I have a running injury! Although that is never good, It is pretty funny to look !
I have a black toe nail! Gross!!!
After the second day of running I was in pain, but decided to run again on Saturday with the team! BOY was that painful!! I couldn't even walk Sat. and Sunday. Sunday I got sick, and my foot is finally starting to feel better!
This is going to be a short post because we are going an online class!

I will repost again soon!!!

Hello Weekend

Hello Everyone reading, I hope your weekend is off to a great start!!
Yesterday was my first track workout. Overall it was about a 3 mile run. Today I might go for a little 5K this evening, and another 4-5 miler tomorrow!!! WOW for me!! Who ever thought I would be doing all this running, certainly not me!

The weekend is finally here and it will consist of running and homework. I have to get so much done this week it's a little ridiculous. With all the homework I need to get done I also have events I must attend.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!
