I wrote a beautiful reply yesterday, but my computer ate it – so reporting in a nice half hour run plus a half hour boot camp class,
And you all – so nice to see so many people checking in…
Pam, you jump by greatly increasing the energy for a short time – it’s metaphorical! And Crazigerl, yes we do hillls, and pyramids, and races, it’s all nuts! Tomorrow is a race day…
Mallen – welcome – it gets easier
Slocupcake, love that after work out feeling!
Luscious, Pam’s right, it is a matter of doing a little more than you can do each day! It’s also intersting, what I used to consider a serious run (10 minute mile) is now a jog.
LMB 2011 – Welcome! I hate the jump rope, always end up flogging myself!
Take A Hike, the ropes are scary enough, trampolines can kill you (but maybe you’re not clutzy like me!)
I just finished a run, it started pretty slow, 6.4 MPH, never got much faster, but never got much slower, I hit 5 K at 28.35 which seems to be about normal for me. I kept going longer than I usually do – that was good – got through 41 minutes and 4.3 miles (that included a cool down walk). Runners high really happened, I don’t know if it’s chemicals or ego but it feels good.
