Monday Re-crap.............

Can you remember the first time you ran the furthest you had ever run?

That's the enjoyment that I was witness to on Saturday's group training. We had 16 miles on the schedule and the participants rocked it! Albeit sore and tired but completed.

We had several people partake in standing in the lake after the fun, I mean run!

How can yard work hurt an athlete?

I mean, it's just mowing and picking up crap, but I was sore and aching from it!

I am going further in my New Balance Minimus shoes and the only drawback is landing on small rocks! How the hell do people run barefoot?

I got spoiled with the summer-like temps a few weeks ago and can't wait for sunshine and heat. I'm sure come July I'll regret both.

10,000 Push-Up Challenge is 100 days in and I'm actually ahead for this month. The number of planned push-ups should be 3,000 and I'm at 2,514.

Spring time is so pretty but I effin hate the wind!

Loved that 'farthest I've ever run' feeling. That was the best part about training for my first marathon. Every long training run, and the race itself, was a new longest-ever-run. Have one of those coming up in about a month when I try a 50k. Ain't gonna be pretty, but it will be memorable.

Yay TNT!
I remember the first time I ran 10 - I came home to an empty house so I had to go attack one of my neighbors to rant on about it (fortunately I have very nice, patient neighbors).
HOW many push ups? Dang!
