Running: *sore*

Went to Body Pump last night and did something really scary -- I upped my weights.  I've been tossing the possibility around in my head for quite some time now and finally took the plunge.  So glad I did.

Adding weights, even two additional pounds, can make a world of difference and it's scary!  My first thought was that I wouldn't be able to do it.  I added five pounds to my squat weight and five pounds to my chest weight.  Although, I did drop five pounds on my triceps weight.  My arms start shaking so badly that I can barely hold the bar!  Maybe I'll add the weight back and just hold it bar so at least I'm getting some resistance training in. 

I ran


It's a small amount but after doing an hour of Body Pump, you're pretty whipped.  Not to mention my legs were shaking from the added weight that evening.  This Saturday I have my first 10k and I couldn't be more happy.  A little nervous because my leg is still acting up and I haven't had the chance to run six miles in a while.  I'm not worried about completing, I'm just worried about how slow I'm going to be.  I don't like being slow.  Compared to other people I'm slow, but that doesn't matter I'm comparing my time with my previous times and I know that's what will make me disappointed...I'm going to give it my best and I'll have photos soon!

Silent cheerleaders, have any races planned?
