it is ALL KATIES FAULT that im actually considering this.
i ran three and a half miles last night. (to be fair, i only actually ran 25 minutes of it.) it took me 47 minutes. (364 calories) and i am SO SORE ALL OVER MY WHOLE BODY TODAY. my neck hurts, my shoulders, my bicepts, my abs, my quads, even the bottoms of my feet ache (besides the blisters that i get EVERY TIME I RUN.)
before i commit, i need to run 5 miles, and i need to buy new socks. and maybe new shoes. you know, for the blisters. if i can get that far in the training plan, then i think i could do it. s l o w l y. but still, i could do it. (as in 12 minute mile slowly. as in, jason will finish, then come back and ill make him run the end with me again slowly. ;) just kidding. kind of.)
so, that might be a new goal to keep me on track through the summer. it also takes the focus off my number (which is not what i want it to be yet. ger.) on that note i guess, i am disappointed that i did not meet my goal in december, and its maybe a little more disappointing that i am not going to meet my birthday goal. i have 17 pounds to loose, and just under 4 weeks to do it. thats more than 4 pounds per week, and thats just too much. i need to be building muscle. maybe running will help with that. it is a weight bearing exercise, and i am sore today. (did i mention that already? because i am REALLY SORE for the first time in a long time.) so, i dont know. i have a lot of questions and need to make a few quick decisions.
