I have never viewed myself as a distance runner. However, I've been toying with the idea of running a 10k. Over the last 5 years, I've done a dozen 5ks and while I enjoy doing them I feel like I could accomplish more. The next logical step is doing a 10k. Yikes, 6.2 miles all at once. I am shaking in my Nikes just thinking about it. I bit the bullet and signed up for a race the weekend of Halloween. It's a race to cure lymphoma. My mom was diagnosed in 1999 and through miracle treatments is living cancer free 11 years later!! So with the heart strings tugged, I registered for the perfect race to test out my next running level! Now I just need to add 2 more miles to my runs...I can do this! When I survive this race, I suppose that a 1/2 marathon is next. (Double Yikes) Mardi Gras in NOLA anyone?
I love kettelbells! I think they are fun! But I may have one hell of a bruise on my shoulder after last nights session. God bless Ms. All-star for having patience because I could not get the newest exercise at all. Ok, well at the end I kind of got it. She was worried about my wrist hurting (which they should if done properly) and they do a little but nothing like the bruise I can feel forming! I think some more practice will be in order and probably another 100 bruises!! And perhaps I need to keep in mind that 15lbs of cast iron can hurt you....yep, Ms. AS is totally going "I told you so".
