Ouch. That is about all I can say right now.
So, yesterday, I was eager as ever and took off running trying to run "slower" as per my coaching request. Got about 5k in and realized I was running almost race pace... just chugging along at a good clip. But by the end of my 5 mile endeavor my legs were screaming at me. A very loud WTF!! Ha! Today, they are sore... so sore. I still got up, out the door, and ran. 3 days down... many many more to come :) I'm still as excited as ever but laughing at my eagerness and my body feeling like it has never run before! How a few weeks of down time can totally wipe the slate clean.
In other news -- check out the OCTOBER issue of Outside Magazine. I am featured in the XX Factor as one of the new "goddesses of adventure" ... I am in amazing company with the likes of Torah Bright (gold medal snowboarder) as well as three other incredible women. It was a total honor to be asked to be in the issue and I've been waiting SOOOOO patiently for it to come out!!! So, CHECK IT OUT!!!!
