Running Sunday was...well, running. Actually, running. More running than walking, which is a first, maybe ever.
I talked to Kayle about how to train and she just decided to push me. We ran first until I said stop, which was around 5 minutes. After that, she'd make me run after only a few minutes of walking (after I became less lightheaded) and then she'd make me run farther than I wanted to. It was unpleasant, but really good at the same time! I felt like I could do it, while I know it's still a long way away, I will be able to run this thing. She's talking about signing us up for a 5K in October. We ran again today...after swimming. It was tough, but I ran it. I can run for about 5 minutes before I have to stop, but as long as I don't walk very long, I'm happy with it. Today when I ran, my lungs didn't burn as badly, so I'm making progress...and enjoying it, while only slightly more.
We've done a good job of "hitting it hard" but we haven't done abs in the past few days. We need to start back with that. Our bike ride yesterday went well and I enjoyed our swim today. It's slow moving, but we will get there.
So, the big triathlon news these days is that J. Lo just completed her first triathlon...in Malibu. Tough life, huh J. Lo? Anyway, she finished a half mile swim, an 18 mile bike and a 4 mile swim in 2 hours, 23 minutes and 38 seconds. Kayle and I have decided we need to finish in less than 2 hours and 23 minutes. We are competitive at all. I think we can do it, though. In the same race, Matthew McConaughey finished in an hour and a half. We also decided if we were running a race with him, we might be able to finish in an hour and a half just to keep up with his shirtless body. Too bad he's a Texas fan...
That's the news folks...
