Recovery

Well, I think I have finally recovered from all the excitement on Saturday.  I had to.  Coach Sam, seeing my commitment to the process, has decided it’s time to step it up, so yesterday I did my first hill sprint. Yeah — no — that’s just what it sounds like.  I jog *a mile* to a hill, sprint up the hill, and jog home.  It was awful.

Let me say that again so you understand.  It was awful.

Carrie, my friend/dental hygienist, asked today, “But wasn’t it great when you got to the top?”

No.  No, it wasn’t.  I was seriously, literally nauseous.

Plus then I had to jog *a mile* back home.

But . . . why not?  I mean, eight weeks ago I didn’t think I could run a mile.

How do you like me now?
