I hit my 800 miles this year.
Actually...over, but who's counting?
With the gorgeous weather yesterday, I couldn't hardly pass up an outside run.
On December 29th.
Then Mols and I took our 2 mile walk.
I am sore. And not from the measly 4 mile run/2 mile walk. All this HBBC cross training is doing something to me. I'm doing some Jillian Michaels workouts and she's kicking my butt. I love it.
In the past, I got into the habit of not wanting to try something new cuz with all the marathons we've done in 2008, there never seemed a time to pick something new up. I was always afraid I would be sore and not have time to recover before the next marathon. So, I got away from cross training, only to get in my runs during the week. And for a 'normal' sedentary person, that would be working out a lot. But since I've started this HBBC, it has gotten me invigorated to try new things. To cross train. And I really enjoy it. I love the soreness a new workout gives me. I love feeling strength in places I haven't for quite some time. And I know it's helping my running game.
