Yesterday was the big 6 mile day. The day before yesterday was the day that I let Lisa convince me to go to Tone Zone class with her, where we would do 200 squats and lunges. Today is the day that I can't lower myself into a chair to sit and type this post... it hurts too much.
Seriously... yes, I am very sore. BUT I am also very blessed. Yesterday after I finished my run (jog), I posted about it on facebook -- "Thank you Jesus, that it is finished -- 6 miles today." Not because I actually think that Jesus is on Facebook, but because I was SO FREAKING thankful to be finished with that run. I received so much encouragement through the replies to my post. I have a lot of great people in my life, and I am grateful. When I was finished running, I felt somewhat discouraged that I had stopped a few times and that my legs were feeling like rubberbands. I felt discouraged about the fact that I had done less than half of the distance that I've committed to run on May 6, and I did not feel good about it. However, it made me feel so much better about my efforts when I read all of the love on my facebook post. If you were one of the people who posted a note of encouragement to me, please know that it meant so much. I really needed that yesterday... Thank you.
