If it doesn't kill me...

If it doesn't kill me, it will make me stronger.

Or faster.


Actually, I'm feeling pretty good right now, but about an hour ago, I thought I might transpire in the swimming pool if I had to sprint another 25 metres.  Then I sprinted another 25 metres...

I'm still here.

Short update on me: I'm starting to feel more normal again.  Not as consistently crappy as I've felt lately.  Maybe this cold is actually starting to go away.  

My body isn't sore anymore.  Well, that's not true.  My body isn't sore from the fall anymore.  Yesterday, I gave into peer pressure and did a bunch of lunges with my running friends, and now I'm sore.  The moral of the story: don't give into peer pressure.  Wait.  Hang on, maybe not all peer pressure is bad?

Have a good night everyone!

Yesterday's HBBC points: 6 (4.5 mile run, 10 minutes stretching, f/v)
Today's HBBC points: 7 (60 minute coached swim, f/v)
Week to date: 14
Total: 52


  1. Lunges are a killer. When I did classes at the gym, lunges were always part of it and I hated it. My thighs would burn the next day.

  2. That 25 m probably did you more good than all the previous ones together. Amazing how much further you can swim even when you think your arms are falling off.

    That peer pressure thing is tricky. Sometimes good, sometimes not so.

  3. ahhhh...lunges. Oh boy am I paying the price for some of those right now, too!! Now my bootcampers are going to get a good dose of them today. Hopefully I can lead bootcamp this morning. I'm barely walking, let alone demonstrating all the moves they need to do today :p
