I'm a little scared because this morning I'm running with a friend who is going to kick my not-so-little tail. :)
I'll let you know how it goes, but I won't lie, all morning I've had this sense of both anticipation (it'll be nice to have someone to run with for a change) and dread (this is gonna really hurt).
Just to let you know what I've done so far this week....

I think these were my fastest times yet!! However, last night I felt like every muscle in my lower back down was screaming. Sigh. My awesome husband worked on me a little bit. His expertise and experience in the realm of running and pain is coming in handy. He knew right where to massage and man did it hurt! This morning my knees and ankles are still angry...let's just hope I can keep up with my girl Angie. She's a real runner and I'm the newbie. This should be good and humbling, folks. :)
My goal for this week is another 20. I don't think I'm quite ready for a 25. Maybe next week, depending on how my knees are holding up.
What are you guys up to this week? I wanna hear from you! :)
