Big news friends!
Bust first a word from our puppy sponsors:
Brie has lost her stage fright and is rocking’ the nub 🙂
Okay, are you ready?
I ran a shocking 6 minutes yesterday!
It was amazing. I professed my love to the treadmill and promised to return to continue our love affair in 2 days. I mean, I have to be careful not to take this relationship too quickly!
I spent a total of 30 mins on the ‘mill. I walked for 5 minutes, jogged for 2 mins, then repeated x 3 with a nice cool down at the end. It was great! The pace was an easy 9:40 min/mile per PT orders.Needless to say, I had a big ol’ goofy grin plastered across my face the whole time. Yes, I’m that girl.
Now, if you haven’t fallen out of your seat yet, I have even more shocking news to share:
I swam today without feeling like I was going to drown! I know, I am such an athletic marvel. I will be signing autographs later, please contact my agent.
In all seriousness though, I am so happy that things are seriously starting to fall together. Last week Iw as feeling pretty silly telling people I was taking up triathlons in the same breath as telling them I can’t bike ’cause I have bursitis, my ankle doesn’t let me run yet, and I have a near death experience every time I swim. Oh, and the race is in a month. NBD. I think people were taking bets on how long it would take until the nice lifeguards need to intervene. All those “ye of little fath” people are eating their words, take that skeptics! 🙂
Does anyone have any advice to help good swims happen more often? (you know, be a little lee-newsworthy)
