I apologize

Sorry it has been awhile since I have posted but it has been pretty busy with visitors around our house lately. I am happy to report that I have made both appointments with my trainer this week. Yay! Time to tell a trainer story... tonight she tells me that I am a joy to work with...lol. She tells me that I am the only person that she tells to do 5 more 10 more reps and I smile and laugh and then always give it my best. I figure why not smile and laugh... the workout is going to hurt even more if you don't. I didn't notice that I did that until she pointed it out. 
Pushup Challenge I have started over at the beginning. I needed a fresh start. This weekend a good group of friends is going to do the Maribelles 5K. I must say I am a little (lot) nervous about getting shin splints again. So I think I am just going to take it easy and try to beat my time from the Lunar run which I am hoping will not be too difficult since it was SLOW :). But my goal right now is just to get better so that I can improve my running for my triathlon in October and complete the 1/2 marathon in November.

You ARE SO RIGHT about smiling and laughing while you're in pain. Honestly, I find that it hurts a little less if you just "go with it" instead of trying to fight it.

Thank you for your comment on my blog! It sounds like you're fully back on track workout wise, which is hard to do after you've been in a funk! Congrats and best of luck at your 5k!

Dude, if I don't laugh at the pain, I cry and I really hate to cry, so laughing it is! :)

I'm doing the push-up challenge too--the wussy girl ones. Hurts so good. :)
