So last week was the kickoff for the fall season of TNT. Good turnout and I recognized a few of the mentors- so I foresee an awesome season ahead. J
Saturday…3 miles running in the rain. Boo. I am just not a fan of the rain while running. It’s very detrimental to my mood. It makes me cranky. I set out Saturday morning, to run 3 miles. With a migraine. Woo. At about a mile in I started to get nauseous every time I started to run, so I ended up walking a large portion of the route. I have never wanted to quit as badly as I did that morning. I was in pain and out of breath… sick and alone. But I was far from my car, and therefore left with no choice other than to continue the route just to get back to my car. I was a little miffed that I didn’t see my coach at all on the route. This is my first go-round at “running” and I am positive that I need tips and pointers.
After the training I headed over to the Fundraiser that me and my team from work have been planning for weeks! Zumba®! We had a great turnout, and raised about $800! It was awesome to see everyone dancing up a storm and enjoying themselves. I will post some pics here soon.
Three weeks until my first half marathon. And I am really starting to get nervous. I don’t doubt my ability to finish…just the event itself…I have never done anything like this before, so I have tons of questions and I don’t know what to expect. But I know it’s gonna be great!
And then once the Minneapolis half marathon is finished…training can really begin for the Nike Women’s half marathon in October. I also want to do the Minneapolis Duathlon at the end of August. A bunch of my friends are doing it, so I suppose now I have to. But I need a bike first. J
