Literally. As you may know I’ve been a part of The Sisterhood since its inception over a year ago. I have participated in most of the challenges even though all of the challenges have been about weight loss and I don’t have any weight to lose. But, so many times I have been inspired by others to keep on running. Just to keep working towards bettering myself. I’ve come a long way, let me tell you. I’m at a point where I’m excited that I get to get on the treadmill and run 6 miles (which is on my training schedule for today). Two years ago I might have known I was going to run, but I wouldn’t have run 6 miles or been looking forward to it.
The Sisterhood has a new challenge starting today. It’s the Spring Fling. It feels like spring here today. What with the rain and clouds and cozy-like weather. Spring can hang out in Northern Nevada for as long as it likes.
So about this new challenge. We are teaming up. I didn’t participate in the last team challenge because it was all about who was going to be the biggest loser. I would be a hinderance to my team because I have nothing to lose. So when the call came out for all those interested, I raised my hand high and said “ME!”, but only if there is a team with other non-losers. (And I say that with respect. The losers? Those who are losing weight? They are awesome!) So far it is me and Tobey. We are trying to come up with a fun team name, but I’m creatively challenged, so hopefully Tobey can help us out.
Our first challenge starts next Monday. It is completing the 30 Day Shred. I did this last year when The Sisterhood first did it, and man did I hurt for the first 4 days. But it was awesome. I’ve been scared to go back to it though. Not because it’s hard and you sweat a lot, because you do. But because you don’t do any one thing for longer than 90 seconds. This is a HUGE pro in many ways, but for me it was so hard to get back on the treadmill and just run for 30 minutes. So I’m nervous. I’m not sure I will have the time to do it every day in the month of March. Team In Training has to be my priority and I don’t want to wear myself out by overdoing the exercise. So, I will be participating, but I will only be doing it on days that I run and only after I run. That way the hard mental part will be done with. I may not be able to walk, but I’m sure that the Shred will make me stronger which will, in turn, help my running. So wish us luck!
(Oh, I forgot to mention and I’m too lazy right now to go back and find all the info, but I did awesome in the Sisterhood Olympics! I came away with some gold, silver, and bronze medals out of the deal!)
