As you know, I have been training seven girls on the couch potato to 5k plan. Some have moved on and are ready to train for something else. The others are on week 3 and continue to blow me away each week. If you've ever run, you know that it is a love/hate relationship at first and overtime that goes away.
Some of the best things about running is that it is the time just for you. It's a major stress reliever. And you get cool medals. Cathy, on of the new trainees was so inspired, she wrote her own post about it the other day. It's quite hilarious and the parts about me deceiving her are all lies. Just ignore that. She still needs new shoes and a sports bra, so please encourage this girl to do so!!
I don't know where you are, but it is chilly here and the wind has started blowing pretty intensely. I love cooler temps but hate wind....especially when running.
I recently went back to boot camp for the first time since my surgery and really just took it easy. Burpees were a bit difficult but when are they not? I enjoyed being back with my line of girls sweatin' it out. We are trying to convince Sarah to join us in running so any manipulative messages would be appreciated.
Please join me in congratulating these girls and leave them comments of motivation to keep it up. You really can be a runner and like I always say," Running can save your life."
Oh and P.S. the girls nicknamed me Jillian Jr and are getting me shirts. I love it! But, I do think I am more like Bob. But, I guess that would be weird to have your shirt say Bob when you are clearly a woman. My teenager would love it.
