I know that when you think of me, you really can't help but compare me to LL Cool J.
It's uncanny, really.
If you don't know who I'm talking about then you are either:
A) younger than me,
B) older than me, or
C) unaware of the amazing genius of the man who knows that the Ladies Love Cool James.
I know this lady does; can I get a
up in here?
Um, anyhoo. If you follow me on Twitter--and actually read my tweets--then you'll know that January has been the month of #nomoreexcuses and #FitFluential (!) and #OpHardCoreFit (!!) and #makeitcount (!!!)
While I'm trying to be reasonable about how fast I jump back into training, I'm also trying to convince myself that I am fine and that I don't have to be afraid of every little twinge when I work out.
So, with that in mind, I started running. Just a little bit on the treadmill. While wearing my Tommie Coppers (again, I bought them and this is not a paid review). It didn't hurt.
I started lifting weights again. It didn't hurt.
I started running outside. It didn't hurt. I ran a little further with Ann Marie. We ran again, a little further. And then, last Saturday, we ran 3.1 miles. That's 5k. A race distance feels pretty meaningful.
AND THEN, TODAY I got to meet 3 girls from Twitter/blogland: Lindsay, Stacie, and Rebecca (who, for some reason I called Rachel for the first hour, and she was too polite to correct me!) They joined Ann Marie and I to run 4 (FOUR, QUATRE, CUATRO) miles! We celebrated our meetup by finishing up with some froyo!
*Full disclosure: I have only been writing this blog for 13 months.
