Ohhh, My Aching....

I think it might be easier to count the places that don't hurt than to list the ones that do. Between skating and falling, I am feeling the pain. I think I need to go skating more often. I saw a shirt on a guy at the gym the other day that said, "Pain is weakness leaving the body." I loved that shirt, and I have thought of it several times since then.

I was planning on doing some weights at lunch, but I chickened out. I just can't seem to get motivated for the weights. BORING. Ok, Ok, I will try to go tomorrow. :) However, I did finally get brave enough to go to Take...the First Step which is a Women's walking/running group. I have been wanting to go since early December when I got sick. So, I finally went. It was so much fun! There were other women there walking and some running. We did 100 meters "easy", 100 meters fast, 200 meters "easy", 200 meters fast, 300 meters "Easy", 300 meters fast, 400 meters "Easy", 400 meters fast and then we went back down with 300/300, 200/200, 100/100. It was really fun and the time went really fast. The goal was the make the second part faster than the first. I am really glad I went even though I am SORE!
