Got my butt kicked today...

...and loved it!!

My trekking class at the gym is hardcore. Remember I told y'all about it? Well I have been going for the past couple of weeks and am AMAZED at the improvement there has been to my running. Last Thursday I ran 5 miles in less than 50 minutes! 5 miles!! Remember when I thought this was a big deal?

Today our instructor must have woken up feeling a little sassy because she was...something. We ran 4 1/2 miles of HILLS. H-I-L-L-S, people. And if that wasn't enough, after each mile she made us run sprints (3times), do (30) pushups, and then spend 3 minutes moving fast on the stair-stepper. The the first minute back on the treadmill we did shoulder presses with 15 pd. weights. Then it was time to run hills for another mile so we could do it all over again. Craziness.

I have never sweat so much or worked so hard. Or felt so good...afterwards.
