I've also added the 100 Push Up Challenge to my training. I figured it was a safe thing to add to running, "safe" meaning no real risk of injury. I have done this challenge before, but never done it with the 'guys' push ups. The difference between the girl and guy push ups is staggering. It's clearly much more difficult but even my abs are sore! I've always been one to say that girls can do anything boys can do, probably even better if they really try, so I am determined to give this challenge all that I have.
As thrilling as push ups are....they are not the highlight of my week. For that, I will mention my first ever...9 mile run. Me. ME. I ran 9 miles. I ran up and down hills, I ran over creeks and over dirt roads. I ran in the wind because, IT'S ALWAYS WINDY, so I decided to just suck it up. I did it. I really ran 9 miles, I'm starting to think not only will I actually finish my first 13.1 mile run, my finishing time might not be as embarrassing as I once thought it may be.
Up next...10 miles. I'm beginning to think if I can do this, what can I not do?
