How'd the Running Go?

OMG...so hard! These folks are fast. We did a 20-25 min warm up run. There was a doctor/woman from Argentina who was off like a shot...She was fast! So, after the warm up (more like the wipe out for me), we ran up a hill and back with no recovery, not once...not twice...but FIVE times! Then, we did a 20-25 "recovery" run back. Now every one else was running at about 40%, I'd say I was at about 58% to try to keep up. I did, but it was killin' me!
One would think, after all that, they would let me lay down on the floor...noooo. Now it was time for some "core" workout:O Yes people, after all that we did crunches! I. WANTED. TO. DIE! But, I didn't, I did the crunches. These folks are really intense. I've definitely stepped up to a whole new level. It's either gonna kill me...or get me to Boston:P

  16. Good luck with the running. As hard as it seems, it does get addictive, no?

  17. You rock. I am so impressed.

    And I just read Manager Mom's comment...I wish I would become addicted to running. As opposed to, say, carbs. ;-)

  18. Wow - I'm tired just reading about this...

    BTW - I've been telling my brother (who's also training for the SF marathon) about your schedule. He agrees with me... good for you!
