Curse you fitness challenge!

So if you remember, my friend Amy and I are doing a fitness challenge this month - run 100 miles in the month of January.  Well friends, it ain't easy!  Yesterday we ran 7 miles through the country.  The weather was great, the scenery was wonderful and we were so proud of ourselves when we finished.  Today, OMG!  My legs are killing me!  In the words of my little G man - "curse you fitness challenge!"  To top my pain off, I asked Amy if she was sore.  Do you know what she said?  "No, but I have big muscles."  Big muscles, my ass!  Those are conditioned muscles as opposed to my "I'm taking the month of December off from working out" sore muscles.  I'll never take December off again (at least not until December 2011). So, what did I do today to help things out, we ran another 4 1/2 miles today!  What was I thinking? 

I did manage to get dressed today.  After crawling out of the shower, I shimmied my legs into my jeggings, threw on a sweater and put my feet into some boots.  If I drop something on the floor today, it will just have to stay there.  I can no longer bend down to get it. 15 miles down, 85 to go.

jeggings - Old Navy
gray t-shirt - Kohls
sweater - Loft
boots - Nine West
necklace - Handpicked
belt - came with some pants I bought


  1. Cutest boots in town, little missy. Not big muscles, just big legs, unfortunately. We be lookin' fine by February, I'm sure!

  2. Oh my gosh, I'm in love with this look - that sweater if beautiful, the color is perfection! Hope you feel better soon. I'm just signed up for a 12 week challenge with my MOPS group and am going to be hitting the gym for the first time in oh, 4 years. Eeeek! I'll be sore too for sure!

  3. 100 MILES IN JANUARY???? Hells bells - my philosophy has always been I don't run unless someone is chasing me with a weapon. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE to be sore from a good workout, but those days when it's difficult to lower oneself onto the toilet? Not so much. It sounds like that's about where you are. Props to you for taking on that challenge, and not only that, for looking hot to boot!
