Awesome! So maybe there is hope for me after all! (now if only I could get this pesky life thing to give me a little break here and there and let me workout!)

Heh. Very nice. All the talk of high test levels and such is making me a bit nervous.

Aww Steve,

Fear not. Unless you're sharing a bed with me, you'll have nothing to worry about!

He asked me what would be my workout and I said, (and I wonder where I got this from!) "Just ten 100m sprints. Run, walk back and repeat."

Then, smart-assed, middle aged guy said, "Mind if I do it with you?" And before I could think, my ego responded, "No problem!"

Not only did I beat him in every round, but I got a little stitch in my side in round 6- it was gone during the walk back to start and I started getting cocky and running backwards I was STILL beating the guy!

And the thing is, I felt like I had a solid warm up- I really didn't get to the level of thinking I would die.

Yippee!
Awesome.

Another running update

I'm a member of a (professional) club which has a gym in it that nobody dare break a sweat in. And since my football coach has called us D-linemen (gender don't matter in tackle football, I'm told) "fat and slow," I've taken MWF mornings at said club to improve my running.

I've decided to do one minute run @ 10mph/one minute walk at 3mph for ten rounds.

#1. I had NO IDEA I could run 10 mph
#2. I was shocked and delighted to find that I could sustain this for 60 secs
#3. I went from being like 62 or 63 fastest on the team (of 65) to being solidly in the middle a few weeks back. Now, I'm solidly in the top middle. 25th maybe?
#4. I have NO DIMPLES on my legs anymore!!!

But the reason I mentioned the club is that I've gotten the reputation as "That freelancer who runs really fast." And I GOT SOME WORK because of it!

So thanks to the advice I've gotten here, I'm gettin' paid! Whoo hoo!

I love reading your updates. That is so awesome.

I ran 10 X 100 with my sister last night. All intervals were sub 17 seconds and I felt really good. I hit 15 seconds on 4 of them, no world record times but fast as crap for me. My sister was right there with me. Did I mention that she took 22nd overall out of 1200 at the Danskin triathlon last weekend. Today my calves are killing me.

All of this illustrates quite nicely the value of sport and competition in sharpening the saw.

Kick ass, Jamila.
