Feel the Burn, Baby!

Today the weather changed!!!! Yesterday it was 60 and sunny...I rested, today 40 and blustery...I ran. So I do an easy warm-up of around 15 minutes, I start feeling the "fat burn" evidence that I've been laying off exercise and laying on the pounds! I'm happy! A good sign! So I hit the hill repeats again! 7 of them and I jogged back down on each one. Here's what I'm doing...burning more calories in less time! I am sucking air but lovin' it! Maybe I'll be back to a regular course of training, soon? I seriously doubt I can be race ready very soon but if I can JUST KEEP on the very other day pattern!!!
Well, much to do today, The African Choir is in town, also, I hear through the faith based grapevine that several Haitian orphans may be making their way to Springfield. Sandy and I have been talking......Peace!!

Hill repeats are definitely a great way to burn tons of calories quickly. Nice job, buddy!

Nice job on the hill repeats!

I'm sure the choir will inspire you, and how wonderful that your community is embracing some of the Haitian orphans. That is such a sad situation.

ugghhhhh I hate hill repeats but they make you faster and stronger.

Poor kids of Haiti. Hopefully some will find a home, a good home

Oh wow, I love hearing that you and your wife are talking about possibilities...I have always wanted to adopt or foster a child. Keep us posted on that one! Great job sucking in air, can't say I really like doing that but keep at it!

Hill repeats are awesome, nice work. You're getting back in the game the right way and soon you'll be race ready and where ya wanna be. Happy Weekend!!!

Tengo Hambre!

    Man I got hungry while I was running today! I guess I forgot to take in enough calories! It cost me the last couple of miles some disco...
