Running Through It

Source: FriendshipQuotes (view)
Does anyone else play two sports?

I've been training for a half marathon, and now that the weather is nice, I have been playing tennis. My body hurts. Literally the whole thing. Legs, knees, arms, back, everything. Last year I was running regularly and playing tennis, and it wasn't a problem. I think it's the whole half marathon thing.

I'm to the point in my training where I'm running 5 miles on the regular runs, and 8, 9, 10 on the long runs. It's getting a little rough.

Even though it's hard, I'm still sticking to the training program by running in the morning and playing tennis at night. I'm sure I'll get used to it after a few weeks.

I like this Charlie Brown picture. It really captures the feelings of an intense workout.

  4. That is a TON of exercise and activity. I couldn't imagine - no wonder your body is a little tired, lol. But, you can do it. Quotes always help with perseverance...just when you think you can't go anymore! Good luck girl, I am quite inspired by your determination and motivation!!!
