Sore.

It's so weird how things can change in a matter of months.

This time last year, I was in high school, stressing about senior year and all of my responsibilities.  Now?  I'm in the Air Force, stressing about my friends and their bad life choices.

But I think I talked about enough of that stress in my last post.

Yesterday I had my DEP work-out, and while it wasn't as bad as the last one, it was still challenging.  We had to do a 30 minute non-stop run, and complete at least 5 laps (each single one being half a mile).

Well, I didn't hear when the commander called time, so I ended up running an extra lap unintentionally.  Oops.  6 laps. 3 miles.  I felt like I was going to fall over from exhaustion.

Then this morning was leg day at the gym, and the entire work-out I fantasized about taking a deliciously long bath, followed by a nap.

And I was able to take a little 30 minute cat-nap before my friend Ashley, a girl in my DEP group, called me up seeing if I wanted to work out with her.

Mentally I was like, "Nooooooooo, I'm sleepy.  And my legs are tired.  And my brain is tired.  And my back hurts."  But, being the trooper that I am, I agreed.

The Gos is great motivation.
For the first time in the history of ever I actually completed a trail in it's entirety. In total we did 5 miles, 100 push-ups, and 100 sit-ups.  And my body is in pain.  But it's a good type of pain.  A type of pain that will make me stronger.

And, while tomorrow I will most likely feel the worst of my soreness, I can at least take comfort in the fact that a few months ago, I would not have been able to run 3 miles non-stop and then 5 miles the next day.

I am hoping that I completely recover by the weekend, because I have a date with JB, plus I think I'll be hanging out with friends as well.  Ah, and speaking of JB, last night when we were talking he told me that he liked me and literally, verbatim, I said: "Um, well.  I feel like I'm a really awkward person.  But I like you too."  So now that I've addressed the fact that I'm really awkward and shy at times, I feel a little bit better.  The rest of the conversation went smoothly and we talked about macaroni, bacon, and ice cream.  And how excited I am for the Hobbit movie premiere.
Bilbo Baggins
Martin Freeman is a perfect Bilbo Baggins, in my humble opinion.

Seriously though.  Martin Freeman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Lee Pace, and Billy Connolly.  All in the same movie? Yes please.

Anyway, I am now going to take yet another super long, super hot bubble bath in order to soothe my aching muscles.

Adieu.

  3. You are sore but you really have come an incredibly long way in quite a short amount of time. It's pretty damn awesome you were able to run like that. I think can't really walk like that. I've never really looked at how far I walk though. It's nice you and JB got like that too. He was probably feeling as awkward as you did.

    1. Nah, he's actually really smooth about things, but I think he finds my awkward shyness endearing. Which is awesome.

  6. Yep, so much for me getting into shape, you're doing a way better job.

    Whenever I feel lazy I should just reread this post and note how you're able to do way more than me. :P

  8. According to my calculations, you shouldn't be able to type after all that working out. According to my calculations, you should also be dead about now. You must be stronger than the bionic woman. Anywho, I want to play Bilbo Baggins one day. If not in a movie, at least in a youtube video.
