Sorry to disappoint but there is no video. #1-I felt a little awkward suggesting it and #2-I think it might have been distracting (and this was dang near an Olympic event you know). For those who are seriously interested in hearing my potty mouth and watching my body collapse and fail me, I will perhaps make a home video when I’m recovered here.
So, I really knew I had no chance of winning here:) I’m a 35 year old woman, not a SUPER CUT 30 year old man like “the Enforcer”. Women start off at a disadvantage because they have more body fat, less muscle and less strength per unit of body weight compared to men. This is my justification anyway for why “Fred, aka "the Enforcer"
Rambling Revelations...... Strength training and running are different for me. Mind over matter just doesn’t work quite the same. I can honestly say I don’t think I’ve ever “bonked” running. By “bonked” I mean completely shut down where my legs will not move. I’ve slowed down, I’ve definitely felt extremely fatigued but I’ve not yet hit the point where I physically CAN’T put one leg in front of the other-I'm sure that point exists but I can't get there. I quit before I get there.... Weightlifting, strength training, I’ve definitely hit that point. My triceps completely fried at about 2 minutes 30 seconds and my arms turned to noodles and were physically UNABLE to lift my body.
Anyway, I meant to type about one paragraph about this and then talk about running and racing and WHY it is that I am so apprehensive to run races these days....chicken sh*t....
