Tough Mudder: Week 2

Respect your efforts, respect yourself. Self-respect leads to self-discipline. When you have both firmly under your belt, that's real power. -- Clint Eastwood

I'm serious about this stuff folks. I'm gonna make it to the Tough Mudder come October! I made it through the first week alive. If the increased exercise didn't kill me, I was sure work from school was sure to finish the job. I ran 5 days, for a total of 17 miles! It was an average of close to 3.33 miles a run. I was pretty sore the first few days, but got my appetite back and some long-lost energy. Office work drains everything out of me, so this increased exercise will help.

***btw, I am still looking for team mate commitments. I have an offer from a few friends back home, but want to make sure I'm not missing any online friends who want to join in the fun.

I plan on increasing my speed this week to make it no less than 3.5 miles a run. With the schedule coming up on campus over the next two weeks, I'm sure to need a lil push. Now I'm hungry again, off to grab a bite to eat before finishing up this seminar presentation and guest lecture!
