Day 246: Greater than through love and support: Journey with the Cape Fear Heart Walk and Adam Freeman

wow..what a day..up at my butt in gear and got to the soon as I hit the door. I turned tail and went back out and hit the street and ran again. It was great. The first time Adam ever had me try and run, back months ago, I could barely get down the sidewalk to the first traffic circle from the, I left and not only did I pass that traffic circle, I kept on going and got almost to the end of the road at Eastwood and the only reason I turned around was I knew i had to get back to train! :) I arrived at exacty 6:58 am and was ready to go!
The only soreness was a little in my hip and some in my right knee. Otherwise, I was good to go!
As I said last week, Adam said this week started a whole new level for me and us. I have seen this "oxygen express" room the whole time. In fact we have been in there a few times to used the machine. Basically, the music overhead plays a few minutes and then theres a beep..when it beeps you have a few seconds to go to the next machine..and you do this for 30 minutes. Adam got me set up on the machines..I think there were 12 of them, working everything you can imagine. In between each machine I have to do the bike to keep my heart rate up and I have to be at level 12 (then 14) and keep the bike at over 100 rpm's....oh boy! this was the butt kicker extraordinaire! Let me tell you! I was drenched getting set up...but then...doing the routine..moving from one to the other..never stopping and doing as many reps as possible was..well, intense. When I got done it was 7:40 and we decided to try and get in round two..and I almost made it...just shy a couple of machines! Like I said, it was amazing!
So, it looks like this is where I am going to be for this week and maybe longer...
I also signed up for my first could not have been more perfect..NC Public Health for goodness sake! I am really looking forward to it!
