If it hurts - It helps ?!

Okay, so I'm probably the only one who remembers that skit from SNL like 800 years ago but it is sooooooooooo fitting for me today.

I took on 5 Miles 2 Empty's challenge.

Legs Challenge.  Yikes.  Ouch.  Help.

So here's the damage.

Here's the warning: [say one word about the right thigh being bigger and we are going to have a huge throw down].

Say one word about the daisy dukes and Allie will come and tattoo your eyelids. [me/peanut - had a swim "party"{using that term loosely} Tuesday morning {starting day of challenge}]
The challenge. . . . .

Do lunges at least 3 times a week from Aug. 10 until Sept 10.
I think I already have internal bleeding, after two days.

Damn that is a tough challenge. My legs are so beat right now that stairs hurt really bad - lunges would end me. Good for you for stepping forward and taking this challenge!

/fail

Um, if you have internal bleeding, you may not be holding your form right. Very important it is to hold your form right.

Marlene said...

Those legs don't look like they need any work, but go for it!!

Your legs are as long as my entire body. I reserved the right to use your leg photos instead of mine...maybe they can be my after photos! ;-) (That's if anyone is still reading once they see the before photos!)

Rae said...

I'm loving your daisy dukes!

Allie said...

I think this challenge should be postponed until next month because I can't do it this month and if I can't do it then really? Is it worth doing? Probably not.

Also, this is me NOT talking about your right thigh. Do I get some kind of award?

Molly said...

ugh, I hate lunges. Give me squats any day.

thanks for the tip on the 1% incline on the 'mill....

I can say I am old enough to remember the SNL skit! But on to lunges--good for you. Sounds aching tough to me!

obxbchgrl said...

Let me get this straight. You're doing the Legs Love Lunges Challenge and Jamoosh's Hard Core Club? SRSLY, I want to be you when I grow up.

And now, because I am all kinds of crazy and competitive, I must do both. Thanks. Bunches.

BTW, what are you talking about with your right thigh? Are you drinking the kool-aid? Cause you know that's tainted right?

Aimee (I Tri To Be Me) said...

I'm with Marlene...I don't think your legs need to lunge challenge at all! Love the daisy dukes! I wish I was brave enough to wear those! :)

Erika said...

Hate lunges, but you can do them for me:) I will be there in spirit! And way to RoCk the dukes!

Melissa said...

First of all...your legs = awesomeness.

Secondly....ouch.

Syl said...

I.WOULD.KILL.FOR.YOUR.LEGS.
That's all!

MCM Mama said...

Umm, if I had legs like yours, I'd wear nothing but daisy dukes. Just sayin'

Gracie (Complicated Day) said...

I think your Dukes are cute!

Zaneta said...

I just joined the challenge too! Now to find someone to take my leg pictures for me!

Kelly Leigh said...

Good luck with the challenge; it will totally kill my running plans for the rest of the year, so a no for me. My legs feel enough pain on the trails. Must agree, your legs are already perfect, challenge or no challenge.

Rebecca said...

Your different font and size format always gets my attention and keeps me reading along. Thanks for sharing your adventures in life and running.

Rebecca said...

p.s. you could totally run 50 miles.

Matty O said...

Ow ow! Nice legs! haha.

Lunges... these suckers picked up my sprint big time last year. I would do them 3 times a week up and down the trail. People thought I was nuts. Not lying though, I was flirting with my HS 5k PRs.

Good for you! Keep it up!!!

(Make sure you have good form and don't let your knee go past your toe)

Adam said...

One of them is bigger than the other? You're a crazy person. Look the same to me!@

Stacie said...

Your legs looks amazing. I remember a time when I was 18ish when I had awesome legs with thighs that didn't touch. I'd trade you any day. I'm doing the challenge too. I'd be happy if my legs ended up looking like yours do now :)

Angie said...

Shut up right now- I might actually kill a few people if my legs would look like that afterwards. Hmmmm, I guess I could do some lunges. Like how many does this challenge entail?
