How am I feeling going into Week 3? I'm pretty excited for the challenge. I'm not feeling the greatest due to my allergies, and I fell up the stairs yesterday so my shin is severely bruised, but I think I can do it! Starting Feb 1st, I'm going to have some running buddies who are training for a triathlon, so it'll be a nice change. Onto Week 3...

Way to go! You're staying close to your goals or exceeding them! I'm sorry about the bruise and the allergies. That's no fun. I jammed my pinkie toe this morning. I'm hoping I can walk in my shoes tomorrow. :) I'm sure the running buddies will be a nice change. I always enjoy exercising more with friends.
