I did my 1.5 mile loop in about 20 minutes.  I walked a *little* less, and in totally different places, so that's good.  The first leg of my run was significantly longer, which is a huge accomplishment for me because there's a hill in there that I usually get to the top of and almost collapse.  But I made it to the top and kept going for about 70 yards or so!  Interestingly enough, it was my legs that were giving me the most trouble today, not my lungs.  I think it's because I just did Jillian yesterday.  I've tried to work my schedule out in my head to see if I can run on a day that isn't right after Jillian but I don't think it will work.  Ah, well.  My body will adapt eventually. 
And some good news: the next session for swim lessons at one of the Y's closest to me starts next week!  The sessions are 7 weeks long, so that puts me in the middle of April.  So then I'll probably do this thing the local high schools have got going called the Wildwood Master's swim club.  Basically they rent out their indoor pools for specific times during the week, and you can either buy a membership or pay $5 every time you go.  That should get me through until our public pool opens up for the summer.  Hopefully next month it will be warm enough for biking so I can get some of that in before the pool opens and then I can put it all together for a couple of months before the Tri!  Freaking out.  A little.  But I've been making good progress, especially the past couple of weeks, (more calories!  more protein!  thanks for that tip Timpani!), so I think I can, I think I can, I think I can....

You are doing so great! I can't believe how much progress you are making, plus adding Jillian Michaels. You are definitely challenging yourself and pushing your limits.
