You know how I have always said I have no interest in running? How I don't want to, never have and never will? I dont know what happened but the other day I read a spark article about starting to run. How you could run a mile, straight. I was thinking no way..I sure as heck don't want to run but I read it anyway. It said its a 4 week program where the first week you walk 4 minutes then run 1 minute then repeat and then the next week you walk 3 minutes run 2 etc....
It said you have to commit to this program for 4 or 5 days a week.
Gave me something to think about. Do I want to run? Do I want to run a mile. Is it different if I call it jogging. What about my knees? And my back?
Yesterday at the races, I went walking through this beautiful fairground's in the trees. I was walking and then I thought, I wonder if I could even run a full minute? So I got my stopwatch and I jogged (where noone could see me cause it wasn't pretty!!) And I made it to a full minute. Then I walked for 4 minutes and did it again and it was harder but I made the minute. It is my little secret but I'm telling you.
I jogged for 2 minutes yesterday, lol. Talk about small steps.
I'm thinking about whether I want to make this a challenge for myself to run aMile straight and do this program for 4 weeks. I will let you know What I decide.
