My SLOOOOOW woggin'!!

Saturday, November 21, 2009

Mile 1.5 of my 5K... I look like I'm walking! I certainly don't feel like it though. My husband and friends insist that I am jogging very slowly, but I think they are just trying to be nice.

But even if I am not running, I know I am burning more calories than I do when I walk because there is a difference in my HRM. Regardless, I just need to get over my insecurities with running & speed and just be proud of my accomplishments. You don't become a runner over night and that is something I need to accept. I am leaps and bounds away from where I was when I started C25K.

Now it's time to figure out how to stop being so hard on myself and start having fun on my runs!

    You did great! If you were sweating, you were certainly jogging! I assure you one day in the near future you are going to watch this and realize how much you have progress since that day, like your husband said: TU PUEDES!

By the way, your nickname is hilarious!

Cheers from Mexico

    I love this. I watched it three times. Yes, you are jogging, and you are putting your heart and soul into it! I'm so proud of you and I don't even know you! But I hope to get to know you better... you inspire me!

    Jogging, even if you do it SLOWER than walking, burns LOTS more calories than running! I learned that when I did track, in seventh grade.

You're definitely jogging!

    You're jogging! You definitely are. You can always work on speed later. We bigger girls aren't going to break records for speed and that's OK!

Congrats again!
