Day 93- My first Jog!

Tuesday, June 05, 2012

A while back, I posted a blog about wanting to become a runner. I kept up my walks in the park, and continued to do my exercise DVD's, but every time I tried to jog, my hamstrings would tighten up so badly I would have to stop. Today, I committed to walking 5 miles in the park, and it happened. On my second lap around the pond, I just started jogging. I was a bit apprehensive, and I waited for the tightening of my hamstrings, but it didn't happen. So, I did 1/4 of a mile. When I felt like I couldn't take anymore, I walked until I came to that same spot where my feet decided to lift off the ground at a rapid pace, and I did it again, and again, and again! I jogged 1 mile today in the park!!!!! Wooo Hooo!!!!! I am excited to go back to the park tomorrow and do it all again! I AM FINALLY BECOMING A RUNNER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What are some of the feats that you have accomplished with fitness?

Inch by inch it is a cinch!

    Good for you. I started the same way. I hated running. I have knee problems ,so I was apprehensive at first. I go to a track. I just decided to run and I ran half a mile, then further. Keep it up ! emoticon

    Woohoo! That is exactly how I started running too! I had tried and tried but never could run. One day I was walking on a trail and suddenly decided to try again... Just out of the blue. And kept going, which was the crazy part. I had never been able to run in my life! One year later I was running a full marathon.
    Keep up the good work!
