Jogging Update

Thursday, November 29, 2012

So in preparation for the 5k on Sunday, I jogged for 15 minutes on Tuesday (first time I'd jogged since the LAST 5k in April - mmmm, love me some procrastination). I figured I'd build up over the course of the week and take Saturday off from running and pamper the crap outta myself.

Last night I jogged for 30 minutes. In true chubster-fashion, I jogged up to the grocery store since I needed to get eggs and lemon juice (I put it in my water to make it not taste like pipes). But, other than the uphill parts, I felt surprisingly good! I had to keep reminding myself that pain was not the goal and that as long as I was jogging I could go as slow as I wanted. And, sure enough, every time I found a flatter stretch I'd regain my wind and feel like I could go on forever!

I'm feeling much better about Saturday now. I am actually feeling good enough today to consider doing 40 minutes today and 50 minutes on Friday. That way, come Sunday, I'll only have to do (at most) ten minutes more than I've already done this week. I'm a bit nervous about creating a problem, but still - this feels much more do-able than it looked on Monday!
