First Jog in Years Today
Monday, February 11, 2013
Thanks to my wonderful daughter, who hasn't given up on me, I am now signd up to do a 5K in mid-May. Bless her heart for asking me to join her like she always does. I decided to surprise the daylights out of her this time by accepting. The next day I invited a close friend, who has been making great progress and good life changs lately, to do it with me. She is seriously thinking about it.
I am so happy with my new-found will power and motivation. It's what kept me jogging on my first jog in years today. When I got tired I would convince myself to just jog slower rather than to walk. I kept setting little, reachable goals like, "Just get to the end of the hall, and if you're no more tired than you are now, you can keep going." it worked. I made it 30 minutes doing walking / jogging intervals, favoring the jogging just a bit more than half.
My promise to myself: to be comfortable (ish) jogging the full 30 minutes in 3 weeks from today.
