So I have been reading some SPpl's blogs about them going for a run, or running a marathon, or a 5K, and I really wanted to try. So I have been trying slowly but surely, at night, in the elementary school yard across the street, and at first I couldn't even jog 15 seconds (I was counting in my head). So then I told myself, stop counting and just put your cell phone's stop watch on in your pocket (I push the button when I just start jogging my first foot fwd). Slowly, it went from 2min 16 seconds, to then 4min 24 seconds then 4 mins 47 seconds!! :D I was soooo happy!!!
But I have noticed that when I jog (I don't say run bc I consider running really fast, what I do is really slow, it's a jog) I don't go very far in distance, but my heart beats much faster. For instance, if I were speed walking, say in those 4 mins 47 sec I could walk a farther distance and my heart wouldn't be beating that fast. Can someone explain that to me?
Also, what do you do when the weather starts getting more chilly? When I jogged those 4.47 and I came in, I started sweating sooo much (I wasn't sweating outside really bc it was chilly here in Montreal a few days ago) but then I developed a sore throat. So how do you dress up to go jog/run without overheating yourselves and not under dressing yourselves?
Just wanted to thank you all for your inspiration!!! :) Thanks for inspiring me to 1. start walking faster and now, 2. start jogging. I hope that in the spring I'll be ready to start running :)
