Excited to say that at 51, I started jogging... I am up to 30 minutes, which for me is huge. All my life I wanted to jog/run, however my upper respiratory allergies kept me from it. I felt I couldn't breathe well enough. Found out that was truly not the case. At 15, first time trying, I got so out of breathe I barely made it home. Found out I was allergic to dogs (had a Chihuahua). So I was afraid to try.
Then, as I would work and and loose weight, as I've one umpteen times, I wasn't wearing the proper running shoes and my feet would kill me, I get too out of breath (cuz I was trying to go to fast). Now, by the grace of God I've put all the pieces together. Started with walking, then faster walking, then intervals--I would jog as much as I could--then go back to walking. I progressed to jogging 3 minutes and walking 1 minute for 30 minutes (Been playing with this one for about the past month). I began to dig deeper and run longer, low and behold I can now jog for 30 minutes!!!
So its never to late and nothing is impossible.
