Jogging along...

Monday, May 14, 2012

I belong to a forum where one of the members has trained over the last year and is now running some half marathons. My eldest daughter does too.
I would often think "wouldn't it be nice to go out for a jog"...and if I tried about 30 seconds later I would be huffing and puffing and stop/stagger along for a bit then give up.

One of the reasons for joining Sparkepeople for me, was to loose weight and gain fitness and a trimmer, healthier me.
I didn't think about the jogging.

But I have been working on some of the goals and two weeks ago completed the 5k Walk Your Way on 5/6/2012. I am now working on the 5K Your Way Walk/Jog Plan and today completed day 6 which was Walk for 4 minutes, then jog for 1 minute. Repeat 5 more times. (Total workout time: 30 minutes) and I also walked for 5 minutes either side as a warm up and cool down type thing.

It was raining off and on and I had struggled with what I would do if I needed to get out and exercise and it was raining but I found it was OK. In fact it was fun. I kept thinking "when I get home I am going to have a lovely hot shower".
I did and gave myself a pedicure as well.

I just love what Sparkpeople is doing to me and my motivation.

I don't know if I will be running any marathons but I may well be doing a bit of jogging in the future!!
