Day 80 - Phew

Wednesday, September 18, 2019

The gym was physically challenging today. I can feel my legs getting so much stronger and so I have increased the speed and incline on the treadmill a bit. But lately I've been watching others on the treadmill, especially those jogging/running. I feel jealous of them. I've always wanted to be a jogger. I think it would be such a great cardio workout. So for about 45 minutes I debated trying to jog, just to see what it felt like. Why did I think so long about it? I felt self-conscious; everything on me jiggles, and I'm not very agile, so I was afraid I'd lose my balance as I picked up speed. Silly reasons, I know. Anyhow, after 45 minutes I finally worked up the courage and I increased the speed to a jog. Yes, every part of me jiggled, I felt very self-conscious, and I had to hang on for dear life so that I didn't lose my balance - but I did it. It was short lived (only a minute, ha!), but I did it! So my plan now is that every week I will try to add another minute of jogging to my 65 minutes on the treadmill. It's going to be a slow process, and in the end I might not really enjoy it, but at least I'll have tried.
