I did it!

I started jogging today!  I have been wanting to do this for months and today I finally did it.  I have been looking up "learning to jog/run programs" and even had one bookmarked for the longest time.  Today at camp I picked up a pedometer to try and do at least 5000 steps a day, well I did 7503 after my jog.

So, this is how I did it.  I started out of the driveway at a quick pace and The Kinks playing in my ear.  Midway down the block I started a jog and continued.  I would say I did half jogging and half quick paced walking.  Now the program called for 20 minutes of quick walking but I broke it up today.  I did 10-15 of walking and jogging.  Tomorrow I will do quick paced walking.  I am very excited to do this.  I was very hot when I came back so I had a cool shower with some awesome sugar scrub from Bath and Body Works. I feel invigorated!

Here's to tomorrow!


  1. I am so proud of you! Yay!!! Doesn't it just pump you up and get you excited to do more? In spite of the heat or any sore muscles, it still makes a person feel great by getting outdoors and walking or running! I hope you continue to enjoy really is a great way to have some "me" time, too. So proud of you!


  2. I am so proud of you as running is certainly something I am not capable of doing... Bravo!
