Me, the woman who sat on the couch a year ago and thought that gastric bypass surgery was my only hope actually jogged!
Me, the woman who didn't want to walk around the corner to the bus stop every day so much that she took cabs to and from work actually jogged!
To be honest, I've not been all that satisfied with the lack of a challenge that walking has been bringing me lately. I wanted something more, something that would push me like walking used to do. When I started walking I felt like I was climbing a mountain every day, like I had achieved something. Now it is merely exercise. I do it, but I am not straining to do it anymore. It has become almost too easy. I'm up to doing 3 miles in an hour.
So I ran a Google search on how to start jogging. It seemed simple enough:
- start out walking for at least 5 minutes
- start jogging and only do as much as you can without feeling like you can't breathe
- stop and resume walking until your breathing returns to a normal rhythm
- repeat the process over and over
Who IS this woman inside me? She is one tough cookie.
