Plugging Along

Or, should I say jogging along? πŸ™‚ I have jogged twice this week and it feels great!

Monday I decided to try jogging on the treadmill at the gym and see how far I could go without stopping. Since it has been a few months since I jogged for 30 minutes straight I wasn’t sure what I was capable of. I was able to jog at 4.5 mph for 15 minutes and back to my old fastest speed of 4.3 for 10 minutes.

Today I was able to jog for 20 minutes at 4.5 mph and took a 5 minute break of jogging at 4.3 mph in the middle. So, I think I jogged for two miles today without stopping. It may have been slow, but I didn’t walk.
I’m pretty excited about this and, as any person who get regular exercise will tell you, it feels wonderful!!!
I’ve also been journaling my food daily, staying pretty well within calories and peaking at the scale a few times. (whispering)…and it’s working…. Needless to say, weigh-in isn’t officially until Friday for me, but I’ve been doing a little happy dance a few times this week.
I hope you’re all having a good week!

    That is really exciting! I haven't been brave enough to attempt jogging yet, but I hope to add it in sometime soon. πŸ™‚
