I went out for a jog this morning! Woohoo! I lasted all of 10 minutes, and some of that was walking - as a few of you said in the comments from my previous post, it is a lot different jogging outside than on a treadmill! And of course I chose the day that the humidity came back to South Texas - I am sweating from the top of my head on down! But I did it, and that's what matters! Baby steps, I am all about the baby steps.
Did I mention that I made my son Max get up and go with me? On four hours of sleep, no less! (He and his friends stayed up late watching Pulp Fiction.) But once he got going, he ran circles around me, ran backwards, sprinted...oh, to have his energy! Even with all of that, I was glad to have his company for my first-ever outdoor yog, er, jog.
I'll have another opportunity to run on Monday morning (alas, no workouts due to Memorial Day) - I'm gonna shoot for 12 - no, wait...13 minutes!
