A new WooHoo today!

Thursday, December 08, 2011

It's been awhile since my last blog. I spent half of November sick, which put a damper on my exercise efforts. I quit jogging but kept up my walking routine for 60 minutes 6 days a week. I have been meaning to get back to my 5K training plan but this means I have to bring my dog home after a short 1 mile walk...which she hates. She thinks she's getting cheated. She's been doing the whole 3 miles with me everyday since I got sick. So in the last few days, it's been cold and wet here in Houston. Nobody has been at the park. So I decided to drop Rubie's leash and jog. Rubie stuck with me with a few fun chases after squirrels and birds, but always coming back when I called her. So first test passed! Next test: How far could I jog without stopping. Day 1...1/2 mile. Day 2...3/4 mile. Today....1 FULL MILE!!!!! Slow miles but still....I have never in my life been able to jog a full mile! Not even when I was a teen! Not only am I excited about this, but my body is happier for the activity. WooHoo....59 years old and can run a full mile! I wish I had Sparkpeople when I was younger! Those of you who are younger, I hope you take full advantage of what it has to offer. Develope a healthy lifestyle while you still have so much life in front of you. It makes all the difference in your quality of life!!!
