My block jog challenge

Friday, February 01, 2008


Well I am doing a block challenge. I am on week 3 now. I started it because I found myself getting stuck in a rut. So I decided to give myself a small mini goal. I decided to challenge myself to a block walk/jog challenge, were I wanted to start small and work myself up to a bigger challenge so I started with my first week jogging a minimum of 1 block, and then the next week I work my way up to 2 blocks and so on and if I feel like running more than I run/walk/jog more and this way at least I am doing something everyday (or just about). I am on week 3 now and last night I jogged 2 and 1/2 miles. I start my weeks every Sunday. I find it really enjoyable. My hope is to someday work up to a 5K. Anyway I love doing this and I love jogging in my neighborhood. It gives me a nice view and I can jog all over and different in directions if I choose to mix it up a bit. In the last 4 days I have lost 1.6lbs. Yeah me. Wish me luck

    Congratulations!What a great start. I started by walking our building's hallway for 6 minutes since my Doc makes us walk 6min's, I figured it would be safe. I added a minute as I felt up to it and kept doing this until now I am able to walk 30 minutes on a treadmill!

    Keep up the great job!

    You have given me some motivation to start jogging on my treadmill. I have only been speed walking on an incline, but maybe now I should start tonight by adding some jogging and working my way up like you!! Glad I read your blog!! Kudos to you!!
