What is this jogging thing?

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

So twice now I've gone to the park and ran/jogged/walked 3 miles. And I like it? Okay, so my "run" is really a slow jog/fast walk. But whatever. Normally I'm just a walker. I preferred it. But I'm kind of liking this setting a goal of a tree to run to and then seeing if I can get past it. I mean, I guess I can do it, and I'm not AS lethargic as I thought? Let's be real, it still takes me just as long to "run" as it did to walk last year, but I'm making an effort! :)

Tracking and Schedules:
Tracking goes really well during the week when I have a set schedule. When the weekend hits though...let's just say, I also need to plan those days more carefully. Thursday and Friday this week I work from 7:30AM to 9:30PM so I'll get home at 10PM. I won't be working out. I'm okay with that. Friday after work I'm going to a friend's house to help her with things for her daughter's birthday, and then Saturday is the party. I'll probably work a long shift on Sunday, and then Monday, and Tuesday evenings again, so we'll see how I do. Dinner is the hardest to track and plan on those evenings because I can't just pop over to the market after job #1 and get something I feel like eating. I have approx. 15 minutes to eat dinner in between jobs, depending on traffic.

In other news, I'm going to Nashville in 21 days! I'm terrified and excited! Terrified I won't have enough money and excited because it's my first legit adult vacation EVER. emoticon

    I had to giggle about the running thing- I'm the same. When I do run it's like "ok, I ran, but I'm sure people could have passed me several times over." But it's all about baby steps and getting out there and just doing it.
    I can imagine how tough it is to squeeze in exercise and tracking with your schedule- yikes! You can do i though!
