I just jogged 7 kilometres

Postby Julie » Tue Apr 26, 2005 11:24 am

Wow, this morning I jogged for 1 hour and covered about 7 kilometres. I did jog really slowly, but a few months ago I couldn't have jogged 1 kilometre without stopping!

For those interested, the keys for me have been to build up slowly and really take my time. I jog very slowly and am never really gasping for air like a lot of people that run past me seem to be doing.

My goal over the next month or so is to increase my jogs to about 10 kilometres (wow, 10 kilometres!!!).

As well as feeling much fitter, I'm starting to notice that my hips and waist are getting slimmer and the muscles underneath a little harder. It feels great!

I'll let you all know how I progress. :D

Today I covered 9 kilometres and only stopped once (for a pee!).

Again I jogged very slowly and got sick of people passing me but I kept going.

Apart from a little soreness in my legs it was actually ok.

Next week I plan to cover 9.5k's and the week after 10! :D

Walking around tassie would be great!

I find the more I exercise, the better I get at it and the easier it is to motivate myself. Sometimes it can get boring, but it helps changing the scenery every now and again.

Walking in tassie would be lovely, you must have some very scenic paths close by. When you've got great things to look at (like nature and stuff) it doesn't really seem like exercise.

Please do keep us posted, I find it motivating hearing about other peoples great progress. Starting by walking around the block is perfect and I look forward to hearing about you walking your first 5K! Go girl!

I've had a bad exercise week too!

This week's been a shocker for me exercise wise too.

I'm glad to say that I haven't had a funeral to go to, but my routine has just gotten out of wack.

But today is a new day and I'm off for a walk and I might even break out into a slow jog!

Yup your right we do have senic walks here. My goal at the moment is to walk about two km from where i live and walk along the river . We actually live where the Spirit Of Tasmania docks in .At the moment it looks a long way as it is down hill on the way and up on the way back but ill get there . It all counts even the little baby steps

It sure does all count. Even though uphills can be hard, they do help you burn more calories and give you something to look forward to - the downhills! They help tone the legs and but muscles too, and who in their right mind doesn't want a tighter but?!

After a shocking week for exercise (I hardly did any) I've just gotten back from a bike ride and I felt like staying out all day!

It's about 20 degrees outside (Melbourne), the wind is but a gentle breeze, everybody is out walking and enjoying the sunshine, heaven!

I rode nice and easy, didn't push myself hard, which made it perfect for thinking. Sometimes I do my best thinking while riding, it must be all the oxygen getting to the brain!

If only we felt like this everyday!

I am very lucky to live in Qld even in winter we have beautiful warm days to go walking/riding/rollerblading etc.

I joined my local gym in January and it was the best thing I have ever done. I go 5 times a week and love the way it makes me feel afterwards.

I found only walking wasn't moving any weight.

But good on you Julie for jogging that far.
