Jogging Information

Postby KimE » Fri Jan 05, 2007 7:02 pm

This is a continuation of a discussion started in the exercise diary thread...

Thanks Emma, Bluebox and Sarah great to have your input. I really find I enjoy jogging and it is one of the few exercises I almost crave which is wierd. I believe I have the cardio fitness to do a lot more than I am it's just getting the body used to it. I remember the first time I tried to jog like Sarah I couldn't even do one lap and I had been using the cross trainer regularly at this stage so I thought no problem this should be a cinch...yet somehow it is a very different kind of exercise even though the cross trainer is a full on cardio workout, it doesn't really prepare you for jogging like I thought it would.

Ooh yeah, Jogging is something different alright! I thought the same, because I'm good on the bike, cross trainer and rower, I thought I'd have no issues with jogging! But it really is a shock to the system!! I actually started running in my Kickboxercise class where we do a circuit type thing including running laps of the room. That helped to improve my fitness sooo much! The first time I tried to jog on the treadmill I managed 20 mins at 8.5km! I was so proud :D

I had the WORST first experience with jogging though. During my fitness course I mentioned to a lady who I was doing the course with that I was curious about jogging. At this point I didn't do ANY cardio at the gym, just weights, cos I was at a really crappy gym. Anyway, this lady was like "Oh, I'll take you out!!! I love to jog". Anyway, she made me jog on the footpath around the block for 10 minutes without stopping. I was DYING, could not catch my breath and was spluttering and trying desperately to slow down and she kept yelling "NO!!!!" and dragging me along by my arm.
It was HORRIBLE!!! That put me off for months!!!

The best thing to do is to just DO IT YOUR WAY!!! If you can only jog for 30 seconds before you need to walk to calm your breathing down for a minute, do it that way!! Just try to jog again as soon as you catch your breath.

Just depends on the individual, Kate :) Those people you see running are probably serious runners and compete in events and constantly try to better their running times etc... Jogging is jogging as long as it's quicker than a power walk, really!

Hahaha Kate! Its the one problem I have with jogging, tho I do enjoy it. I put on the tightest damn sports bra that I have when I do it, such as today. I think the problem that we have when we start jogging is the fact that we are pounding our bodies more. The cross trainer is a fairly smooth motion and is quite different to the jogging. I havent jogged in about 8 months until today. I did enjoy it but could only manage short bursts. Which was fine because I was doing interval intensity anyway. I was nearly dead by the time I got to my final cool down but I did enjoy it. Thank gawd tomorrow is a rest day tho!!!

LOL yeah I have a super sports bra like Rochelle and I prefer to wear tight tops for exercise so that adds another layer.

You're right Em it is a whole different kettle of fish. That first experience sounds absolutely hideous. Poor thing...she probably thought she was being really motivating and helpful too.

I know this is going off the jogging topic, but I will comment on that in a minute.....but I am sick and tired of not being able to get a good sports bra!! There is no encouragement in that area for big people to have a bit of comfort while they are exercising!!! The only ones I have been able to find makes your boobs look like a speed hump and it doesn't restrict movement at all....just looks like an earthquake is rolling over your chest!! I would love for someone to invent a bra that has the supportive cups with the sports bra backing in big sizes.....I wrote to a bra company once about it and got the reply that "we dont' deal in that kind of market" What the..?

Ok rant is over........now to jogging

On the show "what is good for you" they were doing a segment on jogging and although it is harder on your joints than any other form of exercise it is also one of the best for you as they explained when you jog for 15 minutes it is the same as walking for 30 minutes and it is apparently a good all over cardio and fat burn workout!!! When I can run without applauding myself (some of you will know what I mean :wink: ) I will certainly be giving it a go!!!

Keep up the great work girls!!

Thanks for that info Ally!. I agree on the sports bra front they need to have them for all sizes.

Unfortunately my body is just not made to jog. I can be jogging for 5 min and fine on the cardio front, but my legs all cramp up and go spazomy no matter how much stretching and warm up I do. And there's the boob thing.

I think I'm just not built to be a jogger... but I could cycle all day.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
