Exercise Goal Met!

Back in the beginning of April I decided that I needed an exercise goal for the quarter. I thought 75 hours was a good number. It actually was a very aggressive, with only about 1.5 days per week off to rest. I am happy that I have met this goal. I am going to allow for 2 days of rest for the next goal. Whether I take them or not will depend on the week, but I want to allow for them.

I mostly jogged for 2.4 miles last night. I jogged 1.5 miles but then had to stop because of a cramp. I jogged then some more after I felt a little better. I can't hardly believe this. I never jogged a mile before this year. Even in high school. I remember the gym teacher telling me, jog the straightaways and walk the corners. I had never even jogged one whole lap without slowing to walk.

I signed up for a 5k on Sunday morning. I figured I would use it to train for October's 5k. I'm also sure I will be walking part of it. I'm partly ready and might even find it easier with a whole bunch of other runners/joggers. It's with our fitness center and runs through a subdivision. My only goals are to finish and to not finish dead last. I for sure will let you all know how it goes.


  1. You're doing brilliantly - go for it, will be great to see you've finished your first 5k
    Well done

  2. You are doing great!!!!

    I got a little award for you at my blog.
