i went on a walk last night and thought it would be fun to jog for the last 1/2.
it felt like i walked/ran for about 5 miles, but in reality i think it was only a mile or so
it's the effort that counts though, right?
here are a few thoughts that were running through my head as i was jogging:
when i started: "wow, this isn't so bad..."
about 30 seconds into the jog: "wait...*panting*...when did my legs turn into lead?"
after 2 minutes and feeling like i was going to fall over: "okay...*panting*... run to that sign....*panting*...."
upon arriving at the sign: "okay....*gasping for breath* now run to that mail box on the other side of the street..."
after tripping on the curb to get to the mail box, in front of cute man, while my arms flailed in front of me in case i hit the ground: "oh please tell me he didn't see that...*heavy breathing*...wait, I think I hear him laughing...run faster...."
at that point, i turned the corner just in time to save my pride and went back to walking swiftly.
i thought i'd never catch my breath
i figure it was a good first attempt at getting back into jog mode
