Need to crank it up a notch
I'm tired of taking it slow, being careful and not injuring myself.
That, boys and girls, is an example of what they mean when they use the phrase 'Famous Last Words.' It's just asking for an injury.
Okay, I'm not tired of non-injury. But I do want to see if I can take things a little farther.
This week, I've switched over to jogging for mileage. I want to work on increasing the distance I can go, even if it's at a slow pace. Then when I've gotten the leg tendons used to that, I'll start adding in the occasional sprint.
Probably should've put up a picture of a tortoise instead of a puppy.
Exercise du jour: Jogged 2.5 miles
Done! My poor achin' stomach didn't really appreciate the exercise, but the legs didn't seem to mind too much. I do love the virtuous feeling you get when you do your exercise in the a.m. instead of last thing at night!
