Foam roll upper and lower
14 minutes jog/walk program
I have wanted to start running again. I have not run on a regular basis in over two decades. I knew I could not just enter into running or jogging or whatever from nowhere. So I planned to start a run/walk program, but I have been putting it off for a while. Anyway, I saw Jim's letter to himself and I was inspired. It was just the kick in the a$$ I needed.
So after some foam rolling and a light stretch I hit the pavement. I just walkded to the first telephone poll on my road and then jogged to the next. I repeated this until I got to the end of the road and came back. I don't know how far I went and I am not going to measure it. I did it 14 minutes and my heart rate finished at 136. So I have numbers to improve upon. I'll eventually lengthen the trip as I get better at it. I promised myslef I would add it to my conditioning at least one time per week if not more.
My shins took some good impact and my legs definitely tightened up quickly. The one thing is, I felt very accomplished when I finished. I know it's no big deal, but it was a first step into a something new. I sure liked it a lot more than the treadmill or airdyne.

I will never-ever video my running,
