Managed to get out jogging [Nov. 11th, 2009|02:07 pm]
I've found that I can jog for 22 minutes, in the starting-to-get-cold rain, and with my muscles aching in interesting locations.

I may or may not have mentioned this, but with my new exercises, where I'm working my core muscles, and my legs and hips in new ways, I've noticed that my jogging has changed. Different muscles are engaging, not because I'm trying to run differently, but merely because I am. I think this means I'm learning to engage my hips and legs properly, that I'm strengthening the right muscles to get them all working the way they were meant to. And I'm a lot more active - I feel what's going on in my legs more than I used to.

I was really glad to find that I could still do 22 minutes - it's been a few weeks since I've been jogging more than once a week, and I've been skipping my normal exercise routine from time to time, because life has gotten busy.

And, with a busy life, well, the only time I think to update LJ is when I have a minor exercise victory to report :-).

Hooray!!! That is excellent news, on many levels. I will NOT bore you with the discussion we had today in class about the various adaptations to endurance training that bodies tend to enjoy. But you are living it!

You are inspiring me to get back on the exercise track. :)
