So I decided it is time to get in shape, as spring and summer will be here in no time, and I have been baking up a storm! One thing I used to do when I was younger, was I would jog along the canal through the city with my dog. I don’t have a dog these days, but I figure what the heck, I should start working up to running again. If you know me, you know I won’t do anything without my accessories so I bought one of these iFitness belts to hold my water and my other stuff while I walk, and eventually run. Nothing is worse as a runner, than having to worry about all your stuff while you are trying to jog.
I want to incorporate weight lifting into the routine eventually, but I don’t think I am quite there yet. I figure if I start with my goal being to walk 3 miles, then run 1 mile, then 2 etc, I will be a full blown runner again in no time. I was checking out the couch to 5k app, but honestly it seems like it progresses a little bit slower than I would like to, so I am just going to kind of do my own program of tapering up from walking to jogging.
I’m also a little concerned about my knees, so I will be upping my dosage of glucosimine that I take daily, because I know how much it can help when I am doing something strenuous. I figure with a good diet, and getting out on the road 4 or 5 days a week, I will be over this holiday puffiness in no time. Are any of you doing anything to get in shape for spring? I know the weather is still cold and nasty in places, but are you doing anything indoors to get over that holiday pudge? Let us know!
