Well friends, I did it. I got over my emotional attachment to the oh-so-comfy couch and blankets with a soda and popcorn in hand and decided it was time to do something about my motivation. I had class this morning and all I could think about was going for a jog!
So, I got home at 1:00pm ran inside, changed into my black yoga pants and my aggie shirt (I feel it gives me some team support! haha) and my tennis shoes. Found my iPod, made a workout playlist, grabbed the dog, set up my running tracker on my phone, and hit the concrete! Literally, I hit the concrete, I tripped over Daisi’s stupid leash and did a semi-fall. For those of you not in my area, I’m in Houston, Texas. It’s 80 degrees outside full sunshine and because it’s Texas, it’s a little humid but not too bad. A little windy too.
I start out walking so the dog can pee and not slow me down. Then I started jogging.. ok ok more like a slow trot. The dog was going faster than me, so I figured I needed to speed it up a little haha! Well, the cloud left that was giving me some nice shade, and then I felt like I was standing on black asphalt in the middle of the desert. GAH! It was HOT! Sweating like a
pig lady. I kept telling myself- “Make it to the stop sign, make it to that stick, JUST MAKE IT TO SOMETHING!”
I ended up jogging half the trip and walking half. I figure that’s better than nothing. I felt like I had been out there for 30 minutes and gone at least a mile. Yeah well, that’s when I looked at my running tracker on my phone. I went ONLY .84 miles and it took me 14 minutes and 20 seconds. I was out there 15 minutes and ONLY went .84 miles!!! You have got to be kidding me.
I came in, turned the fan on full blast and fell flat on the floor.. so did the dog.
I have a long way to go… 😦 phooey. But, I’ve got to start somewhere!
p.s. I’m still on the floor……………
