I feel a little overwhelmed because the server is down on the part of campus where I'm residing so I can't blog as often as I would like. However, I will do my best to keep you informed of some events in my life.
Yesterday was Day 1 of Week 5 of my jogging plan. By the time we were done with our workshop, everyone appeared pooped and I didn't have anyone to jog with and the gym was really isolated, so I improvised. I popped in the DVD "Hitch" in my laptop and started Day 1 in my room! I walked briskly (in place) for 5 minutes and then I alternated between jogging 5 minutes and walking 3 minutes (again, in place). It may not be the best of choices, but it worked and I could still feel the pull in my leg muscles.
The good thing about doing Day 1 in place was that I could focus on my form a little more. I made a conscious effort to straighten my back and "walk on those eggshells", as my aunt would say. I think when I actually go out, I will be a little more diligent about jogging correctly.
Western Carolina is across the way and I hope to be able to go out on their track. It's been quite some time since I've been on a track and I love that cushiony feel of the track against your feet. So springy! Ahhhhh.....
