Last night I was out walking one of my dogs & thought I'd do just a little jogging as an ankle strengthener for a weak ankle I have. Well, I ended up jogging almost the entire walkies loop, about .7 of a mile. I've never, ever been able to run much before, even as winter training for bicycle racing when I was in my 20's or even as a kid. I would get a stitch in the side within 20 feet and it would just feel weird and awkward. When I tried a few months ago my shin muscles were just screamin'. And, today, no soreness. I'm hoping I can work up to real sprints.
I was so excited, I just had to share!
