After a dismal showing at the first time trial of the year I decided to mix things up a bit and start jogging again. Haven’t jogged in a couple years. Here’s my log so far.
1.2 miles 19 minutes. 15.8
It’s late, long day at work, it’s dark. It’s kind of cool and windy. Put on my hiking shoes and leave my front door. Jog for a few minutes. Feet feel like they are being pounded by sledgehammers. Heart rate at 150. Must stop. Walk for a while. Jog some more. This sucks, why the hell am I doing this.
2.5 miles in 41 minutes. 16.4
It’s raining. I put on my jacket and drive to rail trail. God this sucks. I try to do a few minutes of jogging with a few minutes of walking. Mostly just walking at the end.
The next morning I wake up with extremely sore ankles and certain muscles in my leg that are stretched way out of shape. Ride a 60 mile killer gravel route and have the time of my life. Riding is 1000x times better than jogging.
1.9 miles in 30 minutes 15.8
Shauna and I go for a walk on rail trail. I jog, run into Elam on his bike. Am very jealous. He follows and talks to me while I try to talk back while sucking in liters of air. Running sucks. Feet still hurt, but new running shoes feel much better than hiking boots.
2.6 miles in 41 minutes 15.8
Well its 60 degrees, guess I’ll run again. Leave from house. Concrete sidewalks are hard. Jog the first mile straight thanks to a powerwalking girl up ahead that I wanted to try and catch. Mission accomplished. Time to walk.
