Week Two of Training

OK - so I finished Training Week One successfully on Thursday. Saturday, it was time to tackle week two. If you are an accomplished runner, this will sound so wimpy, but I have to start somewhere. Three times during this week, I am to start my brisk walk for 5 minutes, then alternate jogging for 90 seconds and walking for 2 minutes for 20 minutes. I actually decreased my total time by 2 1/2 minutes over the prior week, so I say that is progress.

I've been walking 2 miles for awhile now and can't believe how much more of a workout it is just jogging a few seconds intermittently. At one point yesterday, I thought that maybe I had bitten off more than I could chew and then thought about The Little Engine That Could. I pushed right through saying to myself, "I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!"

OK, gramster. I can help you! I will drive my vehicle(we can pretend it is the Hartselle Olympics)beside you to be there if you fall or trip(I know you won't faint or fall of your own accord)....then I can get help for you if that happens. Always want to be of service to my energetic siestas!
