After a summer dedicated to cycling, I’m recently getting back into jogging. I have to say I’m not exactly enjoying it. Before the summer I was running at least once a week maybe more. I gave it up to focus on the many cycling events that I participated in. But with the weather changing and the urge to do a triathlon, it’s something I have to resume.
I spent a little time on the treadmill and gotten a few miles in outdoors. Both are equally painful. Like cycling, so many are passionate about running, but I’m having a hard time seeing how they get there right now.
What I find fascinating is my aerobic capacity. My energy level is good out there, but my body is hurting. The other night I was on an hour jog, and as I approached the end I felt good, like I wanted more exercise. But my legs were ready to fall off. The next day the were sore, especially my ankles.
And lets talk about speed. I’m slow, really slow.
I know the more I continue to run the more my body will adapt, but I have to admit getting there is no fun at all. I plan to get in at least one run per week and see how I progress.
