And finally, she gets out there...

Yes, finally, this week I've done two nice jogs out there. Yipee! Just simple ones over my usual 4 km route. I've been out of it long enough that a 1 min jog then 1 min walk is good exercise! But I'll keep at it and get myself back up to the 10 mins run and 1 min walk. I find since I've been off the Zyprexa that the breathing is easier! Obviously it affected my breathing rate slightly and made my pulse race more. Ahhh, I love running. It's been good temps. too with not too cold, not too warm and slushy, but just nice, dry roads with some dry pavement and cruncy icy stuff on the sides. Good for the grip! Wish me luck. I love hearing inspiring comments. :)

Finally, some good news

Yes, I'm able to walk again, properly! So, am going to go to the gym and walk on the treadmill. Boring but necessary. With the headphones on shouldn't be too bad, I hope. I got my application for the National Capital Race Weekend yesterday. So, will fill that out for the 10 km race in late May. I know that I can train for that distance between now and then. It'd feel good to do that! I'm so looking forward to getting out there and getting some fresh air in my lungs for a nice walk outside too.

It's unfortunate that a lot of the winter has passed by with little to no exercise but....that's life right? Have to make the best of it, while we can.
