Exercise log

Time I ran for: 10 minutes
Time of day I ran: Midday
How I felt: Couldn't actually jog for 5 minutes without stopping. Kept getting out of breath and had to walk every so often. Ditto coming back.
Weather during the run: Hot and sunny.

First run of the training programme. I'm following the scheme suggested on the Serpentine Running Club's web site, ie the Couch potato to distance runner plan.

I have no intention of running great distances. Even when I was at school, I was a sprinter and hurdler not a distance runner and had great difficulty running 1 mile for a Girl Guide badge. But after the lack of fitness I showed when I went walking with G in the hills behind Boulder on the US trip and the expansion of my waistline over the winter, I need to get back into a proper exercise routine. Some days it's difficult to fit in an hour's walk, but a short run will take less time and also provide variation.

We will see how long this burst of enthusiasm lasts. *g*
