I jogged 5km this morning. Well, it was 5.18 actually, and since I felt every step, I'm going to claim it.
After last year's failed efforts, I was afraid to try jogging again, but I realize now that I just tried too soon after my surgery. A few weeks ago, it occurred to me that I am almost 18 months post surgery; I feel great, and there was no reason not to try again.
So, I jogged a km. (Last year, I could barely go a block). Then I did a km and a half. The next time was 3km, then 4.5 km and now 5(.18)km.
I am slow. But, as the saying goes: Slow is better than Did Not Finish, which trumps Did Not Start.
5km has always been the big goal for me. Now that I reached that, I'll work on the speed, and then maybe up the distance to 8km.
