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.


  1. Congratulations! I want to start walking the Tiny Ten as soon as it cools down later this week.

  2. YEAH!!!! It took me weeks to get up to jogging 5km. I too am quite slow. Like you, I figure slow is still better than sitting on the couch! Good Job and keep it up!
