Holy crap, my whole body is achy. A good kind of achy, to be sure. I am plodding along at a slow pace, but I'm not expecting to go fast from the get-go, so.

I started running 2 minutes, walking 3 minutes, running 2 minutes, walking 3 minutes. I think I did pretty well, except near the end I felt like my face was going to explode from heat. lol. We went for about 40 minutes, just down the street, around the elementary school, and back down the same street to home. I ran about 8 times...that's 16-ish minutes total, and the rest of the time we walked quickly. My hip joints and right knee are kinda sore, but that happened when I started walking for 3 hours at a time.

I'ma do this routine again and again for about 1 or 2 weeks, then switch it up to run 4 minutes, walk 3 or 2 minutes. It depends on how I feel at the time, I guess. Hopefully I'll be able to drag my arse out of bed tomorrow to do another jaunt, but if not, Wednesday will be the next day I run. I don't think I'll be taking the dogs anymore, either.

And I gotta look up some foodstuffs to give me energy for running - it's not a good idea to run on an empty stomach. o.O Really a bad idea.

So my body isn't quite made for running yet, but it will be. Oh, it will be.

Funny side-note: my dog almost threw up from running so much today. I guess we're almost on the same page with the running. Except I only almost threw up because of the smell of the garbage drop-off spot, and not running too much. lol.

Warm-Up Stretches before you start running, to keep from spraining something. A pretty good idea.
