It was a beautiful day yesterday, warm and sunny and a nice breeze, so when my youngest Hobbit (Em) suggested and walk/jog down the lane, I set myself a challenge to see if I could jog all the 1/4 mile down our lane to the road, without stopping.
Jogging on the stony lane was much different than jogging on the treadmill. It is more difficult, you use more muscles and EVERYTHING painfully bounces up and down. It wasn’t a pretty sight..
But there is one thing I have learned from my experience so far this time around, to succeed you really cannot worry what you look like or what other people may think of you.
Bearing that in mind, I did my very first public jog (although my lane is so private there was only a slim chance we’d bump into anyone!) and YES I managed the whole 1/4 of a mile without stopping. I honestly surprised myself!
