Just Starting Out - Journey to Fitness


Recommended Posts

Just stumbled on this the other day. I'm supremely unfit, and thought there was no way I could jog for anywhere near a minute without passing out or spontaneously combusting. I decided to give it a go anyway, because I'll be 41 next Tuesday, and if I don't do something soon, it won't be long before I reached the point that I couldn't even walk around after my 15 month old daughter.

Headed out Monday morning for the first time, and somehow I got through it. I tried to go as slow as I could while still continuing to move. My breathing was fine, but I had to stop for a minute 2 or 3 times to rest because my calves and shins were so sore. I got the workout completed in the end though.

Onwards and upwards from here.


Went out and got professionally fitted for some road running shoes yesterday; so hopefully that and stretching more will help the calf and shin issue.
