First Slow Jog in Years
June 21, 2020
I’m finally up to speed to actually start my slow jogging.
I had only been walking until now. Just making sure I was fit enough and ready.
Turns out I am, even though I do take breaks and sometimes walk.
A good start and I hope to keep this up on a daily slow jog/walk/run for the rest of my life! Huzzah!
