One Tree At A Time

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

I am feeling rather refreshed this morning, I started a new 6 week 3 hour a night aerobic class through the college I go to, and after last nights run/jog I'm feeling more energetic then ever. I also learned something rather powerful as well. My teacher said "start goals on where you are now, and not where you wish you were." He said if you could only run to the first tree that's fine. Just build on from there. He said that's why so many people make unachievable goals, there goals are just too big, so they fall short and throw in the towel.

So before our walk last night, I thought about what he said. He said you can either: walk, jog, run, or combine. For a tougher workout I told myself, lets run and jog. I ended up running 5 minutes, jogging 10, and walking 5. I am so proud of myself. Maybe by the end of this 6 weeks I can run/jog 20. I think it's possible.
