I’m really excited about getting back into jogging again. At about this time last year, I started training for a 5k that I completed in October. My goal at that time was to finish in under 45 minutes, and I believe I came in at about 42 minutes. That was the last time I jogged until last week.
I was finally inspired to start using our jogging stroller for jogging. After taking 3-4 mile walks pretty regularly, I decided to start running for about half of that distance. It’s been working really well, and I’ve been loving it! Unfortunately, my favorite pair of running shoes finally got too worn out and starting rubbing on my heel too much. I got a small blister on my heel and threw that pair out. Then I wore my second-favorite pair, which I was using indoors on our elliptical, but those gave me massive blisters yesterday, too! When I took them off, I realized that they, too, were very worn.
Now I have a HUGE blister on each of my heels. Eeek. I’m headed to a running store today, upon the suggestion of some fellow blogging lovelies, and am hoping to find shoes that will work very well with my stride.
I’m starting to think that my 30 Before 30 goal of running a 10K is very attainable!
