A storm is coming. And I had a goal to accomplish before the skies darkened and the rain comes pouring down.
I jogged 1.75 miles continuously for exactly 20 minutes and 21 seconds! Not bad since I haven't jogged this much since I was in my early 20s! (A good base time for a beginner is 12 minutes for one mile)
When I first started out on this trail, I barely lasted 10 minutes. I was always struggling to breathe and I was extremely tired- I thought it was a mental block that I had to overcome. So I would push myself a little further.
I finally had a check up with my doctor and they told me I was severely anemic- no wonder I was always tired! I felt so relieved that I wasn't a dweeb with exercising! All I needed was a few iron pills to feel better.
The iron pills have made such a big difference in my energy levels. I thought the amount of iron I was taking was sufficient, but apparently I needed more. I feel like a new person!
It feels so good to be working out and not feel like I have to take a two hour nap after wards!
