Yogging to the Rescue!

I’m always amazed at how people change and grow throughout their lives. Time has people doing things that they never think that they would do. For instance, I never thought that I would try and enjoy jogging or any type of running at all. Because anyone who knows me knows that I have hated jogging for as long as I can remember. In middle and high school we were subjected to a twice yearly mile and a half test, which was graded via time. One time I was 5 seconds away from an F! My body and teeth would literally vibrate after those mile and a halves, which I always thought was a bad sign. I should point out that ironically, they also wanted me to be in track because I happened to be very good at sprinting, just very bad at long distance (too many high-twitch, too few low twitch muscles). I refused knowing the endurance training would probably kill me.

So I’ve coasted along the years never really having to worry about my weight until this year, this Summer in particular. I had a “come to Jesus” moment when not a single pair of my pants would fit me! The horror level was very high for someone who’s never had to worry about her waistline! This is when I decided that I should attempt to get into yogging, as I call it. After realizing I was not really exercising except my 2 mile walk to work to and from my job in the nether regions of the city, as that had been exhausting at the beginning because I had such poor endurance level training in the past, I decided it was time to take my endurance/cardio training to the next level!

As I recounted to my friends, I could not find my fanny pack in my apartment, so I had to research how I was going to carry my keys/etc around. My friends assured me it was a grace from the fashion gods that I could not find my old fanny pack and that instead I searched out other exercise accoutrement to go with my newfound yogging resolution!

After much research I decided on the following items, to make my yogging experience the best it could possibly be: 1. TuneBand for the iphone 2. Amphipod waistband clip for keys/money 3. EARBUDi to make sure those earbuds actually stay on while running. I of course, would pair all of this with sunglasses almost as large as my head, and a hat, so as to minimize potential sun damage. So much for being a fashion icon! I actually thought of adding a sweatband to my head and wrist to go whole hog with the 70’s experience but decided against it at the last minute.

While I can’t fit into all of my pants, I have to say that after a month or attempting my version of interval training yogging once a week, I can now at least fit into several pairs of them, which is a start and enough to keep me attempting to yog away!
