A Healthier Me - Day 9

Today I wanted to try something different, but the weather wasn't cooperating. It was 109 f here today and I really wanted to jog/walk to my mailbox (1 mile away). But even at 6pm it was still 101 f. and it didn't look like I would be able too.. but around 7pm it cooled down to 98 and there was a slight breeze so I put on my workout clothes and headed out. I did job here and there the first mile but my legs and ankles were killing me (could be the horrible shoes I was wearing). So I got the mail and then walked the second mile home. Took about 45 minutes to job/walk the two miles.. but I feel good. I think I'm going to go out tomorrow and get me some proper running/walking shoes. I think I'm going to try and do that for my cardio instead of the elliptical.

Workout for Today:

2 mile jog/walk

I opted not to do any gym work since I did my upper yesterday today was suppose to be my lower, but that walk really worked my legs. So in a way I did that work out also.


  1. If you plan to incorporate walking/joggging into your routine, then by all means go out and invest in a decent pair of trainers! Your feet will tahnk you for it! :) And the 45 min jaunt out was great! Just remember to keep yourself hydrated in that hot dry weather!

    Go, go Kenny!! :)

  2. Thank you boobookitty for always encouraging me means a lot to me.

  3. I agree with boobookitty, your legs will definitely enjoy your jogs even more with a decent pair of shoes. Asics makes some comfortable running shoes.

    Keep going Kenny, your "Healthier Me" blogs are inspirational! :)

  4. I agree with Booboo good running shoes are a must. There are stores out there (I think there's one in the valley on ventura blvd) that will find shoes for your running/walking style. They do an analysis or something and then help find the right pair.
    I couldn't figure out exactly which store I was thinking of but check this place out. http://www.phidippidesencino.com/

  5. Props on being able to take that weather! It's always like that here in southern Georgia. Can't take it! A/C and fan when I move around. LOL.
