Blogilates and Running

Today for my workout I did a Blogilates video for the first time. It was a good full body workout. At times my legs hurt so bad I wanted to punch that perky little girl.

After my workout I did something gutsy. I ran. Not fast, or far, or even outside (I did some laps in my basement). It felt awesome. It made me wonder if it’s possible for someone my size to run regularly without blowing out a knee, or an ankle, or a brain artery. I did a Google search to find that, while there are conflicting views, it seems possible. It comes down mostly to going slow and building endurance. And shoes. Having a good pair of shoes that can take some of the impact my big butt’s gonna throw down is vital.

I liked the advice in an article from Live Strong, to build up from brisk walking. I think I’m going to give it a try.


  1. Good for you. I used to run all the time. Now I don't know if I could run if someone were chasing me.

  2. Thanks, Kathy. Lol, that's what I thought about myself too until I tried it. As long as I was only being chased a couple yards, I might be able to get away.
