So last week was my first week of fitness. It went well I thought, I went walking/jogging 3 evenings after work. I’m easing myself into it slowly to start with as I figure that’s probably the best thing for someone who normally doesn’t exercise. I tried to keep myself from getting bored by getting someone to go with me each night, and also by going to 3 different locations. I walked along The Lough (basically a man-made lake with lots of wildlife), along the banks of our city’s river, the River Lee, and also a nature walk out in Blarney. The weather was nice on 2 of the nights, but the third was wet and windy. I persevered however, yay me.
Here’s a few snaps I took on my phone last week:

I’m learning more about exercise, things like warming up and stretching, but I would love to hear any more advice from anyone!? I think I’ll start using a pedometer to check and see how many steps I take during my regular days and during my walks.
