Building Endurance & Consistency

I began a jogging program today and I hope that it is more than just a beginning. I hope that it is the beginning of a new phase in my life. Not only do I want to improve my physical well-being but I also want to improve my marathon mentality. I want to learn from my jogging regime skills that can crossover into other areas of life. Regular running requires discipline, endurance, and consistency - three qualities that I need in all areas of life.

At the beginning of this new phase in my life, I've already learned a couple of things.

1.) Start off slowly. Even if I walk a lot and jog in intervals, that's good to build my endurance. Beginning slowly also helps to not burn me out quickly.

2.) To remember that I can always do more than I think I can. If I tell myself that I'll jog for 50 feet, I can usually push it to a little more than that.

I've already noticed that jogging/walking can help me to improve my body, mind, and spirit. One step at a time I can do this.
