I jogged seven days!

Last week I began jogging. I run every day.
In this 7 days jogging, I got these four.

(1)Beautiful views
I began jogging because I found a site what introduced some jogging course near my apartment.
The first day was a beautiful day.
Jogging, first day

My camera is not so small and hard to bring with. But I see lots of beautiful scenes and want to show them to my boyfriend and you all, so I give up bringing drink with me and bring only my camera and cell phone (* v *)!!!!
Jogging, second day
This is a picture of the second day. I'm happy because I can run variety of courses by Yokohama Bay.

Jogging, sixth day
I also enjoy colored leaves too.

Jogging, seventh day
Today I could run 40 minutes without a break(At the first day I could run only 3-5 minutes), it's my best for these 7 days. I ran (and walk) for an hour or more every day.

(2)I met persons and cute animals
In these seven days, I exchanged greetings with some joggers. I greeted as if I'm not a beginner(* v *).
And also, I met some cute animals.
Jogging, first day
Jogging, first day
In the morning, I could meet some cats.
Jogging, second day
And lots of bird.
Jogging, second day
I also met Bo-chan in a fine day.

(3)Some events
In a week, I met two events.
The one is a training of the police.
Jogging, third day
I've never seen such an event and some people enjoyed seeing it. They supposed shooting incident, terrorist bombs or demonstrators and trained how to deal with them.
Jogging, fifth day
And in other day, there is an open day of Japan Coast Guard and I could see the inside of this ship. So this day I could run only 30 minutes totally...

(4)Health
I didn't lose my weight yet, but my waist lose 2cm in this week. And also, I can sleep quite well(maybe too much).
I began running and exercise in my room 5 months before, and my body slimmed down a little. But I couldn't loose my weight at all. So I began this jogging. I hope I could continue it for long for my health.

I can enjoy jogging because of the place where I run. Every day, before I go for a jogging I check where I want to run. I'm happy to live here (* v *)!!!!
But there is a problem also. Because of the jogging, I'm sleepy every day and I cannot sew a lot these days... Maybe after two or three weeks I get used to it and I can sew more...

As you begin exercising, you gain muscle and lose fat - as the muscle weighs more than fat, many people don't lose weight, but rather, lose inches from their body. You're on the right track! :) I'm impressed you can run so far after only one week.

I really enjoy reading your posts to see a small piece of life in Japan, and your beautiful handiwork. Thank you for sharing!

Good job with your running! That is surely the softest dog I've ever seen. And the cat that's about to plop over into the water is funny!

Hello Mai:
I'm glad you are enjoying running.

Please, for your health and for your knees, do NOT run for 7 days in a row. You must REST for 1 day every week. :)

If you want to learn more about running, Nike has good information

Hi Mai! I just started exercising too! Thanks for sharing your work and pictures online - you're always an inspiration, and now it's fun to think that healthy things are beginning to happen in Japan, just like here. Good job!
