Cramps Are Good

     So I went for jog yesterday. This was the first time I have gone jogging since I quit smoking. Now when I smoked and I got a wild hair up my butt  I would try and go for a run. It usually ended with me running about a block and a half and then having to stop and spend 5 minutes trying to get a breath. I would spend the rest of the time walking, except when cars drove by or someone was out in their yard, then I would resume a jogging ( like I was some kind of athlete LOL). After the car passed or I was out of eyesight of the person watching I would stop, catch my breath and continue walking. Once I got back home I would immediately throw myself into a lawn chair and light up a smoke.
     Well this jog yesterday was the first time I didn't get winded. I actually ran a mile with out stopping. As a matter of fact I did a 50 yard sprint, which was where I got a cramp. What was really funny, I couldn't figure out why my side hurt so bad. This was due to the fact that this was the first time I had a cramp from exercise since I was 10 years old. I mean honestly this was a rare event for me. So yeah, I was pretty damn proud of that cramp. Go me!

  1. Can totally relate too how foreign a cramp is when you're a smoker or are sedentary. Go you indeed!
