So against common wisdom/odd stares, I have started jogging. My little BodyMedia FIT tells me that my bicycling isn't quite giving me the bang for the buck that I wanted (METS value is the same as walking...WTF?) and running almost DOUBLES the calorie burn.
So I have started jogging. Mostly what I would call "interval running" (run half a block, walk half, run half), and today was the first day to do it around the neighborhood. Have to admit it isn't too bad to do, especially since I can nail out 2k steps in about 15 minutes and get a good 10 minutes of "vigourous" workout under the belt. Without driving to the Y and back. That's even better. :-)
