Self trained runner !!

No one teaches us to walk. We have packages in our genetic setup which enabled us to walk. As a kid we observed our parents and relatives and friends all around us walking and we probably asked ourselves "Why shouldn't I do the same myself ?".  And then we walked.
Walking when we are adults requires hardly any effort. It seems effortless like breathing. It comes natural. But because of our sedentary lifestyle we spend life sitting most of the time. We also overeat and eat wrong food. We put on weight and fat. Then walking for a longer time becomes a problem.
Jogging is different from walking. Almost all the body organs are stable in walking. Everything works effortlessly in walking. However jogging can be said to be a state where except breathing every other mechanism in our body requires effort. Breathing is the stable point in jogging. For people who want to jog and are habitual walkers, need to increase the speed of legs and raise them alternately. But they have to keep the breathing under voluntary control. You are jogging if your speed is below 6 miles per hour speed.
Running is a state where every activity in your body during running state requires effort. Even breathing. All the activities need effort at that particular time every time you run. It is a different feeling from jogging. I am gradually increasing the duration of my running. I plan to become a good runner in a month's time. By January end.
Later I shall improve my timing and duration and by God's will I shall participate in marathon in November 2015 and finish it as a runner. I am sure and confident and getting prepared for it.
