Cardio Streak Day 344
20 minute walk
I'm still out in the country and I'm going to adhere to my boring cardio for the next several days. If you read the blog yesterday, you know that my legs are stiff (I admit I don't like stretching as much as I need) and I've decided in order to continue to the streak, I'm going to do a cardio walk for twenty minutes per day. I'll continue that for the next several days to a week until my legs quit being sore.
I haven't injured them, just over-used them I think. Some of you will argue that overuse "is" an injury and you may be right. However, walking only mildly bothers me so I'll continue that and try to up my stretching routine.
Today I waited till about 5pm and headed out. It's almost 80F but not objectionable. I saw a friend of mine down the street and he was cutting up a large tree with a chain saw. Ugghhhh... looks too much like work so we waved and I kept going. And besides, he had a helper so it's not like he was doing this alone! I'm sure I'll catch up with him later. And double-besides, I've got a reception to attend about 7pm so I've got to get dressed up (heck, I may even take a shower first, haha).
I'm fighting with computers this weekend so I'm not doing much on Spark. Maybe by the time I get back to civilization, I'll have these whipped into shape and running like olympic sprinters!
