Tonight (early am on the 30th for those non night owl folks) I decided to take my second walk of the night off. My legs were really tired on the first one and I was really slow and barely got in 3000 steps. So I am giving my legs a rest until 7am when I am meeting up with a fellow sparker to go mall walking. Hopefully my legs will treat me a little better. I know that I have been pushing them a little hard but it seemed to be the only way to get myself into the habit of doing the walking. Now that it has become a habit I think I can lay off when my legs are too tired and not feel so guilty. Things are going really well other than the tired legs although at work each night (except tonight) I have been putting in 10,000-12,000 steps I didn't really think that was a lot until the other coach that I coach track with was impressed with walking that many steps in one night. She is in really good shape so I thought that was an awesome compliment. Hopefully this reduction in my normal routine will give my legs enough rest so that they come back strong for the end of the week and the beginning of the new week.
