Winsten and I broke our record this morning. We did 5.25 miles walking in 48 minutes!!
It is a misty, cool morning, just right for walking.
We started out at a good clip, and after a while, I checked to see how we were doing. Yikes! We had already logged in 2 miles.
That surprised me, and motivated me to keep going.
I thought I was going for mile 3 when I looked again, and geesh! I was on mile 4 already!!
chugga chugga choo choo!!
Not being ready to stop, and full of adrenaline, we go on to mile 5, then on to 5.25.
I checked our time. NO WAY!!! 47:55 minutes.
Double Check the time!! Sure enough, rounded up to 48 minutes!
Actually I am walking again with more gusto since I gained 3+ pounds while my back was giving me grief. I have some extra tonnage to walk off, and am bound and determined to get back below 180 where I was several weeks ago.
And it ain't going to go away by itself, no matter how much I wish it would.
Like Creedence says "Gotta MOVE!"
Winsten and I are very proud of our achievement.
Did I tell you that our time INCLUDED stopping by for a very brief chat with a neighbor, all the while walking in place to keep my heart rhythm up? Yep.
This Spark Thing is truly miraculous and magical. It turned a couch potato blimp into a trimmed down fast walker!
Bring on the 5K!!!
Chugga chugga choo choo!
