17 min/mile - fastest walk yet!

Tuesday, October 05, 2010

Since getting back on the SparkWagon, I've taken up walking as my primary exercise.
I use the route tracker, and the stopwatch function on my iPhone to determine how I'm doing.

Since Arianrose is offsite today, I had to take my walk alone. To keep from dallying in my own thoughts, I decided to push myself to see just how fast I could walk it.

And the verdict is in the title. 17 min/mile. I'm sure there's a lot of folks out there who can walk faster, and I don't think I could have kept that pace up for a whole lot longer than I did, but it felt good, and it feels good to be sitting down now that I've done it.

Go me!

    I think that is awesome! I know what work that takes too; right now I am in the 21-24 minute per mile range.

    Of course, that's without me and my walking-time-determined-by-shoe-cho
    ice issues.

    And I'm *still* not willing to bring awful white tennis shoes to work.
