5k My Way -- Day 12 -- On my own for the first time

Friday, February 22, 2013

Temp: 28 and not too breezy, Distance 0.7 miles, Time 13:13 minutes

I've mentioned what a blessing it is to have J walk with me in the mornings. He called me last night to say he wouldn't be joining me today. I expected the call. He is dedicating a granddaughter on Sunday, and left to be with family. Have a great weekend J.

Of course, all the discipline built around being ready when he arrived went straight out the window. I woke up 45 minutes later than usual and had to rush horribly for the morning. Still, it paid off. Got my walk in and hopped in the car to go to work. I also caught the beginning glimpes of a fabulous sunrise. Didn't really appreciate the neighbor who was frying bacon that could be smelled for blocks, though.

Ready for the weekend. As much as I enjoyed my big push last Saturday, my knees have really been complaining, so I think this weekend, I'll be walking less and looking for more indoor and less knee-intensive ways to keep moving.

    It's great that you "got er done" without your partner, it's no small accomplishment. On a personal note, we purchased a recumbent exercise bike which allows DW and I to get in our fitness minutes on those days when the knees, back or bad weather are giving us trouble. Don't know if this is a possibility for you, but it does off-load the knees a bit.

    Congrats on doing the walk alone. I know it is so much harder to do alone but you did it! YEAH!
