Day 4 of 10 min/day

Saturday, March 09, 2013

It's a gloomy day here in Western Iowa, very cloudy. It rained overnight, which is good, we need the rain. The temps aren't so bad. I was able to wear a sweatshirt on my walk, with my winter hat. My second oldest, Patrick, went with me. We walked 1.5 miles in 31.5 minutes. I really enjoyed talking with him the whole way. He's a great kid, but being the second child, doesn't always get the attention he needs.

I had to slow down my walk quite a bit. Last night I worked a short shift and I noticed my achilles tendons were sore. I walked at a 17.5 minute/mile pace yesterday. Today I slowed down to a 21 minute/mile pace.

I ate much better yesterday and didn't over indulge. I can't wait until my body lets go of the extra bloat from all that pizza the other day, and the extra weight from taking prednisone.

I just looked at my fitness tracker. I finally have put on some miles this week. My total miles: 6.6 miles in four days. That's a pretty good start!
