So Sunday I needed a recovery day after snowboarding and running on Saturday. The two littles were too sick to go into the church nursery so the DW asked me to take them on the bike trail. I bundled them up and walked 6 miles at a 15 min pace (90 min), SP estimated calorie burn: 570 cal.
Then, on Monday, I went out for a mid-distance run in the late afternoon. I ran 8.5 miles in 70 min, at an 8:10 pace and SP estimated calorie burn: 1150 cal, or over twice as many as I used walking for 1.5 hours. Which I found interesting.
I love walking and the many benefits of walking, but sometimes you need to get out and run!
It looks like our forecasted 8-10 inches of snow is only 2-3 inches. Hopefully I will be back out on the roads again by Thursday! Spark on everyone!
