My fast walked almost half-marathon...over 10 miles today!

I did something that I have never done in the 14 years at my job-I walked to and from work today
. I'd finished Hip Hop Abs and was readying myself for the bus and subway ride into town when I impulsively decided to just walk to work. It is about 2 miles roughly one way and I knew from walks with my kids that I could probably do it in a little less than an hour-but I was surprised and pleased that it took me 34 minutes to--geek moment! And after work I walked a bit more just enjoying the beautiful day but then headed home -and I had walked over 8 miles! Soooooo....curious to see if I could make it 10 I did Zumba and running around our house and finished the day over 10 and a quarter miles!
When I think that that was almost a half marathon...that made me smile even more. Maybe one day in the not to distant future I can do one-just maybe! But for now I am happy that I was able to do this--a long way from the sedentary woman I was.
