I'm getting stronger

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

I live in a hilly region...7 miles from town...1/2 mile from the country club. My house sits waaaaay up on a hill....among the trees.

And my next door neighbors have cows. emoticon

So walking around here is a real workout, especially since I have been a couch potato for the majority of 12 years.

When I started my walking routine, it was to the end of the road and back, which amounts to 1 mile. I had to stop several times along the way and huff and puff until I got my breath back and my legs stopped hurting enough to keep walking.

That was two weeks ago.

Yesterday I walked two miles without stopping even once. emoticon

I'm getting stronger! emoticon emoticon

    As the saying goes "You've come a long way Baby!" Congrats on your great accomplishment. Of course I'm a lot older but it has taken me 2 months (not weeks) to finally walk 2 1/2 miles today on my way to a 5K two weeks from now.
