Day 78 - Upped my Walking

Monday, June 17, 2013

I discovered a route that when finished will equal 5 miles. I did it yesterday and today.

Walking around the entire circumference of my subdivision equals 1.1 miles. Each time I walk around the subdivision, I cut off one block until I am on the last block, which I walk it...then I am done! 5 full miles!

I know it's not scenic other than seeing the partially dried out lake during part of my walk but I am actually within a half mile from my home at any given time. I take multiple bathroom breaks.

It also takes me 2 full hours to walk 5 miles! I definitely feel it in the sides of my hips! I am still dealing with the Plantar Fasciitis but during most of the walk, I don't feel it.

Today got HOT rather quickly but I pushed onward! I will have to start earlier if this is going to become a habit!

    Wow, that's a very creative way of calculating distance. And that's awesome that you have the willpower to do that 5 miles and stay so close to your house. I have a 5 mile route through my neighborhood as well, but the only way I can guarantee myself that I'll walk the 5 miles is if I walk 2.5 miles away from my house and then if I want to get home, I'll have to walk the 2.5 miles back, lol.

    I am impressed! You may find you speed up significantly as time passes. Three years and 12 kilos ago my walk to work took me 45 min. Now it takes under 30 min, and I am not even breaking a sweat unless it is really hot outside.
