Tuesday's walk.....like a turtle
Tuesday, September 17, 2013
I just realized today how slow I am really walking, but I'm happy all the same. Less than one month ago I could not walk 10 meters and today I can walk .89 kms, even if it takes me 65 mins I can do it! I have an illness that also affects the muscles with muscle weakness and have not walked for almost 2 years, so this is a big deal to me.
I actually counted the steps I took today on my walk. I wrote down each segment (I take many rest stops) and calculated a total of 1885 steps, then I counted my pass in meters (I take short little passes still) and came up with a total of .89 km in 65 mins or .55 miles per hour........very, very, very slow!
I'm going to stick with this distance for a while and see if I can improve on the time needed. I already see today I have less weakness and tiredness after this walk.
I don't know if I need support, bec I'm happy with what I'm doing. I guess I'm looking for any other ideas or comments on how to proceed.
