I'm Mia, I'm retired and currently living in East Anglia. I'm on Day1 at SP so your journal is a timely reminder to me to take walking in easy stages. I still recall the awful pain in my shins following my first real long walk in years. I walked for an hour (really it was more of a march, as I strode out purposefully) and felt great but as soon as I got home, my shins became painful. I must look into warming up and stretching before attempting another walk, even a short one.
Have added you as a Sparkfriend as I'd like to read more about your experiences and progress, if that's fine with you!
Sparkling good wishes to all sparkfriends Mia
