Walking in Maryland
Monday, November 22, 2010
I'm in Maryland visiting family this week. I flew in on Saturday and even managed to get some light walking in during a 2 hour layover. On Sunday, no exercise except for light walking to and from Metro to have a Birthday lunch with my sister and neice. They both think I brought some of our California weather to Maryland since the days have been mild (light jackets and nice in the sun). Thank you Thank you.
Today, I went walking with my sister. I thought I was a fast walker but I have nothing on my sister. We did 6 miles and she actually had me huffing as I kept up with her speed. She even manages to keep up a steady conversation. I thought we did pretty good time wise (1 hr 39min) but she said she usually does this in 1 hr 15min. Okay, I think she has given me a challenge and told her next year we need to do a 1/2 marathon. She would be sensational!
I can't wait to walk tomorrow morning but hate that I may mess up my pedicure. Yep, we did a manicure/pedicure day, plus some shoe shopping. Which reminds me I have some shoes on hold at DSW to decide tomorrow.
This evening we did all the food shopping for Thanksgiving dinner.
Not a bad day and the best blessing is my ankles are not swollen from flying anymore. Woo Hoo!!!
BTW - I had a pint of Haagen Daas yesterday for my birthday. This was really bad but hey it was my birthday, right!
