Walk Across America, Week 4 Report

Monday, May 21, 2012

This week I totaled 35.89 miles - less than last week, but still respectable considering the my continuing limited exercise capabilities. I even got in 14,144 steps on Sunday, which is my 2nd-highest day so far (the first high day was when I was over-doing it!)

A bright spot in the week was Saturday evening's walk with my husband. We walked for a FULL hour, at what felt like a normal pace, and I had NO back pain the entire time. I wonder if walking on the dirt path instead of the asphalt for most of the walk had something to do with that? We switched to the asphalt for a little bit, and it really did feel less forgiving.

M 3.92 / 4.95 / 6.16 / 5.01
T 6.94 / 7.62 / 5.93 / 3.5
W 6.02 / 6.62 / 4.32 / 5.51
R 6.55 / 6.34 / 3.74 / 3.89
F 5.57 / 6.34 / 5.56 / 5.24
S 5.70 / 4.40 / 6.22 /5.67
S 5.21 / 4.71 / 6.68 / 7.07

Weekly: 39.91 / 40.99 / 38.60 / 35.89
Cumulative miles: 155.38

On the weight side, I gained 2.2 this week, due to ONE binge-y day on Saturday. I really stuffed myself with treats, and frankly, it didn't feel good (though the treats were tasty:)). My calorie averagel for my 6 on-plan days was 1431, and I can only guess that I went well over 2000 on Saturday, as I didn't track.

And, this morning on the treadmill, I was able to start at 1.7 mph instead of 1.6, and did a full 15 minutes at 2.0. So, I'm making progress, albeit slowly. This whole business is really a lesson in patience for me.
