First Walk at Work

Thursday, July 09, 2015

My employer has started a "Walk on Wednesday" program that allows employees to stay on the clock and walk on Wednesday afternoon for up to an hour.

Yesterday was my first time participating. It was very hot, very humid, and very sunny. I was able to walk 1.25 miles in about 40 minutes.

I can tell that is progress. Six months ago (pre joint replacement) I would not have been able to do half of that walking because the pain was exhausting.

Next week, I'm going to try to get in an additional lap. I'm also planning to bring a water bottle so that I can avoid feeling dehydrated.
