I got to do the walk I was hoping to today which was great, and I knocked ten minutes off of my time from when I did it last month which was even better! My husband and I must have been practically flying today to take that big a chunk of time off. There weren’t too many people on the path, but I don’t remember seeing anyone on foot except for joggers pass us by.
While I’m on the subject of joggers, I have to mention that we just went out for a quick evening stroll to close out the day. As soon as our feet hit the pavement I asked my husband, “do you want to jog?” After shaking the mildly terrified look from his face he agreed and we immediately began to do just that. I managed two minutes before I tapered off into my walking speed!
I’m not really sure where that sudden burst of energy and enthusiasm came from, but I’ll take it! Of course now I have somewhat deluded visions of looking into the C25K program that I hear everyone talking about and of running a 5K and maybe eventually a 10K race. (I just looked up how long a marathon is and did you know it’s over forty-two kilometers long?! Seriously? At least I know I’m not that deluded yet!) What is wrong with me? I need some type of therapy to help me return to my senses! Where’s that television remote and package of ding dongs!?!
