Yeah, it’s a cheezy title, but the fact is that I walked both Saturday and Sunday this week with 4.1 and 4.6 miles respectively. I averaged about 16.5 minutes/mile which isn’t breaking any land speed records, but it was faster than I trained with last year. I think that walking at this faster pace now will help me on the walk to walk further without getting injury.
Big thanks to my wife for motivating me to get out there and walk. I know she doesn’t probably realize it, but asking questions like, “When do you think you’re going to walk today” kinda forces the issue of yes I did say I was going to walk today. I didn’t realize that not having someone in your team local was going to be hard to get motivated, so that’s a big help.
