I have not been walking much in the last couple of weeks, but I finally got a walk in tonight.
However, I just got my walk in as it will soon be raining again.
The lack of walking comes from several factors over the last couple of weeks.
First, I spent a week in Canada where the temperatures were a bit colder. However, another limiting factor was that I wanted to spend time with my friends on the weekend rather than going for a walk on my own. During the week I got a couple miles a day as I walked back and forth to work, but still far less than usual.
Then when I got home I had the flu which totally wiped out all walking for several days. See: Flu plus Jet-lag plus Time Change
Last week I averaged less than 1.5 miles a day which was mostly just getting around at work and home.
I did get in a bit of a walk on Sunday afternoon, but still ended the day with less than two miles. I had planned on walking last night, but it was raining. This has actually been a big contributing factor as it has often been raining when I would normally go walking.
Near the end of my walk I felt a few sprinkles, but the rain did not start as soon as predicted.
As I finish writing this post I see that the forecast has stabilized and it should start raining very soon.
It felt good to finally get in a good walk. I walked for about a mile and a half at a very good pace. I am ending up the day with about 4.5 miles which is the most I have walked in a day this month and is usually about my daily average. I need to keep it up.
Now for some rest after the walk 🙂
