I started training for my walkathon yesterday. They tell us to start with a 3-mile walk and then gradually move up throughout the 24 weeks of training. I realized that the route I’ve been walking just for fun equals out to 3.2 miles, so I was happy.
So I went out yesterday wearing my toning shoes. That was a bit of a mistake since there was still ice on the ground. I managed most of the walk without falling, but on the way back home I slipped and landed on my right elbow and thigh. I landed on more snow, though, so the snow broke my fall! No big deal, I was more embarrassed than anything, and I laughed the rest of the way home….partly because I fell, partly because I’m sure people could see me laughing and wondered what was up.
Anyway, my teammate and I will walk a bit on Monday. It’s President’s Day. We don’t have to work a full day, so between shifts we’ll walk a bit! I’m glad we’re walking together, she’s so much fun to work with at the office.
