I know that you are all healthy and fit, so my little effort today will seem very meagre, but I’ve done it. I walked 5k in my virtual walking race, and the pictures above are a few that I took on the way. I did it in 66 minutes, and maybe I could have done it a little faster if I hadn’t taken my camera, but my aim was to DO it – not break a record.
Since then I’ve also walked to the local shop, a distance of about 2 miles. Now I’m suffering! My back is playing up, and I should have taken pain killers before I left. However, the ‘training regime for the 5k was so gradual that I haven’t needed to take medication before or after each session. I was just a little too ambitious today, but I’m sure I’ll live to tell the tale. If anyone wants to follow the same plan you can find it here.
What’s next? Well, first of all a cup of tea, and then I’ll think about the next step. I think I’ll be walking this distance quite often, especially while the weather holds. I missed the rain, just as well, I forgot my raincoat.
