30 MILES-week 4 recap

Saturday, July 21, 2012

This is what I tried my best to avoid all week. Therefore, I did not get in a lot of miles. It was just plain hot!
In between bouts of plain hot, it rained. Hard. Lightning, thunder. The whole sha'bang.'
So I had almost resigned myself to failing my weekly goal. Almost.
Thankfully, my mailbox is .38 miles round trip. I knew if I could get my shoes on and make that trip then I could get something done.
I finally completed my goal yesterday. I left the tunes and spent the time doing the figures for my goal. I figured if it is .38 to the mailbox, then .38 around the yard twice, then I might as well go back down to the mailbox for a grand total of 1.14.

Really? I would only have to do this three times a week to go over my goal.
There is no heat excuse for not going to the mailbox evey day to spread it out if needed.
BTW I was really concentrating on working the numbers out as I walked and this conversation was out loud. Good thing we live in the sticks.

Short story over, I am back on track for reaching my 30 miles by 30 years goal!!

What I Learned in week 4:
1) I learned that getting my shoes on IS the hardest part.
2) I learned that drinking more water will keep me from reaching for the salt. Usually.
3) I learned that it's okay to talk to yourself while walking, as long as you are ALONE.

Week 1-3.01
Week 2-7.53
Week 3-1.38
Week 4-3.39 emoticon
Total: 12.82/30

    I agree with what you have learned in Week 4, #1 and #2 but #3 made me laugh coz I hum my favourite songs when I walked, whether it was a workout or just walking along the corridor, hehe.

    Great for you to still on track!
