I finally got around to googling a decent pedometer hack for Google maps and discovered that the distance from my front door to my turnaround point pretty much exactly 6 miles. So that means my pace was exactly 4 mi/hr, which is not too bad for a walking pace. I could probably do some race-walking and speed that up, but for sustainability, 4.0 isn’t a problem. I can do that all day. That’s very good news.
I’ve pointed out before that I am backwards when it comes to recovery. Most people wake up feeling sore and achy and get better as they go through their day. Not I, sweetiepie. I wake up feeling great and get worse as the day goes on, even if I am doing active rest and stretching. Magic, is what I am.
Yesterday followed that pattern pretty well. I woke up feeling pretty good, and even went so far as to put workout clothes on, but as the day progressed, it became apparent that I wasn’t going to be walking anywhere. Sigh. Stretching was about the best I could do.
Today is shaping up to be a similar situation. Bleh. Normally, I would go out there and walk that route again but I can’t today because Jillian doesn’t have school and there’s no way she’s going to do six miles! So we will probably bust out Just Dance for the Wii. I have to keep myself moving or all the muscles will seize up and I won’t be able to do anything!
