Walking is something that I do every day, even on my laziest of days. Regardless,
- A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
I knew that I would need to start this thing off slowly. The beginning walking workouts that I've found all seemed to start off TOO slowly (15 minutes??) Instead, here's how my first day went.
11:05 - I left the house with keys, phone, id and a few $ in a little wallet purse thingie around my waist. After 10 minutes (of downhill walking) my shins were starting to hurt. It was time anyway, so I stopped and did some stretching. Apparently my shins were not happy, as I had to stop 2 more times to stretch them out. The second half of the walk was uphill, which actually hurt my shins less.
11:55 - Arrived home having walked 2.18 miles (according to www.gmap-pedometer.com ). Wow slow me! Grabbed some water and did my stretches.
Not a bad start, but I wish my shins hadn't hurt so much.
Plan for tomorrow- Sunscreen (hellooo it's sunny and 83 degrees! In January!), sun visor, and get an earlier start.
