Goodbye 22, Hellooooooooooo 21
Another week of training has passed - whew! This weekend rather than walking in the nice "June gloom" of the So Cal morning, I'll be in the AZ heat. Wish me luck =)
How 'bout some updates on week 22?
Training: 17.5 miles walked + 30 mins cross training
Fundraising: $1,610 total
Already posted about my 5 mile on Saturday, during and after which, I felt great.
For the Sunday 3 mile I woke up my (nearly) 13 year old son and had him come with me.
It's good for him, and gave us some mother/son time =) Later that evening my neighbor invited me on a quick walk before dinner. Early into the 2.5 mile jaunt, my shins started revolting... I hate when that happens :(
Monday I took the suggested rest day, and did my 3 miles this morning. Rough walk.
I don't know why. My shins gave me a little trouble, I wasn't out of breath, but it was rough. I know that I sighed audibly on multiple occasions. The second half was mostly up-hill and I actually felt better at that point. Maybe it was the water I drank, maybe it was knowing I was heading home. I don't know. Blech.
Ain't nuthin' goin' on. Sigh. A few days ago I did sign up for an Insider Pages fundraisier, so we'll see when that gets started. I'm also thinking of starting a
Finding a Cure takes Change challenge (not sure about the name). Basically I'll ask people to save their change for one month and donate the entire jar-full to my 3Day fund.
Looking ahead, this week is going to be challenging. We're doing some travlling. I think I'll move my Friday cross-training to Wednesday, and just suck it up and walk in the AZ heat... along roads that are completely void of shade and changes in elevation. Go me!....?
