I have just returned from the park, where I was able to get in a decent walk. Not the fastest, but it was certainly better than yesterday’s fiasco. I did the 6.25 miles in 84 minutes; then I took a minute off of that number because of stopping a few times to blow my nose and make adjustments to my clothing. Make that 83 minutes and that puts me at 13.28 minute miles. And that’s OK.
The walk started off OK, but it took almost 2 miles for my body to get used to the cold. Breathing that chilly air was almost painful! At the 4 mile point I took off my ear warmers and gloves and never needed them again.
