Got up early this morning and headed down to Emerald Lakes. Its a nice flat, paved area that I can walk with out too many hassels......a couple of rises but nothing major.
Today shane came with me and so I told him to turn back when the path ends at 2km and that I will walk around til I hit 2.5km. I will turn back go past him and then once I reach the car turn back to met up with him again. I was hoping to do 6km.
We started out (the photo is off the start point) and just then a shower of rain came over. I was not too worried...it was about 15degs at 7am....NICE!!! by the first km I was feeling so sluggish....I was slow and heavy and not enjoying the walk at all. BUT nothing was hurting so thats a good thing. I was also testing out some new shoes. We had found some Saucony shoes that I just LOVE for $80 at Harbour Town - they are black!
On my way back I was feeling more in style and more fluid. Still very unfit and did wonder how I will go with the 5km this weekend. But time will tell.
time was 36:37 for 6km
