Today I really wanted to walk...its Easter and I have been nibbling on chocolate and eating out alot... I really need to get out.
It was nice this afternoon....the rain has stopped and the cloud lifting. It wasnt super hot which was a nice change. The walk way was packed as normal, lots of kids on bikes and people walking their dogs. I decided to add in bursts of speed to make this walk a little more substantial. So every couple of km I would pick up for 500m of it. I felt good and strong during this walk and had planned to do 12 km but when I got to 8km my back was starting to ache and so I decided to not push it and stop at 10k, As I dont have any events that I am training for at the moment I would rather stop than end up hurt.
Its only 2 weeks not till I go to bangkok. Not sure how I will cope with ZERO exercise for at least 4 weeks. I guess I will cope .. well I have to dont I.
time for today was pretty decent for a training walk. 10km in 1:02:10 for an avg of 6:13 per km. I am happy with that.
