Walking and other things
Today my husband was working a later shift so before lunch, when he was playing with daughter I took the time for myself and went for a walk. No stroller to push was really nice. That same old nasty wind was there so I just started my walk facing it to do the hardest part first. I took a new trail and made it to the rotary park and followed another new path that leads to a street that I normally walk with daughter. It was nice to walk through the bush, hear the river and even some birds. When I got home 1 hour later my legs were all shaky and I was really tired. I sat down for 5 minutes and made myself something to eat, then I found out that I was not as tired anymore. I mean before it would have taken me longer to get over the walk!
So in 1hour and 5 minutes I walked 5.05 km, burned 391 calories and climbed 4 floors (little hills really). I really enjoy those Fitbit stats! For the whole day I did 11800 steps and by the way I am now participating in a walking challenge at “stopping the wind” and I will go log my steps before I forget again…
Ok, I am back now…So where was I? … what I find really weird is the few times that I had long walks I hate less during the day. I would think it would be the opposite but I am not complaining about that!
I seem to have hit a little plateau this week, I am still doing my weight lifting and strength exercise every other day and I wish I could say the same for my long walk but I am trying. I have been under calorie goal for a while too so I will just keep at it and try to be more patient.
It’s about time that I start walking seriously because the other day and today, after and during the walk I had a sore back. Getting pain in the back from walking? Really? I always knew my back was the weakest part of my body but at this point it’s almost ridiculous. I guess there is some muscles in there that don’t get use enough.
