Walk 108: Now with more walking

View from Cariboo Dam, slightly different angle to avoid sun glare

Today I whimsically (?) decided to walk 10K instead of 8K. Why? I don’t know! But I did walk, without any real running, because I ran yesterday and I’m running tomorrow and I don’t want to scare my knees.

Instead, I walked at a gradually increasing pace to the lake, then went around the Spruce and Conifer Loops before heading back.

The biggest changes:

  • Slower pace of 9:05/km (no running, as mentioned)
  • It was 25C! It didn’t feel overly warm or anything, thanks to a strong breeze.
  • 10 km! So far, this has not had any noticeable side effects.

I wore sunblock for the first time this year, but it’s Hawaiian Tropic, and it has this weird fruity smell I don’t really like, so I may have to go back to Banana Boat. We’ll see.

I am over 20,000 steps on the day as of 5:31 p.m. I think I’ll take it easy now.

The lake trail, with even the tall grass mostly green already. (There’s a lake, trust me.)
