Walk 65: A little of everything

Today, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do. I wasn’t even sure how to dress, other than not going out naked (it’s still a bit on the cool side). I finally opted for a double layer to protect against the wind, gambling that the rain would hold off–and it did!

My next decision was how much to walk vs. how much to run. What I ended up doing was this:

  • Walked just under 4 km to the end of the river trail
  • Ran the 2 km back to entrance of river trail
  • Walked partway back up river trail, then home, a little under 3 km

This makes the stats a bit tricky, so what I’m doing for today only is listing the combined walk stats first, then the run stats after.

As for the outing, it was nice to get out and get moving again. The treadmill is fine, but it’s so much nicer to be outside and actually have full control of when you stop and start and how fast you move. I went a bit slow ‘n steady on the run part and came in at an even 6:00/km, which is okay given how little I’ve been running. No cramps or other issues. Even my shoe laces stayed tied!

Now I just need to go more often and maybe have the weather get a wee bit closer to seasonal.
