Morning all. As husband had to get to work and I slept in a bit, I needed a shorter route. At 8.15am I headed south instead of north. I didn’t do a warm up and began walking a little too quickly. Within 2 minutes I felt my calf tense up. I stopped and did stretches for both legs. I was quite pleased with myself that I knew what to do and that it worked. I walked up to the main road into town. It was a different feeling to be side by side with the traffic but was still a route that I have never walked before. It was nice to pass other walkers, most were older and some had their dogs with them.
Once I crossed the bridge and ended up on the walking track it was more peaceful and pleasant especially with the big gums alongside. I can’t walk fast enough to feel moderate puffing so I started to do a Cliff Young shuffle. Within 20 seconds I couldn’t take it. If only I could find something in between! Heart and lungs are yet to be trained.
I made it back within 25 minutes. Perfect. All in time for husband to go to work. Now I’m going to have a shower and have brekky. Have a good day all.
