Hi all. Quite a hot day and a bit of a late start. I was awoken at 5am by a noise outside, probably a possum thudding about. Then I lay awake till 6am. I almost got up but decided to get some more sleep, which I did until 8.30am. Well of course that put everything out of whack. And it was getting hot. We had already planned to go shopping at a town 15 minutes from here so I decided to walk part of the way. The others picked me up just as I had walked for 20 minutes.
Getting back to the walk, I took it easy for the first 5 minutes for warm up and then went more quickly. I did the arm swinging up to shoulder height as Wendy suggested. It really made a difference and was a better workout. I was a bit embarrassed about it and often stopped swinging if I thought a passing car might be looking at me. Then I got a stitch. I blamed it on having eaten breakfast and drinking 2 glasses of water prior. Once the stitch set in I slowed down. So my next walk will be before food and not by a busy road where people can see how silly I look. But it’s another day that I’ve completed the right amount of exercise. Yay.
