Well, yesterday (Friday) I did 5 miles on the treadmill at the gym. I was surprised to learn that the treadmills automatically shut off after an hour. But I restarted it and got it done. My feet were pretty tender on the bottoms after that, which is a concern. My next purchase will be some good double-layered socks.
Today Daisy and I got up to attempt 6 miles in the apartment complex. We ran out of steam at about 5 miles. Actually I think Daisy ran out of steam at about 3 miles, but she had the disadvantage of being on the end of a leash. Lesson learned: eat breakfast before walking.
Tomorrow I'm supposed to walk 8 miles, but I think I'm going to give my tootsies a rest. I may walk a few miles for good measure, but I'm going to try the exercise ball tomorrow instead of a long walk. Those of you who know me are now frightened. Don't worry: even if I fall off, it's not far to fall.
