Speeding Up in Fine Form
"Sometimes I do a bit extra"
Two things I want to mention right off:
1. I collected enough extra miles in the last two days to qualify for a bonus. So an 'extra' walk is listed on April 6.
2. I walked solo yesterday and after a one mile warm up I started to - insert laugh track here - shuffle off to Buffalo.
I would like to say that I was a shufflin' phenom. At every quart mile marker I picked up the pace enough to actually look like I was doing more than walking faster. Oh yeah, I showed off some smooth moves. Why, if I repeat that procedure enough times over the next 79 walks, I'll really feel like I'm getting somewhere - faster than usual.
"Feeling good in red spandex and sturdy footwear" : )
Though I'm not going to push myself too hard, I feel I've built up a significant base over the last six months of brisk walking, i.e., 25 - 30 miles per week average distance.
Go slow and enjoy the view, I say.

The view is out there.
