Walkajogging is Paying Off
Lovely downhill section of the world-famous Old South loop
Not only have I been getting out the door regularly for walking loops in Greenway Park and the 'Hood (14 walks/jogs - 2 to 6 miles in length - in the last 15 days), but I have included walking + jogging during 6 of those outings.
And during the last two nights, upon a two-mile-loop in Old South, I jogged almost the entire distance. I know, it doesn't sound like much but for the guy making The GREAT Canadian Comeback it is a significant breakthrough. My experience - let's call it 'The BIG Breakthrough' - is similar to Snoopy and his Sopwith Camel breaking the sound barrier. Very similar!
Snoopy and I have the very same walking style.

By the Numbers:
My GOTD (Get Out The Door) rate was 84% in July, and after 10 months
of records stands at 89%. Not bad, not bad at all.
I covered 111 significant miles in July, and after 10 months
I maintain a healthy 119 miles/month average.
2 short but sturdy jogs in a row. Things are looking up.
For 9 months in a row I have recorded 100-plus miles
of walking or walking/jogging. (Let's go for 10!)
The "good walkajog" on July 27 lead to a breakthrough 3 days later
On Edward St., near Baseline Rd., what goes up must come down

Prediction: I will break the 1.5-mile barrier in August while wearing red spandex tights.
Stay tuned for more exciting details.
