Good Daily Energy Level.
Cooler temperatures seem to help.
Fall temperatures are dropping so I've had to add 30 seconds to my 'getting ready to go' routine. It takes a bit longer now to select the right jacket to match my eyes. : )
But there are benefits to the cooler weather. I sleep like a rock some nights, colourful leaves adorn sidewalks and roadways, and - once warmed up - I maintain an enjoyable body-comfort zone while walking or jogging. All these things combine to help my energy level and pace remain strong and steady.
I try to cover 4 miles per walk, on average, and over the last 4 weeks my numbers have been positive, i.e., 110 miles covered in 25 outings. I have been heading out after supper on a frequent basis and have noticed how dark it is getting by 7 PM. Still, a small radio keeps me company (the World Series is on) and the miles seem to go by faster at that time of day.
Photos from along the way:
Daily mileage is in the top right corner of each block.
Cumulative mileage is lower right. Steady on!
My jogging pace is holding steady, even improving a bit!
I relaxed Sunday (i.e., motorcycled) so am adding miles during cool evenings
The Comeback: After 13 months I rank my energy level as "very good"
Walkn 'healthy miles' in Greenway Park and Old South
Keep on keeping on, I say. Highlights continue to be within reach.
