This is going to be a short post because not a lot happened today, and I’m really tired.
The highlight of the day was that we upped our walk from thirty minutes to an hour. I may have mentioned this plan in last night’s post. After our walk last night, Jon mentioned that maybe we were ready to push ourselves a bit more. Because we’re not focusing on speed, our next jump was to increase our endurance. Rather than pick a future time to start this and not have it ever happen, I said I was going to do it tonight, so I set my zombie mission for an hour, and we hit the rec center after doing some grocery shopping.
I didn’t do any zombie chases, because I wanted to pace myself to walk the full hour. I made it two laps around the track and another partial lap around the parking lot. I didn’t stop to rest, I just kept my pace steady the whole time. By the end of the hour, I was hurting a bit. My hips and one side of my lower back were a little sore, and my feet felt raw and tender. But I did it! My zombie mission ended at about thirty six minutes, but I finished out at sixty minutes and five seconds of walking (once the mission is complete, the music still plays and the program still has you pick up supplies. At the very end, I scored a bottle of whisky…in the game, not in real life).
January 2013: couldn’t walk for five minutes without needing to take a break.
December 2013: sixty minutes of walking with no break with plans to do it again soon.
It’s definitely been a good year.
Other than that, the day was busy at work. I almost didn’t even take a lunch break, but Forsh came to my rescue again and brought me some Subway. This was good since I was at that edge of hunger where I was getting downright crabby. Later, I worked on some projects, including….wait for it…starting the revision of one of this year’s Nanowrimo novels. If I can keep that up, I might even be able to let people read it soon.
I’m extremely tired, so I’m calling it a night here. Gotta be up and ready for another day.
