In order to fit in a five-mile walk today, I had to go to the gym super early. In fact, I was so early the gym wasn't even open yet!
At first I started to panic - I have every minute planned out because things are so busy and I didn't have time to waste 30 minutes. Luckily, logic popped in pretty quickly.
Hello, you're just here to walk. You can do that anywhere!
So I did. For 20 minutes until the gym opened I walked the parking lot and really did enjoy the breeze that surrounded me. Not a fan of the stares, but I was able to block those out.
Then, once the gym opened, I hopped on the treadmill and noticed something immediately. Time drags on the treadmill!
Prior to today, I wasn't really looking forward to tackling Saturday's 10-mile walk sans treadmill, but it's kinda nice to just turn on the iPod (audio books rock!) and not constantly be thinking about how far you've gone or how long the walk has been.
I haven't picked my route yet, but I think it should end somewhere greasy! I know I'll be starving after a ten mile walk!
