I am learning that you cannot just go out and do this. preparation is key! I have been doing a number of walks in the 5 to 7 mile range and felt like I was doing quite well. I did an 8 mile walk in Las Vegas last Thursday which went great. So this weekend I stretched it out, and did a walk from our house to Martha’s resting place, 16 miles! Well the walk went fine, it was the getting out of bed this morning that was a challenge. Bottom line is I need to make sure I stick to a schedule as I was reminded by my daughter this morning. She said that was only one day, and I have a lot of those to do, in a row… OK so that means train, train, train!
