Nearly 14 Miles

When Deb picks the day we do our long slow distance, it is always the one day of the weekend that the weather is great. Today was perfect - the rain stopped, the sun was shining, the snow melted.

We did 3.5 laps at a park with about 4 miles per lap. We figured we walked about 13.4miles in 3 hours and 27 minutes. The last mile we walked slowly and used as our cool down. Though I felt great when we finished, and our stretches felt great, I had a very difficult time with the first two miles. In fact, the first mile was so difficult, I was tempted to quit. Thank goodness Deb was with me.

We're only a couple weeks away from our longest Big Sur training walk of 18 miles. I'm looking forward to it!
