Deb set the pace, which was pretty quick. We walked straight out on the bike trail for 25 min., then turned around to meet the others who were starting at about 8 a.m. We turned around and went straight out for another 30 min., but it took only 28 for us to return.
Because of where we started, it wasn't accurate to use the mile markers on the trail. And because the pace seemed fast, using our ballpark of a 15-min mile didn't work either. Luckily, one of the walkers had GPS and it indicated we had actually walked 7.5 miles! The online pace calculator I use
Not bad considering Thursday I had trouble maintaining a 15-min mile! What a difference a couple of days can have on your pace! I'm sure resting Friday helped, too.
