I talked my husband into walking with me tonight. We did two laps at Antrim Park at an easy pace, then I did a third lap alone at a fairly hard pace -- 16:34 for 1.2 miles -- a 13:48 mile!
What is amazing is, I have not walked hard in over a week and I did not feel as if I was walking overly hard today! And to walk 13:48 usually requires quite a bit of effort from me.
So two great things happened: 1) I got my husband out walking with me and, 2) I was at a great pace.
