Maximus' journal

Okay, I've signed up! This is happening. I've been walking five miles a day for the oast few weeks. I think it's time to kick it up a notch, as I am no longer sore after a brisk five miles (averaging 13 minutes miles right now)

dh is being so supportiveClick here to enlarge He is the best.

Steady feet, don't fail me now


I don't remember what day this is without coffee, but it's a day and it's going.

Only three miles today, in the wind and rain. I felt really stiff the first mile, but felt so good afterwards! I almost didn't go, but dh insisted, and I am so glad I did.


Total miles to date: 35!

I got in 3 miles on Friday, and about 5 1/2 on Saturday. I wanted to walk yesterday, but with church and Sunday dinner, plus dh begging to go to Lowes, I didn't get a chance. I felt disappointed missing a day, even though logically I know thats okay.

I am trying to lengthen my stride, knowing that Camo is much taller than me, and I will need more steps for her every one step. I am excited she is walking too. My parents pledged me some money this weekend, as well as Beerhore Click here to enlarge. Dad is putting out the word!

I was stiff yesterday, but did the second mile in under 14 minutes. I am not sore today, so I can probably add more miles now.

I have been walking 4-5 miles at a time 5 days a week now. I have to figure out what I am going to do this summer. With dh on drill status his hours are irregular at best, and the boys will be home all the time in two months. I think we are going to have to invest in a better treadmill, because otherwise, I am not sure how much walking I can get in.

Did 6 miles today. phew!

I am up to 5 miles four days a week. One day of rest, and the other two days I do aerobics with dh's unit Click here to enlarge

I am working hard, but don't feel like I am moving very fast. Camo is probably going to be leaving me behind.Click here to enlarge

I did a 7 mile walk this morning in an hour and fifteen minutes. I felt really sick afterwards though, and I know it's because I didn't eat breakfast before I went. After I got home and ate something, I felt a million times better.

I am done with my online check in! Just a few weeks to go!

Only five miles this morning because I took the dog with me, and he wanted to stop and play with this lady's dogs, so we didn't have time to go further. I'll take him out again tonight for another 5 miles I think.
