I just finished Week 12 of my walking challenge, which I’ve nicknamed, ‘My Coronavirus Camino.’ The rules are simple, I’m going to walk every day for a minimum of two miles until I reach 500 miles. There is no rush to finish–I’m just going to do it! This ‘magic number’ is the length of the Camino Frances in France/Spain.
- 6/5/2020-2.11 miles
- 6/6/2020-2.01 miles
- 6/7/2020-2.24 miles
- 6/8/2020-3.17 miles
- 6/9/2020-3.03 miles
- 6/10/2020-2.02 miles
Total for the Week--16.59 miles Total for 'My Coronavirus Camino'--353.03 miles
Oh boy! You can really see how my busy work schedule has been impacting my walking. Although the week’s mileage total isn’t that impressive, I’m proud that I’ve stuck to my goal and have continued to walk every day. I have walked for 84 consecutive days so far.
6/6/2020–Debbie and I decided to go back to the James Charles Winery & Vineyard today. We really enjoyed one of their wines the last time we were there, so we wanted to go back and try it again. I planned to walk after returning home, but the day was perfect and the wine was great, so we ended up staying at the winery for hours. I realized that by the time we got home, it would be very late in the date, and I was worried that this would be the day that I broke my walking steak.
Debbie suggested that we walk before going home, so that’s what we did! We walked 2.01 miles, which cracks me up…nothing like just barely accomplishing my goal. Unfortunately, I’ve taken a lot of short walks this week. My work hours have been long, the weather has been getting hotter & hotter, and I have felt worn out at the end of each day. Oh, well…things will improve…I need more relaxing days like today!
