Although, it was cold we pushed through it and I am very happy we did. We walked on the Canalside Bike Path. It is beautiful and free of cars which makes it so nice. We all pushed through the 3 mile walk and in the end we ended up beating our over time by 6 minutes. Great accomplished for all of us. Now that 5:00 am wake up doesn't seem all that bad and I think I will have no problem sleeping tonight!
If you were wondering I use an application called, "Endomondo" for my phone to determine time and distance. I find it accurate and easy to use. When hitting pause it shows your split time and you can save each time so you can compare your progress. It runs on GPS as well, so it will map where you walked. I really love this app. I recommend it.
Even though we were able to do 3 miles, don't feel that you have to do that too. Experts say (no I am not an expert) that even breaking up your exercise into three 10 minute walks it is still healthy and beneficial. So I encourage everyone to get up and get moving. I promise you won't regret it. And you too will be able to improve your distance and time.
My next goal: Add hand weights.
