The weather was great this morning for a four mile walk – just above freezing and not a cloud in the sky. Last night I realized that my training schedule called for a four mile walk on Monday. Oops! So now I’ve shifted my schedule forward one day for the rest of the week.
I joined Team Rio last week and they provide a weekly training schedule for half and full marathons – beginner, intermediate and advanced. I guess runners and walkers use the same schedule. Anyway, I’m using the schedule for beginners “doing” the half marathon. Four miles twice this week plus 7 miles on Saturday. In between I will be walking two miles or so each day to get in my 8,500 steps a day (this week’s minimum). Click to track my walking results.
I am walking in the Country Music half marathon on April 30, 2011 to support two groups. If you would like to make an online contribution to either of these groups to support my walk, simply click on one of the following links:
