My foot began hurting a few days ago. I don't think it is any serious injury - just a result of a whole lot of walkin'. It's uncomfortable enough just getting around the house and work, but heading out to intentionally walk, aka train, on it isn't much of a picnic.
This morning at mile 3 I started counting back from 1000. 999...998...997. And on I went for some time, enjoying the scenery and the walk, my mind distracted from my foot.
658..657...656...On to mile 4. Almost done. 410..409...... 657..656...
At first I don't notice. In fact I don't notice that I jumped up 200 numbers until I hit 410 again.
Oh well - - I ended mile 5 somewhere in the 200s. It was a good walk. I finished. That's good enough. I limped a bit the rest of the day but I guess I need to be showing those I work with how hard I'm working at this walking thing.
