I walked my first 10 mile day in this training so far.
All week I have been trying not to psyche myself out about it. I knew I would be alone and it would have been the longest I had walked yet. In addition my right foot is not playing along as well as I would like. But I knew that if I kept thinking about the negative, kept wondering if I could do it, that I would not do it.
I knew I could do it. But the mind is either your friend or your enemy and I needed it to be my friend. So I focused on the truth. I could do this. I would do this. And I will do it again.
One of my friends/co-worker joined me for the last 4 miles. That was a real boost and came at the right time. I was happy to have the company and someone to enjoy the beautiful weather with. I think I would have been just as successful without her, but it would not been nearly as enjoyable.
I've been so proud of myself all day I find myself smiling from time to time. Accomplishment feels good.
I repeat the same workout this coming week. Sunday 6, Tuesday 3, Thursday 5, Saturday 10.
Thanks for coming along.
