Last week was good. If the idea is consistency, the I sort of made it. I worked Election Day, last Tuesday, so didn’t do a formal work out, but if you count all the extra steps, I got in a few miles. On the other hand, it’s not nearly as far to the library as I thought it was, so my long walk fell short. But I made my weekly mileage goal. Just bumped up again this week, too.
The interesting thing is that while it’s taking longer to get tired while I’m walking (a good sign, I hope), I’m a lot more tired by the end of the day. Yesterday, I did a 2-mile walk and could barely keep my eyes open by 6 p.m. This is not a good thing when I’m counting on my late nights to get in my NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) writing done. Feh.
Thinking time is really great, too. It’s certainly helping my novel, since I now have time to think about scenes and plot points while I’m walking. I hope that part continues as I get in the longer walk days.
