Yesterday was a wash; every time I thought about heading out it was raining. Yes, I do have a treadmill, but there was dim hope I'd be able to get out to walk...right up until we had enchiladas for lunch, and then I knew I wasn't going to.

I did get on the treadmill for a little while last night, but it was really just to test out the foot pod I got to work with my Garmin...something that will track my distance if I'm on the treadmill and not walking outside.

I headed out this morning thinking I'd do at least six, and was hoping for seven. I headed towards downtown, figuring I would go all the way around town, because surely that was seven miles...but not quite. It looks like a long way on paper and even feels long when you drive it, but in reality it's only about 5 miles. So I cut across on the bike path and added some distance to it.

I felt pretty good, too, and if not for the hot spot on the bottom of my foot that felt like it was too close to becoming a blister for comfort, I'm 90% sure I had 9-10 in me. I stopped at seven, and an hour later my feet are still burning. Hopefully they'll be all right by tomorrow.

I mentioned "Body Glide" on FB ... If you don't have it ... get it! I used vaseline on my feet (which messed up my shoes) until someone told me to get the Glide. Smear it on like creamcheese on a bagel (that's a New York thing) and you won't have blisters! REALLY!
When are you West Coasters doing a training walk together?
