WALKING FOR A CAUSE...AND SOMETIMES JUST BECAUSE

Slow-Mo

5-31-10

I got my asterisk out of bed at a more human-type hour this morning, with the idea that I'd beat the heat. Everything felt good, legs not sore, energy abounding...

When I headed out, I was on pace; by 2 miles in I realized I was slowing down, and by 3 my shins were aching again. By mile 4, my left foot had some weird little pains poking at the arch.

I was still over a mile from home, though. I pointed myself in that direction and kept going, saying a few choice words when my Camelback was suddenly empty and when I started to limp a bit.

Yes, I stretch.

In the end, it took me two hours to go 5.68 miles. Not terrific by any stretch of the imagination, but at least I didn't freeze up right there in the middle of Lincoln Street.

Lots of traffic today.

That would have been inconvenient.
