another walk

Saturday, April 17, 2010

emoticon Yesterday afternoon we decided to get a walk in. Gotta keep trying to work on endurance for the 12K next month. We walked a path we usually bike on, Coyote Creek Trail. It is paved (rough pavement) and goes under and over roads - so we had some hills. There is one big hill and probably several smaller inclines along the 12K path in San Francisco. City on a hill - actually I read that there are 127 hills in the city of SF. I think our path will not take in all of them though emoticon

We saw some good sights we don't usually see when we bike because we are watching the road and going faster. It is along a creek with turtles and little varmints running across in front of you. There is a park with a lake where there are lots of ducks, etc. Families were out with strollers and little bikers. The trees are flowering and it was enjoyable... I really tried to push it with my short legs trying to keep up with the long legged dh again.

We were so ready to stop and turn around after 1 hour - we stopped on a bench had some fruits & nuts mix and water before heading back. My hips and legs were feelin' it from the uneven pavement I think. All terrains are different and your body feels it when not used to it. I tracked it on SP fitness maps tracker and it said we walked 7.8 miles round trip. I wasn't sure on the exact spot where we stopped so I figure we did at least 7.5 miles. I had a bandaid on my toe and no blisters emoticon

Hey I think I can do this 12 K - it figures out to be about 7.6 I think miles or around there. Now we just have to do it without stopping and resting in the middle. AND in the morning... I am not a morning person. The race starts at 8am - gotta be in line at 7:15am and it takes a little over an hour to drive - then find the place and collect stuff before.
We may have to leave at 5am, Oh My! emoticon emoticon

We looked into public transportation - caltrain & bart subway - the train doesn't run that early on Sunday morning and they do have a special early train - just not early enough for participants to get there on time. So we decided to drive. It will be an experience we are looking forward to. emoticon

Have a great week! emoticon

    my tip put on bandaids anywhere you MIGHT get a blister and it prevents it in the first place
