Gosh I was a little sore today. Glutes were tender so I decided to walk later in the day. Not sure now if that was wise or not. But i sure am buggered now.
I thought I would go a more direct route...thinking it would be 3km to the start of the 1km walkway. But it ended up only being 2.250km and the walkway was being repaired so I had to muck around trying to cross the busy road to find my way across. But this path is perfect...its wide, flat and got a measured 1km. Perfect as I need to get used to back and forth over a 1km.
Along the walkway I was averaging 6.15 per km and was really pleased with that considering my legs were starting to get pretty heavy.
While I was walking a group of people had been watching me go back and forth called out to me. They asked if I knew the walker guys who won medals. I was very proud to say that I did ..... they asked me to pass on congrats. How cool is that!
I headed for home with a new found burst of energy. I picked a different way home so my 13km become 13.5km a little bonus for the coach 😊
1.25 for 13.5 km with an avg pace of 6.21 per km - avg heart rate 150
I made sure I stretched and rolled myself over the foam roller. Looking forward to a rest day tomorrow.
