So I got drunk and agreed see how far I can get round the 2008 Parish Walk!
So, I haven't walked for 20 years. I am 5foot 11 and 14 stone. This is going to be interesting.
I did my first training walk today. Funnily enough the technique is all still there. Relaxed shoulders, fluid arms, forward flat movement. Just very very slow!
Monday 26th November 2007. 88.8 Kilos (14st) 23% body fat:
I did what I will call the "Small Bride Loop" today. Its 3.82 miles. It took me 48:14, which is 12:37 mile pace. My shins were killing me all the way. My hips ached and now I have finished I have cramp down the side of my left foot. A start at least.
How on earth did I manage a 52 mins 10k? It seems a long way away...
