Not close to being ready for a marathon walk…

Well, while my wife was at Easter I walked. Sunny, brisk (42 F, or 5 C), somewhat windy. I chose a course near bathrooms. I walked the W. Peoria course, to the cemetery and none loop, then to the W. Peoria track (3.9 miles in 58 minutes); then 18 laps of the .44 mile track (with diversions to the port-o-potty), then .75 miles home. It all took 3:15 for 12.6-12.7 miles, which is revoltingly slow.

But I knew that this would be an off day, even prior to getting out there. And, my long walks are a struggle when I am trying to run hard.

And: the marathon isn’t until October 18
