Surprise! A Saturday post!

I'm only here to brag about my walk yesterday. Remember last week when I said my next time goal was going to be 85 minutes? Well I nailed it and then some.

First, I want to show you the elevation of my usual route:

Now here's the best part:

75 minutes and 23 seconds! I tried so hard to get the last half mile done in six minutes, but I thought perhaps continuing to breathe would be better than falling over. Twenty-three seconds doesn't sound like very much time at all, but it's an eternity when you're not used to running any more.

That is all … enjoy your weekend!

That's really cool, Debbi! How did you derive that little record you posted here? What a neat thing! I'm showing my age, I know, but will risk it for the reward of learning something new! Tell, tell...for those of us who are still in the Pleistocene!

Yay you! Congratulations on exceeding your goal.

Whoa baby! You rock! The elevation is pretty daunting and your ability to keep to a good pace - and better it - with such elevation changes tells me a lot about your endurance and general fitness.
