I wrote this post last night, but fell asleep before I posted it. Classy!
Yesterday was my first training walk outside. I know, I know. I'm surprised that the weather cooperated too. Don't worry though. It's snowing now. The plan called for 8 miles, and I did 7.2. I only stopped because I had to get to EverProven to do 15.3.
The walk was great! I found a new breakfast place and visited a consignment shop. Look at this creepy doll!
That cat picture is pretty sweet.
I feel much more confident in my abilities to get through the Beast course. I still need to incorporate more hills and trail walking, but the fact that I could stay in my feet for a few hours is important. My shoes and Camelbak were comfortable. It was chilly, so I will bring a hat if it's this cold in November.
I'm still freaking out, but I'm excited that this is feeling attainable. Next week is spring break, so I'll make it a point to find an unpaved trail.
Seriously this doll is spooking me out.
This cutie not so much. Where are his pants? I love his chubby thighs.
One thing that is on my mind is dealing with leg cramps. I got them really bad at the Sprint, so I'll get some advice this week.
oh good news! I met someone in Facebook (Griselda) who is walking the course with a group of friends, and we're starting at the same time. Looks like we'll have some buddies on this field trip.
It's almost a month away! AROO! AROO! AROO!
