Another 0.62 Miles

I am feeling stronger as I get used to this distance. I go walking after dark when it is cooler, and I'm not as tired when I finish the distance as I used to be.

When I was younger and ran longer distances, 5 miles was considered a rest distance. Now, I'm older and 0.62 miles is all I can do.

0.62 Miles

I went around the block again for another 0.62 miles. I was out a little earlier, while it was dusk but still light. I didn't do any jogging during my walk. Judy was gone shopping during my walk.

Did another 0.62 miles

Judy and I went walking during dusk. We walked around the block, which is 0.62 miles. We stopped for about 5 minutes to talk with a neighbor. I didn't have anything or anybody to touch while we were stopped, and I had a hard time keeping my balance. I didn't do any jogging during my walk.

Did 0.62 miles again but was tired during the jog/walk

Judy and I went around the block again, but I was tired during the walk and took several standing rest stops of about 20 seconds each. I jogged a bit during the walk. I think I will stay in the neighborhood until I reach 1 mile or greater, and then I will go to the river. I like the Jordan River Parkway, because it is away from street traffic and the exhaust fumes that are emitted by vehicles.

I did 0.62 miles today & revised my previous numbers

I was out this morning, and I used my GPS to get a better measurement of the distance. I discovered that I needed to double all of my totals, because I was using the numbers from my poor memory, and the numbers turned out to be just the distance out, which is 1/2 of the total (I'm going out/back). So, I have modified the numbers for the past several weeks.

I did a a bit of jogging during the last half of my outing: 1 minute of jogging followed by several minutes of walking.

Did at least 0.3 miles walking

My wife and I (and our children and grandchildren) visited the new LDS City Center Temple in Provo, Utah. We, afterwards, went outside to meet some friends, and we walked at least 0.3 miles, between being inside the temple and outside the temple.
