Today I walked 18 miles on my own. I missed the regular Roadrunner practice because we volunteered for the Film Independent Spirit Awards. It was our seventh year volunteering - always a fun and exciting time. Plus, we can walk to the awards, since they are held in a tent on the beach just down the street here in Santa Monica!
Today’s walk was tough. Jen suggested that it was because I was tired from volunteering, and I think she is right. Walking takes so much time - I really think it’s harder to walk those long distances than it is to run them. I was stiff and sore when I got back, but some stretches helped. The blister situation was greatly improved by some separators, like little wraps on put on the toes that have been bothering me. They were fine today, but the bottoms of my feet are really tender.
I can start running again a week from Thursday. Literally counting down the days!
