I stayed within my calorie range, although during the week my goal is to really stay right at 1800 calories per day - so I was a little bummed about that. My lunch was much higher in calories than I had thought, and that really got me.
Somebody brought in Salt Water Taffy at work - it is the death of me. Every time I walk by the desk, I grab one. UGH. Thankfully they have all been consumed, so that should help my calorie count!!
1.56 mile walk
33:23 minutes to complete
21:25 min/mile pace
The walk was good - continues to be tough for me though. It just irks me that I am out walking at a pace that, let's face it, is pretty slow for most - and I am huffing and puffing and really having to work at it!
I have to cut 3 minute off this pace in order to be ready for the marathon!! That makes me pretty nervous! When I walk on a treadmill I can definitely get my pace up much faster. Maybe I need to do some work on the treadmill to increase my pace??? I don't know!!
I am having some trouble with my left ankle. I completed my own diagnosis on Webmd (boy, I'm sure doctors just love to hear that) and am pretty sure that I have Achilles tendinopathy. Before and after the walk I made sure to stretch and have been taking Ibuprofen. I also iced it when I got home. I really need it to stop hurting. It is definitely slowing me down!! It is so frustrating that when I decide to get going and get in shape, I have something stupid like this flare up!!! BOO!
