Join me on my morning walk.
That's the corner of my house that you can see on the right of the photo.
The brick pillars are the gate that I usually come through.
This is quite a hill to warm up on. It's also a little scary for me on the way back because it wasn't graded before and last year I slipped on loose gravel and fell, breaking my coccyx in the process.
At the crest of the first hill. Yet another hill to climb. Whew!
My first landmark. When my teenage daughters lived here 2 years ago, they would drag me out of the house to go walking and this is as far as I would get. Walking to this termite mound would take 15 minutes. Today I did it in 12.
Usually I walk about 30 minutes earlier in the day.
I love the way the morning sun looks at this time of day.
Here is my second landmark. When I first started walk/running, I took Tom's GPS
toy gadget very important navigation tool, and it told me this was 2.5 km from the house. It was mistaken. It was only 2.2. Bummer!
Here is my new turnaround point. 2.5 km. (1.55 miles), baby!
I'm nearly home! Just have to get down that treacherous hill.
Home again. 5 K (3.1 mi.) done!
It took me 56 minutes today because of all the photos.
Normally it's around 50-52 minutes but eventually I hope to get that time to 30 minutes.
And....guess what guys and gals......I've lost 7 pounds now! Yeah!!
