9 Miles and Counting!

You guessed it yesterday was 9 miles down! A group of friends and I made it all the way around (need to work on the time) and it was hard work. The last 2 miles I had to have Dee talk me through it because once again that darn ankle is rearing its ugly head. I started off ok but my ankle was giving out right at 3 miles so I just kept going hoping it would stretch out but in the end it is so sore today. I am just going to have to baby it the rest of the week and not over do it.

Next week is 10 miles (WOW) and I am hoping I can do it without "whining" (ha)! Thanks to everyone who came out and walked it was a great time and well worth it.

This week will shape up to be fun Monday off, Tuesday trying something new call bodyjam (more on that later), Wednesday is Zumba and probably try Pilates with Dee, Thursday not sure yet and Friday off.

Hope everyone has a great Monday!
