Saturday morning was beautiful. 54 degrees, slight southerly breeze, and plenty of sunshine. It couldn’t have been nicer for our first full 10K practice walk.
We walked. We talked.
10K = 6.2 miles and we finished in 1:35 minutes. Walking and talking. Not pushing, a little sweaty, but not much. Two more weekends to do it again before the big race day. Honestly, I felt like I could have walked another 30 minutes at least!
Things I learned:
1. Don’t drink a ton of water right before going on the walk.
2. Sip don’t slug back the water during the walk.
3. Set the pace at a manageable pace and then enjoy.
4. Layers are going to be important.
