It’s the first virtual race I’ve completed in three years, and I’m very proud of myself! Now, I could’ve cheated. They don’t check on your entries or anything, this is taken as a trust thing, but I didn’t. I did think about it for a moment today as I was making myself walk the last quarter of the mile goal I needed to finish the race, but I didn’t want to end it that way. I’d be upset with myself for it.
You’re probally thinking I was being a wuss for not wanting to walk that last bit, but it took me all day to get that far. I walk nearly two miles a day when I work but on my days off, I’m very sedentary. I spend most of my time listening to music and writing, or crocheting and watching television. I don’t do a great deal of walking.
Since I began the race almost two weeks ago, I make myself walk on my days off – even if it’s just around my apartment. Tonight, I walked a complete tour around the edges of my living room and kitchen and down the short hall to my front door and back, going round and round until I got the distance I was shooting for.
My goal is one mile, and I’m going to keep hitting it even though I won’t be starting another race until the second week of February when I have the money for the next race I want to start. It costs about $25 American, and it’s around 23 miles long. I might choose another, but this one is the one I’m looking at right now.
Anyway, if I can do it, you can too!! Join me on Yes!Fit and let’s race!!!
See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!
