Ok....sooo... Had my first training walk outside at a brisk pace for about 5 miles.
I'm an avid walker in great walking shape,or so I thought. I walk on the treadmill usually everyday about 3.5-5 miles a day at about 3.8-4/mph on a 7 incline. I walk my kids to school 1 mile both ways nearly everyday it's not raining. I usually feel fine no sore legs no huffing up and down hills. But BOY OH BOY was I wrong. There must be a BIG difference in walking outside and walking on the treadmill. Because Sunday my legs were VERY sore and still sore some today!
I guess this means I really need some OUTSIDE walk training too. But today will just have to settle for the treadmill. I am just too busy to leave the house today. At least I learned this early on.
Also learned I needed to get a new pair of walking shoes to break in now. Any excuse to go shopping!
