Cold and rain are not a good combination for my body . There is something about it that bothers my bones BUT dressing appropriately does minimize the negative impact.
Starting the fifth week of my body having what has been a very nasty virus, I decided not to bundle up and walk on Saturday. I remained home.
Finally feeling as though my body is on the mend I am glad I made that decision. If it had been sunny I think I could have finally joined in.
What is comforting to know is that I can , after five weeks, just walk right back in .
I am well aware that after weeks of not doing 10 Ks during the weekend and 10,000 daily steps during the week, my body will protest. At least I think it will. I do not think – in the 15 years I have been walking the distance – I have missed so may scheduled walks.
Within the four full weeks of the illness it has been comforting for me to know that there are TPWs out there walking the distance. If I let my mind wander, I can hear the chatter and the soft sound of the sneakers hitting the ground.
I hear that five TPWs recently walked the distance in the cold and rain .
I want to thank you for keeping the torch burning.
