The weekend of 68,476 steps

Posted: Updated:

If you're following the training schedule that comes from the 3Day.org folks, then this weekend was a big one for you. Possibly the biggest. An 18 mile walk on Saturday, and a 15 mile walk on Sunday. Yikes!

For me, between the two days I ended up walking in excess of 68,000 steps. . .for a total of 33.5 miles. Of course, this is nothing compared to what's coming up in less than four weeks. But I don't think I've ever walked 68,000 steps in a weekend before. Do the feet hurt? Of course. (Did I have better things to do with my time than spend 13 hours of daylight walking!? You know it!) And I've got a small but persistent blister that keeps rearing its ugly head. It's nothing compared to what those who have cancer are going through, and this is why we put up with the lost weekends and minor aches and pains. Having put this long walk weekend behind me, I'm excited about having passed this milestone - and am sure looking forward to November 19th.
