I went walking today on the track at Morgan Park High School.  Even though it was cold, walking in the fresh air felt so much better than sweating it out on some treadmill in a gym. 

My son burst my bubble because I thought my four laps around the track was two miles,  it felt like it.  But he said that was only one mile! Dang. I thought I was doing something. And he told me that I was supposed to walk as fast as I could. So today I did a mile and a half in 35 minutes. I felt it too!  Yup, I know I have a long way to go. But I am going….

So I will periodically post my updates. I am looking to make it up to two miles within a week or so, and improve my time. I am indeed a work in progress.
