I feel like I should use the word ‘revisited or rediscovered here. When we first moved here , we went to the park and walked the lake a lot. But we just haven’t been in a while. We live to near the creek trail – which is more fun to walk – and we walk a lot in the neighborhood. Lake Elizabeth is more of a city park, more domesticated , than the trail . One of those places with too many ducks and too many geese. But it is two miles ( maybe a little more ) around the lake on a smooth paved trail , away from traffic and very safe. So many people walk around the lake every day. On Wednesday I walked around th e lake twice – which meant 4 days on my feet and 10 miles ( I have no idea what kind of mileage we did on sunday – but it was a good 3/4 hours on our feet.) and I walked that 4 miles in about an hour. I did not walk on Thursday . This morning I walked around the lake once. at a leisurely pace — an hour for one circuit. very slow – but I have hit 12 miles for the week.
A few things I am looking forward to :
1) My body stopping complaining when I walk three days in a row
2) hitting 20 miles in a week
3) the chance spend one day walking slowly , eating , and reading around the lake.
