So, my 3 mile, 30 minute morning walking route? It’s really only 2.14 miles and takes me 34 minutes to walk it. How do I know this? I downloaded an app to my iPhone called RunKeeper (and NO, I NEVER run but it tracks lots of activities in the free version) and walked my usual route.
I had originally tracked the route I walk on my car’s odometer, but there was an error in there somewhere, apparently.
So, I had to keep going past my usual ending point to get a 3 mile walk in. The thing is, I signed up for a walking challenge at work and have committed to walking 10 miles per week. I thought it would be easy enough to manage, if i just resumed my now long abandoned morning routine of
- Putting child on school bus
but hey, guess what? My half hour morning walk morphed into a 51.47 minute walk.
May I just take a moment to say “UGH”.
