|HealthCare Journey for Multiple Sclerosis||
Today was day one for me timing my walks to the park and back. I used a GPS jogging app to help me keep track of the data. The GPS was pretty spot on as you can see my zigs and zags along the way! My first timed walk went pretty smoothly, there were no trips or real balance scares which was nice.
So here are the cold hard numbers, I went .31 miles in a blistering 8:06 putting me on pace to finish a mile in 26:01. This left me a little winded but not too badly, it was much easier not chasing a speedy 2 year old the whole way! It is my goal to walk this route at least 4 times a week with the end goal of jogging instead of walking. But for now I will set my first walking goal to shave off a few seconds and come in under 8 minutes. Shouldn’t be too tough right?
