first day of training

My sister and I signed up for the 2009 Breast Cancer 3-day walk. Today we started training.

We were supposed to walk three miles but only made it two and a half. My excuse is that I had just eaten pizza and then got up for the walk. I hadn't used my inhaler and it was pretty cool out tonight. We wore jackets and breathing the cold air meant I was going to need my inhaler. We stopped in after a mile and a half at my house for a potty break...apparently walking works everything in a downward motion. I put my son to bed and we hit the road again and put in the other mile. I was tired and needed a break and I am now kicking myself for not pushing for the extra mile.

We did find that we are walking at a pace of about 3 miles per hour. We need to be walking at least 2 miles per hour for the 3-day walk.

Tomorrow night it is another three miles.
