Day 53, April 22

I was right about yard work adding mileage. Yesterday I started the garden and did 2.8 miles. Today I did 2.3 cleaning house.

Today was Jim's first day at his new job, so I got a good walk in early, a fair bit of walking at work, and a walk to the library and back to the shop at lunchtime.

Got home to find Jim and his dad in the midst of installing the hot water tank, so I worked in the yard for over an hour, hauling branches to the burning pile. It sure all added up!

Today: 13212 steps/ 5.43 miles

And now I'm off for my first hot shower in my house since Monday the 14th! :)

Morning walk with my sisters. We saw the goslings and ducklings and a lot of other birds too as well as a variety of dogs. Then we went on a search for costume stuff for my oldest. I'd walked enough not to bother with a second walk :P.

Usual day, ran 3.5 and walked 1.5 in the evening with Bonnie.

Since whenever I told people about this activity they always ask if I've read "A Walk In The Woods" by Bill Bryson, I read the book on the plane flight to and from Pittsburgh. Not a very inspiring book, but at times very funny. At least now I can jut out my chin and manly say "Yes I've read the book" :)

Total: 5.0
AT: 236

Oddly enough, I started talking with Bonnie about the Appalacian Trail a couple years back because of that book. I agree with you entirely that it wasn't inspiring, but in a weird way it was. I mean, he didn't do everything right, he wasn't some grand expert, and yet he did walk the trail (okay not all of it, but you know what I mean :).)

While it was funny, I was actually surprised at how much was cynical and negative. Boy did that man have a cutting tongue on him. Admittedly this is memory from a couple years ago, but...

The usual 1.6 in the evening. I had a nasty sinus headache so even that was an effort. Hello spring. Why was I tired of winter again? At least snow doesn't have pollen.
