It is the second week of November and my one month challenge of walking/jogging 100 kms to raise money for sick children continued this week.
This week I did 26kms. Monday began with a 5 km walk, on Tuesday and Wednesday I did a 6 km walk/jog. On Thursday I walked for 5 kms. I had planned to finish Friday with another 6 km, but I woke up with a sore shin and exhaustion and took the day to recover, I think because on Wednesday I did a hill, and Thursday I did couple of stairs. On Saturday I was okay and did a slow jog of 4 kms. I rested om Sunday.
So in the month of November, I have completed 49 kilometers out of the 100 kms.
Funny thing happened yesterday when I walked home after my jog. A lady at the bus stop asked me for the time and I gave her my kilometer number.
What have I learnt this week
Recovery is important when you feel sore or exhausted
Stretching out is good on recovery days
I did more kilometers this week than last week
I still feel good not exhausted or burned out
Always give someone the correct time or double check your watch
