Give yourself permission to call an Uber of Lyft if you’ve overdone your outdoor adventure
August 11, 2019
I gave myself permission to call an Uber if I ever end up completely shagged out during one of my interminable death marches or slow jogs a long time ago. How amazing that I can click a button on my phone and be saved! In the image below, the light blue is my walking and the dark blue is the Ubering.
I can’t believe I need recovery time between super-long walk days

I understand that one needs recovery time between long runs or between heavy workouts, but who thought that I would need recovery days between long walks.
Daily death march might need to be an every-other-daily death march

I could have walked all day yesterday, even in the heat and humidity; today, however, I am pretty spent. I guess I need to listen to my body. I’m a little shagged the day after. It’s OK, I’ll go low and slow.
I’ve replaced treadmill walking with daily humping schlepping rucking with all my weight and all my gear

When your body mass index (BMI) is over 30 and about a third of your body weight is fat (not bones, cartilage, connective tissue, or muscle), then simply the act of moving oneself around and about using only your own two feet is a serious workout. For the morbidly obese, walking is, indeed, working out.

I ventured from my apartment at 7:50 pm and it was cool and overcast and still daytime. So I walked and walked. I basically walked until I hit my 12,000 steps, which was about another 2.71 miles in addition to the casual walking I did for the day; then, I hopped a city bus, 16H, and rode all the way home.

I called my walk for rain. I don’t even think the rain ever ended up storming at all. I was super lame and a super-duper wuss about it. I’ll try again tonight.

Lovely. Cut it a mile short because a 16E bus driver for ART—Arlington Transit—took pity on me while I was wandering around the Pentagon and stopped in the middle of the road and let me on, God bless him. I was done but I would’ve done the rest. But I appreciated the generosity and kindness. I even had a metro card so it was all good!

Sadly, this was surely a spirited walk instead of a run, but I was just getting my body prepared. And I might do a few more of these before I move into my Cliff Young Ultra Shuffle.

Took a Saturday evening to mosey around South Arlington. Grabbed some espresso.
Walking really is the absolutely perfect adaptive exercise for us heavy people!

Everyone tries to tell you that walking is the pathway to losing weight and becoming fit. And it is!
