Avon Walk Weekly Update

It’s time again for my weekly Avon Walk update. If you’d like to see my full training calendar, check it out here or on the left sidebar of my blog.

Thoughts on training: This was a slow week of training due to the rain. I know I should be training in it, but I just can’t walk around in wet socks and shoes.

Along those lines, I’ve decided that instead of bringing two pairs of tennis shoes, I’m going to bring my tennis shoes and a pair of sandals. That way if it rains, I can wear the sandals or if my toes start cramping up, I can throw on my sandals. And they won’t be very big or heavy to carry in my bag.

My friend A and I also decided that we’re not going to tent this time around. It was going to be a big hassle to bring camping gear plus stuff for a week long vacation halfway across the country. On top of that, she has a business trip starting the Monday after the walk, so she’s going to have a lot more stuff to bring than I will. By not tenting, we also don’t have to check out of the hotel early Saturday morning and back in Sunday. Plus we’ll be able to take a real shower and sleep in a real bed Saturday night. I’m pretty happy with our decision.

Thoughts on fundraising: I got a huge boost this week from some GE matching gifts, so I have surpassed my original goal of $2,500 this week!

Miles walked last week: 0
Minutes doing cardio: 0
Minutes doing cross training or weight lifting: 0
Total $$ raised: $2,764
