Training: Week 1
Training has commenced! I began on Monday morning with a 4 mile walk to begin breaking in my boots. 2 miles in, I developed some minor blisters, so I decided to stop after 4 miles, take care of the blisters and try to get out again after work. I managed to get 2 miles in while at work, but could't go out afterwards because of darkness. Today was much better. I got a couple of miles in while I was searching the grounds for my work issued phone that has mysteriously vanished, and then got 3 more in after work. I'm not up to that 10-15/day mark yet, but I'm definitely making progress and the boots are not irritating my feet too much anymore. Tomorrow, I'm going to push it a bit and try to get 8 miles in, in the morning.
