So I was taking my big walk this morning (4.2 miles) and it was HARD! Everything hurt ... my foot bones, ankles, knees ... they all hurt. Really. This was ridiculous. I had just walked nearly 5 miles the weekend before, and they didn't hurt this much during that hike. Whatever ... I dragged my fat hiney onward. About 3/4 of the way through, I had a revelation!
Of course I hurt! I was lugging the equivalent of two, 30-pound sacks of flour around with me for over 4 miles! Two of them! Have a skinny person try and do that.
It helped. Still hurt, but I just told myself that it's going to be SO easy when that weight is off my feet.
