January 29 – The Stretch from 5K to Breakfast

My bad decision was overcompensating for the number of calories burned during my 5K.

Stretch it outThey say it isn’t good to go to the grocery store when you’re hungry, but I think it might be worse to walk your 5K when you’re hungry. The problem, for me anyway, is that being hungry on a 5K can lead to poor decisions, just like it does at the grocery store. My bad decision was overcompensating for the number of calories burned during my 5K.

But that’s a story for another day.

Today, Melissa and I took it a little easy because it was chilly and windy, so no real timing. Plus, my phone was at home being updated to what I’m sure will be its swan song. It seems that Apple updates older devices with a suicide bug that basically renders them unusable. My iPhone 5 still works and I’d like to keep it a bit longer.

Our 5K was probably closer to a four-mile walk today because I forgot my wallet and we’d walked about a quarter of a mile before Melissa asked me if I had it with me. Thank goodness we didn’t walk all the way to Village Inn before realizing it.

Her feet were really sore today, even after a decent massaging of them last night. Guess who did that? Stretching would have helped some with that pain. To experience that kind of pain after 28 days of 5Ks means that either she has an injury or that she’s not stretching enough. My guess is the latter.

Keep up your good work and let us know how you’re doing.
