The New Fit Me – Running 5 Kms

Day 2

I started the day with a walk.  I had a companion, and we had things to do, thus it was not long a long walk.  But the air was humid, so I was just as sweaty as I had been the day before on my awesome run.  It wasn’t long, but I was proud of myself because my walking companion did attempt to talk me out of it.  Don’t be too harsh on him; we do have a very busy day and actually appointments to keep.

After all our appointments, we headed to the local zoo.  I think we were the only older people there.  Plenty of mums, dads and little children in strollers which made for a noisy experience.  Turns out five-year-olds get very excited when they see otters swimming.  I get the kid’s point but screaming loudly wasn’t really required.  I also saw condors—never seen them before—and some quite exotic other birds.  My favourites were the kookaburra, cockatoo and the Eclectus parrots.  I haven’t seen those lot for months now.  Walking out of the zoo to the sound of a kookaburra was pretty special.

I am not sure how long we walked there.  Some parts were faster, others were slower. What I do know is that I was very tired by the end of it.  Given I have been regularly walking five kilometres without a care, we must have walked at least that far, making a total distance of seven kilometres today (about 4.5 miles, but I did that calculation in my head, by estimation, so about is the keyword!).
