I’m to the point with my walking where any walk shorter than 8 or 9 miles feels like absolutely nothing and, if that’s all the distance I go in a day, it feels like I’m slacking off and not walking enough.
Which is a pretty stupid thing to think, since before we moved to the new place I was walking about 7 miles a day (four times a week at least) going to/from campus. Now I’m going 10+ about four days a week, plus at least 5 or so the remaining 3 days of the week. So I’m obviously not walking less, but it really feels like I am. It’s like this:
- 15+ miles: Good walk!
- 12 – 15 miles: Decent walk!
- 9 – 12: Yeah, sure, okay.
- 8 – 9: At least you moved a little. Sort of.
- < 7: GO DIE IN A CORNER YOU LAZY CRAP
I’m sure my mind will return to realistically looking at mileage once next semester starts up and I’m actually busy (especially with thesis stuff), but right now, this is how it is.
At least I’m putting good mileage on these shoes!
