Well, I learned another valuable lesson in this whole exercise saga today. That lesson is that walking at 7 pm after a rain is seriously more difficult than walking at 2:30 pm in the sunshine. Holy humidity, Batman! I was absolutely drenched when I got back inside.
So today wasn't nearly as good as Monday, not as long or as quick, but I'm happy with it because it was miserable out there. And hey, I burned just as many calories!
The bad days with my pain make me that much more grateful for the manageably good days.
