Animal Sciences Rd

I took a new path today to get a slightly longer walk -- north up Stadium Way to Wilson Rd, then east to the junction of Animal Sciences Rd, and continuing east to Airport Rd, then south to Grimes Way and back along the usual "Airport Rd" route.

It's a nice walk -- a little more "countrified" than the pure Grimes Way round-trip, and also a little more up-and-down, so a little more cardio-rific.  My overall time was 41:07, but I stopped for most of a four-minute phone call from Sharon, so it's not a very good indicator.

Long Time No Post

It's almost a month since my last confe... post.  That's not because I have been lazy.  I've been to the gym 7 times, and done one or another of my walks about an equal number.

Today I did the Airport Road trip.  My times were:

  • 10:49 at Dairy Rd.
  • 16:50 at Airport Rd.
  • 23:13 at Dairy Rd.
  • 33:26 to finish.
That's pretty good stepping for me (personal best appears from this blog to be 33:08 on July 18).  The best part is that I was not especially limited by aerobic condition;  I made the entire uphill without slowing for breath.  That's not to say I didn't get tired and a little wobbly by the top.
