Another too-long break in my posting schedule. I didn't walk on Saturday or Sunday. It was mainly a combination of being busy, lazy, and my feet were super swollen. All day. This was particularly vexing because my shoes barely fit and there wasn't any good reason for it that I could see. Jaime asked me if I might be retaining water, and I completely dismissed that...but considering I also "gained" 9 pounds in like 2 days, I'm going to have to think that was indeed the case. 

So I went to the park yesterday, determined to make up for the lack of walking over the weekend. I barely walked at all before my legs got really tight, and I even stretched before I started. I managed the mile but it was excruciating. I could barely make it back to the car. From my ankles all the way up to my thighs. I wonder if that's related to the other PMS symptoms I was experiencing. Due to a very uneven cycle and basic weirdness with my bodies, I'm nearly thirty and I barely know what PMS symptoms to expect, much less how they impact things like walking. 

I didn't measure today's walk, but I did go for a much more pleasant stroll in the park with Lindy. She's been pretty sick, so I didn't suggest we do the full mile, but I'd guess we walked at least 1/2 mile. It was a beautiful day, warm and really wonderfully spring. I'm looking forward to more afternoons in the park. 

I'd like to go to Sugarhouse tomorrow for my walk. There are more hills and it's more of a work out, but given the size and the number of hills, I won't feel too bad about getting a slow time. Soon it'll be warm enough to head up to Red Butte for my first stroll through the gardens.
