Let’s train for the walk!

The walk is just around the corner, but it’s still far enough away for you to get ready for it.  I’ve got my challenges, so it’s not as easy as it used to be, so I’ve got to train for it.  It’s hard, both because of my inability to easily do what I’d consider a minor distance, and the fact that I’ve got to focus my attention on what I’m doing, so that mistakes don’t happen.   I learned that the road around the house is sloped on the sides, so much so that my walking-quality was affected.   That’s another element of my injury that’s largely unknown.  It’s that unless where I’m walking is dead-flat, my walk-quality is affected.  Not significantly, but my right-foot heel will scuff the ground every step.  That’s another element that I’m required to pay attention to, which is to ensure that I lift my leg to ensure that it doesn’t hit the ground.

And, to ensure that I’m hydrated, I stopped for water!  Thanks to the awesome generosity of Tim Horton’s, there will be 300 water bottles at the walk!  Way cool!
