Trip to the Park – March 15, 2009 – 2 miles round trip
It started out as a Sunday stroll and ended up as a trip to the park – we decided to take advantage of the decent weather as a family. L got to play at the park for the very first time. It was cute to watch her learn how to walk on the uneven ground/sand.

Target – March 16, 2009 – 1.4 miles one way
I somehow neglected to notice that we were just about out of dishwasher detergent. After briefly considering having Hubby pick some up on his way home I decided to head out with the kids. One the way there we made it in 30 minutes which is most definitely a family best. One the way home it was probably more like 40 minutes – I’m still struggling with a shoe issue.

The Library – March 17, 2009 – 2.75 miles one way

We decided to take advantage of the fantastic weather for our weekly library trip (and another slightly different route). Hubby worked boku overtime hours the day before so it was just me and the kids for this trip. I was a little bit worried about doing the whole trip myself, but I’m happy to report that we made it. I’m still having foot/shoe issues. I thought new shoes/insoles would fix it, but now I’m thinking maybe I need to investigate other options. It seems once I hit about the 3 mile mark is when it’s worse (and from there on). I end up having to slow way down because every step hurts – I’m not the least bit winded and would like to walk a bit quicker, but due to the pain back off. Podiatrist maybe?

Miles walked to date: 38.9
