Slow Miles…But Still Miles

My mileage accumulation has been slow, but at least it's still happening. And I did in fact pass the 300 mile mark on the virtual walk site.I also passed through the town of Buchanan, VA which is in Botetourt county. I am now making my way towards Troutville, VA which is about 16.75 miles from where I am currently on the walk. Since I’m going 1/2 mile on the elliptical for the time being, it’s going to take a while to get there. But, I will get there.

Good thing about going 1/2 mile at a time, is there are more pictures to share! Here are quite a few pictures I’ve been saving since I’ve been back on the elliptical.

I’m taking frequent days off. My muscles in my legs and back are still adjusting, and I think it’s a smart idea to not push too hard yet. It’s tough for me to not get on every day, but I know my back and legs will thank me for it. Just the other day, I did my half mile, and at the end, my legs felt like Jell-O and I could hardly stand up because they were so fatigued. It will get easier, I just need to be patient.
