4 miles at a snail's pace
Yes, I know they make the sleek sexy ones that are even sized nicely for women's wrists, but I've grown fond of the clunkier version and its features, and that's what I wanted, and I'm actually quite happy with it!
I got it charged up last night hoping to be able to test it out out this morning. This morning, for the first time since I banged my toe, I put on a real pair of shoes (albeit a pair that's a bit large on me) and met a friend for a walk.
Perhaps calling it a "walk" is a bit generous. Between my knee and my toe, it was more like a hobble or shuffle. I managed 4 miles, which is good. But it took an hour and twenty minutes, which is not so good. That's a 20min/mi pace!
Sadly, this is probably the fastest I've actually been able to move for over a week. It's clear that I have a *long* way to go even just to get to a respectable walking pace. On the bright side, I know that I need to start back somewhere, and this definitely counts as a start.
