Embarrassing. I mean REALLY embarrassing.
Last night, at our local high school outdoor track, I was passed by an older guy with a walker. I bet he was 75. And then, to add insult to injury, an older lady with socks and Birkenstocks fully lapped me. Me being in shorts, t-shirt and running shoes.
I think I’m getting a bit faster, but my legs only seem to carry my 336 lb ass so fast. Or, err, slow.
I’m focussing on 10,000 steps at the moment. I suspect as the weight goes down and the legs get stronger, I’ll be able to speed up my apparent turtle pace.
