Two Birds, One Stone

I had two errands that needed to get done today. I had a prescription to pick up from the pharmacy, and I wanted to buy some tomatoes for my salad. I mentioned earlier that I was planning a shorter walk, so I decided to combine the two. I planned out a route that had both my pharmacy and a supermarket along it, and set out.

One thing I should mention is that I never realized what a difference a pair of socks can make. I put on a pair of gym socks that I dug up (and which looked like they had never been worn), and put them on. I then went to put on my new Adidas running shoes, only to realize that they do not fit! Yes, I have worn them comfortably a couple of times already, so either my feet are very badly swollen, or the socks make that much of a difference. Rather than switching out the socks, I picked a different pair of shoes that I know are a bit looser.

  • Distance: 6.5 km (8.0 km)
  • Duration: 1:10:13 (1:26:40 minutes)
  • Average Pace (Min/km): 10:47 (10:50)
  • Steps: 8k (9.8k)
  • Calories burned: 375 (460)
  • Elevation gain: 19m (29.8)
  • Average cadence (steps per minute): 114 (114)

I did find the walking/biking trail I was looking for, and it was nice to have a couple of kilometres without the hustle and bustle of traffic around me.

Okay… now it is time for me to take a really nice shower, and then start preparing my lunch
