So my car packed up and I decided that while it is in repair, I try walking home from my office. It was 10km and took my short legs about 2.5 hrs to walk it. I was not that tired, although I now have some pain front of my chin, not sure what that part is called, just above my ankle. My knee is also radiating a VERY SLIGHT pain. Never walked that long at one go before. It was mostly on sidewalk, so the ground is paved concrete, not sure if that is the reason but wondering if my legs will adjust eventually, if there are special shoes I should get (just using my light nike sneakers) or if there are any walking tips I should incorporate. I would like to do this kind of long walk at least twice a (five day) week because it was actually AMAZING how I felt afterwards.
No announcement yet.
