Still movin'

Today I did my functional exercises (stretches and crunches) as soon as I got up, which was somewhat later than I planned but still allowed plenty of time for breakfast and relaxation before walking to my bass lesson. I made a conscious effort to walk at a faster pace, and made a goal of covering the distance (approx. 1.8 miles) in 30 minutes instead of the 35 or so I usually take. And I did it! Going back took a couple of minutes longer though, as more of the return walk was uphill.

I can't walk as quickly as I'd like while carrying the bass and my music, so I'm not sure if I should count this hour in my weekly aerobic minutes. I know I wasn't exercising at the 70-80% level of exertion I aim for when I'm running. But I was definitely walking faster and more purposefully than in the past. We'll see if I'm able to keep up the pace once it starts raining again...
