I am on vacation next week, and started my new routine this morning. I hit Green Lake early and did two laps, or 5.6 miles. I will go back later this evening and do at least one more lap. It's cooler now than the 96-98 degree temperatures earlier this week, though still sunny and in the 80s.
Things to remember when walking -- knees face forward... look up and out, not down...breath deeply and from the lower abdomen... keep buttocks tucked under...and send strong chi to my friend Jenny, whose example I follow in making this walk.
