The Shamrock Shuffle
After playing football just once since December the chances of me getting fit enough to run an 8k without collapsing were sadly small so I joined up with the Mum's, old boys and lardies for today's 5k 'fitness walk' on the lakeshore of Chicago early this morning. In fact, that's unfair it wasn't just lardies and old grannies at all, there was a nice mix of people taking part in the walk in beautiful sunny weather earlier this morning, whilst other fitter folk ran the 8k downtown.
54 minutes to walk 3.1 miles, not bad, particularly as that included regular stops for taking photos and a minute or so to get over the start line. And then I walked the 2.3 miles home, which was after walking to the start in the morning. Not a bad day's exercise.
said that 30,000 people either ran or walked today's Shamrock Shuffle
and it was a very nice way to spend the morning. Meanwhile outdoor 'soccer' starts this Thursday, although I'm already bloody committed to a Bulls
game which is a pain in the arse.
