I mentioned that I had something planned for Sunday and the plan was followed to a "T". Well, maybe not even to a "T" because I actually added to it. But the plan was followed close enough for me to say that it worked out as planned. I had taken a couple of days off … Continue reading Day 196… I Walked 20 Miles
I've been putting a lot of stress on my body lately. Lots of running, walking and other exercises, eating at a deficit and just abusing it in a good way. So this weekend I decided to take it easy.
