WALK!!!!

I admit, I have been reluctant to wake up in the morning for several good morning for my runs for the past 15 months of my "serious" running life.....i decided to be discipline to wake up at 6.15am every morning An idea suddenly struck me when i was resting during my badminton session on tuesday nite with my colleagues.....i was walking around the court to recover when i suddenly thought "Y not i do brisk walk in the morning for my rest day?"...maybe i can improve my walk speed which will helps in my next marathon or ultramarathon.... so i decided to tried it this morning...i did a faster than normal walk round the reservoir to see how fast i can complete the 4.3km....my normal run round the reservoir takes about 22-24min.....there i am....walking while people are running (normally i run and see people walking).......and I finished in 41min 59sec...don't know if this is good or not....at least is a first gauge of my walking speed....maybe if i do it consistently, i can finish within 40min....so with improved running and walking speed, i should be able to finish my marathon faster and more comfortably...... Cheers.......
