Almost finished

Just about done with the Orient Express again. I took a lot longer this time around than the previous trips, about 7 weeks or so. I think that maybe I'm getting burned out on walking even though I know that I'll need to be exercising the rest of my life. I think the key to keep going may be getting exercise integrated into everyday life as opposed to some extraordinary activity. Since the beginning of the Orient Express back in April, I've logged over 1800 miles and the majority of that has been actual walking as opposed to using the conversion charts. Just thinking about walking that distance is making me feel very tired. Or maybe it's from getting up before 5am the last couple of days. There is just enough time left in the program to try for one more trip but I don't think I'm up to the challenge. Either way, I feel exhausted...


  1. Richard,
    You're not supposed to kill yourself, walking for health! It sounds like you're burning out. Listen to your body. The point is staying active.

    Your friend,

  2. Unfortunately, I feel a need to keep pushing myself to see if I can do it. I'm thinking that I really don't enjoy summers and have been much less active than I was last winter. Too hot...
