The tires on my bicycle are flat since the day before my vacation started. This is why I’ve been walking to work after we came back from vacation. It is nothing new to my body, though. Last winter, I was unable to ride my bike due to heavy snowfalls. Which was why I walked every day to and from work, which I enjoyed immensely.
Several days ago, I started recording the time I spend walking to work. (The time I spend walking home from work is very inaccurate, mostly depending on what mood I am in, what I’ve had for lunch or which shoes I wear.) I usually spend between fifteen and twenty minutes. Yesterday, though, I beat my personal record “by five minutes” and landed on 10:38.8. (Proof.)
Today, I tried to repeat it and spend the whole of 15:19.3 walking, which left me begging for more. Something went wrong and I need to fix it. For the next month I pledge to measure my steps and breaths to get to the truth of the matter – does it take ten or fifteen minutes for me to walk to work?
