This was day 37 out of 56 of Hal Higdon’s 10K Walking Program which called for a 55 minute walk at a comfortable pace. Unfortunately, due to both my hamstring as well as suspected metatarsalgia issues, I took today off.
In fact, I will be taking the rest of the week off any kind of physical activity including walking and weightlifting and most likely return Monday, January 21. When I return I will not immediately resume walking outdoors. I can tell my foot needs more rest than that. Instead I will use my gym’s elliptical trainer and treadmill so I can stop the moment I feel any kind of hot spots arise.
