Hey guys just wanted to drop a few lines describing my most recent walking escapade. Yesterday I was off of work and shortly after waking out of the blue, I just wanted to test my endurance. I am still considerably overweight so walking is my primary form of exercise at the moment and very very light jogging. So, I decide to walk as far as possible and have my girlfriend come and pick me up when I give out. Not the best idea I have come up with so far. At mile 3 I was fine and started to slowly tire. At mile 6 I stopped at a convenient store to get more water and fruit, but there was no fruit, so I got a delmonte fruit can with mostly pure fruit but some preservative junk in it too...and a bottle of orange juice. I was super tired before that stop but felt like I had a second wind so I kept going after the short water/juice/fruit break. At mile 8 I stopped at another convenient store and got more water and 2 bananas. I failed to mention that my walking is extremely brisk and on the verge of jogging and that the sun was incredibly hot...around 98 degrees and it was high noonish. I was pouring sweat and very tired but wanted to continue to my 'ghost' destination of a landmark I had in mind which was approximately 15 miles from my house. At the 9th mile I was totally give out and my legs felt like they would not work any longer. My energy was gone and I had nothing left so I called my gf and had her pick me up...I had to go immediately to sleep and was super burnt from the sun (but it didn't hurt and still doesn't) Total miles walked was 10 miles in 4 hours and my weight at the moment is 273lbs.
