Finished walking 6 miles at 7:50 AM in 1 hour 16 minutes and 42 seconds. Average walking times were: 12 minutes 14 seconds per mile (milla) or 2 minutes 3 seconds per lap (vuelta). Walking time was good because of the warm weather. The morning started out with the dawn sky with overcast clouds and foggy. The sun rise was blocked by the clouds, it made its appearance on and off. At the end of the walk it was high enough and it burnt off the fog. Stretched at the basketball court in partial sunlight. The stretch was good and the split stretch was okay. Rolled with foam core roller to relieve my sore legs. Finished stretching at 8:40 AM. Replied to Doris email form yesterday. had some donuts and an apple for snacks. Showered at 9:20 AM.
