Completed 6 miles walk on the basketball court in i hour 13 minutes and 49 seconds at 7:50 AM. Average walk times were: 12 minutes and 4 seconds per mile (milla) or 2 minutes and 2 second per lap (vuelta). Walking on the basketball court is faster because of the walking conditions, I don’t have to be wary of puddles, muddy path, rocks and pebbles on the trail. The walk started out dark but the basketball court was dry and the temperature was cool in the 50’s. The sky was overcast but the moon was visible when it was not shielded by the cloud. The dawn sky consist of different shades of grey clouds. The grey clouds grew lighter as the morning progressed. The wind was blowing and scatted the fog. Several rabbits came close to the basketball court but scampered away as I approached them. Finished walking at 7:50 AM. Stretched and split stretched on the basketball court until 8:30 AM. Cleaned the computer room.

She walked 7900 steps, 14.5 inches step length and her symmetry was down to 38%, that was impressive. That’s was a good improvement for her gait. They are having dinner with Kein at home tonight.
