I have been playing a relatively passive GPS game called Geo Realm for a little while that gives you soldiers when you walk. I am not half bad at it and I am now in the top 10. I have conquered all the neighboring castles
I feel like I have the game mechanics down pretty good which reduces the time I need to play. It scratches my gaming itch and I do other things.
I have been super focused on my urban farm and have not been out walking as much as I should, so when my wife asked me to go on a run with her, I felt apprehension and a lot of thoughts went through my head.
I forgot to turn Geo Realm on to get armies, but I am cool with it. The game has performed it’s usefulness. More importantly, I used my fitbit to track my run and I discovered that I am very slow.
If you look at the charts, you will see a 12 minute mile. I basically shaved a few minutes off my 4 mile an hour pace of 15 minute walking miles.
I will tell you, step for step, I can WALK for hours. This exploration into the realm of running nearly killed me as evidenced by the aftermath. My Beloved nearly had to carry me home!
Well, practice makes perfect. Well, at least more better. I will keep at it.
