Broke My Walking Speed Record Again

The Wrightsville Beach Loop is my regular walking location.  It's 2.25 miles around with lots of great views.  I normally do two loops nonstop - thats walking not running.

Over time, I have gradually increased my speed and endurance levels and now find myself in a race every time I hit the loop.  Not a race against the other walkers, but against myself - actually against the clock.

Though my top level pace is 4.5 mph, I don't normally start out that fast, and have to work up to it.  My personal best time to date has been 1 hour and 5 minutes for two laps (4.5 miles total).  Well today, I ramped up my speed pretty was able to shave two minutes off for a new personal best time of 1 hour and 3 minutes for the 4.5 mile walk.

Don't forget, it was only a couple of years ago that 15 minutes of walking at 3 mph left me breathless.
