Shoulder continues to be sore, so I just did the TM and some weights for my knees & thighs.

After completing my routine, I ran a Fast 1 km and completed it in 7:46 minutes. 10 secs off the last time.

21 sep 500 mtrs
22 sep 600 mtrs
25 sep 660 mtrs
26 sep 700 mtrs
29 sep 750 mtrs
01 oct 825 mtrs

Today 970 mtrs (1200 steps). Why didn’t I complete 1 km?
I wasn’t looking at the meter. My concentration was on counting the steps.
It is so sultry here, that I need 2 T shirts for my exercise & they are both dripping by the time I finish. I’m that sweaty.

8021 steps yesterday.  Lots going on right now with workers all over the house.  They are replacing all of the ducting for the heat/AC system for an improved air flow.  I had a lot of obstacles to get around.
