Trying to Maintain

Just trying to keep my endurance till I can get back to running on Monday. So today my goal was to walk as fast as I could for 1 hour. Actually surprised me how fast it went by, even on the treadmill. Ended up doing a total of 4.5 miles. Jacked up the incline on the treadmill to get my heart rate up and with the fast turnover, it was pretty easy to sit close to 160bpm. Wish I had done more of the walking thing back during the summer. The good thing is it has no impact on my plantar facittis at all. Hope doing this helps, if not I am doomed next weekend at the 1/2.

Walking stats for the day:
4.5 miles - 1:04:16
Splits
1-14:16
2-14:12
3-14:06
4-13:44
hit 4.3m in 1:00:00

Does this mean I'm goal oriented since I'm tracking walking pace?? Probably.

Oh, I like goal-oriented! I'm going to have to start using that instead of obsessive (or compulsive). You don't mind if I borrow that do you?

Fast walking is actually tougher for me than running. I don't do it often so the gait is very unnatural for me. But it sounds to me like you were able to do it well so I'm sure it has helped maintain fitness. And yes, I'd say you're goal oriented :-)
