I enjoy walking every day. Other than keeping me fit, it also is good for my mental state as we patiently wait for spring to arrive. I have never liked jogging, but could play a sport all day without complaint. But jogging just does not float my boat. So, over the years (with my wife’s help) I have taken to walking. Not only is it good for my health, it is good for my golf game.
I generally can pump out 5km (3.12 miles) in 50 minutes. Since my stem cell treatment in August, it has taken about 4 months to build up my endurance to accomplish the above distances. I am proud of my steady improvement, but believe that I need to sustain what I am currently doing with the intent of improving my time to get ready for golf season.
I love to walk the golf course. We have discussed this many times and I really missed that experience last year. I played golf, but it was all from a cart. I do not play as well in a cart, so this off-season is about building my endurance by walking every day.
My goal is to walk every day. I know that life will prevent this, but I have to set a goal that is attainable and sustainable. With just 93 days until opening day, I have 93 walks to complete. It is important build my endurance if I want to have the quick start I need in 2019 to move towards my ultimate goal of being a scratch golfer.
Do you walk to build your endurance?
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
