Moreno Valley - 14.81km Adventure Walk
11May09 730am at Moreno Valley LA, still wanting to have a much lengthy continuous sleep after the travel from Manila, I was determined to logged my first work-out speed walk locally in preparation to my scheduled USATF Masters 15k Racewalk event which is barely six days away.
This is the first time I am visiting my daughter in her new place at Moreno Valley so I am unfamiliar with the local streets and traffic. With no definite route in mind to take, I told myself to just run 6km away from the house and 6km back to the house and that should give a good 12km work-out. Later I found out that this was simply said than done.
I started taking picture only after hitting the halfway distance on my return home given the confidence of knowing which route to take. Picture are presented herewith on a slide presentation;

I completed 14.81km at a speed of 7.21km/hr and pace of 8.32min/km for a total time of 02h03m17s. I exceeded my planned 12km distance by 2.81km which was due to my getting lost on my way back home.
