I really enjoy walking alone, but only in a safe neighborhood.

I do all the time but prefer not to. My mind does wander however, and I get alot of thinking done.

I do like walking alone sometimes, but more often I take a dog or two. Both alone or with a dog it is time to connect with nature and release stress. emoticon emoticon

ALONE! That's my "me" time. Just me and my iPod. Does wonders for my mental health!!! As a busy mom of four, it's about all the alone time I get. : /

I like a walking buddy if walking outside, but on the treadmill, it's my time to get some reading done!

I'd rather walk with my walking buddy, but if that's not possible, my dog and I go alone!

I prefer walking with someone as it keeps me honest about doing my walking and takes my mind off other things so that I can focus on them better afterwards.

I am usually a people person but there are some things I prefer doing alone, walking is one of them.

Sometimes I like walking alone, other times I like walking listening to my music, still other times I like walking with a friend. Recently I have started walking on the tredmill. It is all good.

Listening to music when walking alone is nice but a conversation with someone can be just as good.

it doesn't matter to me either way. I can walk with DH or friends (though most walk much slower than I do) or walk by myself. If I walk with somebody who walks really slow, I'll go out on my own later to get in a more vigorous walk.

I really enjoy a little time alone to just think while I walk. I am around people all day at work, so some quiet time is very relaxing.

I enjoy my morning 3.5-mile walk every morning with my wife, but I also really enjoy the days when I can add another 3.5 miles on my own. I get so much thinking and processing done, which is great because I manage a staff of more than 40 people.

I have a walking partner but he has been missing a lot of days lately. I like it because by myself, I can add in running intervals. He doesn't want to do that.

I love walking alone --- as in with no other people ---- but I like it best while walking with my dog......The solitude provides me time to sort through my thoughts and organize my day and gives me the needed time to come up with a daily plan

I walk indoors to a walking dvd. I don't have to worry about what the weather is doing outside. When I do walk outdoors, my daughter is my walking buddy.

Me and my dog have been come very good walking buddies. It is good for both of us. I like walking with my husband also but he doesn't walk as much as me.
