I got started with exercise at home, using the vacuum hose to clean the spider, dust and cat hair around the ceilings of my house. Drat that long haired cat Rusty!
Finally got in a walk in warm sunlight! I walked to the library to return a book and sat and read today's newspaper. Then I set out on my brisk walk with a small timer. I walked 5 minutes, ran 1 min, then walked 4 mins and ran 1 min until I was too hot and sweaty to run any more.
I put in a total of 75 minutes by the time I got home. Then I went to Curves for my workout. Along the lake I saw many newly dropped walnuts still with their green covers. I also spotted my first woolly caterpillar! On 4th St there is one Ohio Buckeye tree that is dropping it's beautiful brown nuts. At first I had thought they were chestnuts, and got excited! But no, they're inedible. Such a shame!
Naturally, on my way back home, I stopped at my favorite snack place, the split rail fence with the luscious grapes.
Another good walk! A total of 8636 steps for the walk and 12275 steps and 6.97 miles for the day. WooHoo!
