For me, during the week I've GOT to get my exercise in first thing in the morning as I just can NEVER get around to it later. Either I cannot find the time or the day just wears me down to a point where I cannot find the energy to workout later. My energy levels tend to wane around 5 pm.
During the weekend, however I can get going later sometimes...a trick I like to use at times when I've gone someplace is to walk back from that place and catch up with others later. I did that this weekend on Saturday. We met with my parents at a restaurant downtown Kalamazoo (Food Dance, a wonderful restaurant featuring natural, locally grown foods!).
Beforehand I scoped out distances and found that my son's apartment was only 4 miles away. So afterward I arranged with my wife and son to meet them back at the apartment so I could walk back. Perfecto! Beautiful day for a terrific walk, which was more of a jog than a walk...lots up uphill to challenge me also...shed my coat before 15 mins. had passed...lol!
