Good walk today!

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

Well, I did not make it to take my walking shoes to work today as planned. I got up late, and was running late, and didn't have time to think about it. I didn't get to take a lunch break anyway, and worked late too. Even so, when I got home, I just really wanted to go out and walk, so I threw all my stuff on the bed, put on my walking shoes and ipod, and went out for my two mile walk, racing the sunset. I completed the route I was doing last Spring and Summer while unemployed. It felt really good. I've been having a difficult time getting back to the exercise while working at my new job, so this was a great opportunity to show myself I can do it. I may not do it everyday, but will keep the momentum going with the challenges and Starfish team goals in mind. Before the winter weather set in, I had a 1 mile route around my workplace neighborhood that I can do on 30 minute lunch breaks, so I'll try to fit that in sometimes too.

    Great job getting your walk in! I know that sometimes when things don't go according to plan, we can give up and get frustrated. Kudos to you for going the other way!

    That is so cool that you have the opportunity to get out and walk during your lunch breaks. Good for you for getting out and walking last night! Walking and listening to music can actually be relaxing...what do you listen to? Keep up the great work!
