For the past year or so, I've been looking at walking poles online and pricing them. Last year on SP, I posted a blog asking if anyone uses them when they walk and only a couple responded yes.
In my own neighborhood, I've only seen one person use one pole while walking on the nearby sidewalks. What these do is add challenge to the aerobic aspect and I've always been intrigued but decided I didn't need to spend the money on something I don't know if I'll use.
A couple of weeks ago, I was meandering around Marshalls and lo-and-behold in front of me-walking poles! And in pink psychedelic designs. And at a price that was very reasonable to try them out.
Of course, they now have a home and the next step is to use them. I'll look totally ridiculous, but that never stopped me before. (smiling) If nothing else, they are pretty. If they work me harder while walking, that'll be even better. We'll see what the future holds.
Wishing all a happy day.
