Walking to steppin' music...felt good

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

As I prepare for surgery on Friday, I had to have a prescription filled for Percocet. I certainly don't want to wait until the last minute. I decided to walk to the pharmacy. It's only 1.21 miles there, but I've always driven there. I'd never walked it.

I own a cd called Fusion Step '09. I think I purchased it from YES FITNESS. It's a good, steady pace by which to walk. When I got to the pharmacy, I kept moving to the music while I waited for the pharmacist to finish with my order. I kept it movin' and it felt good to work up - what I call, a simple sweat.

I figure I'd better get all the working out in I can now because for at least the next couple weeks, I'm not gonna be able to do any. (Should I stop eating???) LOL

    I respond to music when I am walking too! Music helps me so much to keep going and enjoy the experience especially when I am walking hills an valleys! emoticon

    Good for you. 1.2 mile is so close I almost never drive that close.
