Walking in the rain

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

I totally didn't want to go for my walk tonight, it was cold and rainy. But I promised myself I'd do 10 minutes of exercise a day, so I grumbled and put on my raincoat and set out to go around the block.

Once I was outside, I decided to just embrace the weather and do a meditative walk, and it was actually awesome in the rain. I simply listened to the rain and watched the drops hitting the sidewalk and I listened to the storm drains gurgle. I was really enjoying it!

So I ended up walking for 30 minutes. Yey me!

    Yay you is right! I bought a good umbrella this week for rainy walks . . . only to be used for walking so I can't leave it behind somewhere.

    I like to walk in the rain and even like to walk in the snow if it isn't too deep.

    Good for you! I have such a hard time taking that first step that I often don't make it out the door. Thanks for the inspiration to try harder to walk out the door.
