Hello! I'm new here and I've been walking 1 to 2X/day up and around our canyon. The way up is a VERY steep hill, but on a paved road. The way down is on an unimproved road that is very bumpy and rocky. If you're not careful, you could easily twist an ankle. As I've progressed, I've been able to shave some time off this 1 and 1/4 mile walk. When I started, it took me 35 min; now I can do it in 24.
I've also just started jogging a teeny bit on the way down-- a big deal for this out-of-shape mother of four! Anyhow, I am new to fitness and I don't think my shoes are cutting it-- they're running shoes from the children's section of Target (I have small feet!) and I feel every stone as if I'm in flip-flops!
Can anyone recommend a good athletic shoe for the walk I am describing? I can't afford two pair, so it would be great if they'd also work well for my Leslie Sansone DVDs that I do inside on carpeting. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much. Keep on Sparking!
