I walk around my neighborhood.

I live close to the river and trails there. I would like to start walking there on the weekends.

I've been walking up the road from my house. When my friend moves to town, we will walk in her neighborhood or at the cemetery.

I enjoy walking around my neighborhood and there is also a track nearby I really enjoy walking that as well. I like the track because I know that if I make it at least 4 times around, that is a mile.

I walk around my neighbourhood. I live in town, so my local streets are a nice grid pattern. I close up a large rectangle from my front door, that way I can walk all 4 directions. I can just enlarge the rectangle when I'm ready to add mileage.

I do love my elliptical for those times. I love doing the tabata protocol on it too.

I don't really care to walk by myself, but I have enjoyed walking around my pond. It is just right behind my house. emoticon

I love walking outdoors. Hubby and I usually walk 4-5 miles in the evenings. Lately, I added a morning walk/jog. I prefer to walk, but it's a little intimidating to be outside, in the dark and the cold, by myself so I have lots of motivation to pick up the pace. =)

I'm considering a treadmill for those times when I can't get outside (or just don't want to).

I like to walk the Thompson Trail in a city close to my home in SoCal. It is quiet w/ plenty of trees, a park and mountains to the north. It's a 2-mile trail where many go to walk their dogs, jog or just spend a morning as I like to do. Takes a little over an hour to starting and back. Can't wait to do it again now that the cooler weather is upon us.

Anything worthwhile takes effort..never give up.

Now they are in the Sweet Sixteen NCAA tournament round. Spartan's take care of business, as in also winning the 2014 Rose bowl game.

There are bike paths all over this city, (East Grand Forks, MN) which is just across the river from Grand Forks, ND. Because of a bad flood in 97 they had to get rid of so many homes by the river, so they built all these marvelous bike paths, many miles and miles of them. It would take all summer to take the same path or walk the same place each time. So I feel pretty fortunate. emoticon

I like to walk on bike walks, as we have alot of them in my area. I like to go on different ones, because they all have beautiful scenery especially now when all the trees are budding out. I am also just starting to bike some, too.

If I am walking at home, I have a couple of favorites.

I pushmow a trail, takes me about 15 minutes to walk it once. Takes me longer to mow it, cuz I make a couple of passes. So that is a two for one :) (I asked for a pushmower last year for my b-day for exercise) emoticon But I like this trail because it is mostly hidden, and I can also work in some short sprints w/o my neighbors wondering what in the world is wrong with me, am I being chased by a bear or something?

I also have a 5K walked out on my road. I like to do that sometimes.

If I want to see different scenery or walk longer than my little trail, but off the gravel road, I take off to the back pasture.

If I meet others to walk, we have a very nice pretty little park in town, about 2 miles away. emoticon
