You're doing great! I'll bet you feel great, knowing your health is helped by these walks. And then you'll feel so much better, in time. I sure do.
About 5 years ago I bought myself a pedometer at Walmart and started walking, shooting for 5,000 steps per day (about 1.5 mi). It is great motivation, trying to beat the latest number of steps, to get to a new level. I have done 10,000 a few times but mostly, with my other responsibilities, 5,000 to 7,000 is my general best to beat.
Keep up the good work! It's not really work when you consider the benefits, though -- right?
I'm so grateful for God's grace in giving me the desire for my walk in spite of the heat/humidity--wrapped a wet towel around my neck to help counter the heat! I was even able to cut 1 minute off my mile so I did 3 miles in 48 minutes. Only 1 more minute to cut off my mile before I go to a 4 mile walk.
Praising God for His grace!
