As I have a new family member, Salado (dog) I do my best to ensure he gets his exercise. At least twice if not three times Mon - Fri we walk in the AM and PM 30mins or 3 miles, depending on time. I also use my lunch hour to walk at work. On Saturday's Salado and I walk with some friends from San Antonio Sparkteam in the mornings.

My exercise partner is usually my little dog. He is game anytime and all the time. So we do at least 4 walks a day.

I prefer the morning, outside. Lately though, it has been so cold that I am taking advantage of our employee lunchtime wellness hour and walking on the indoor track.

Today was my first day walking in the morning before work. I think it gave me more energy for my day. I really enjoyed doing it in the morning and having it all done. I did strength training tonight when I got home from work. emoticon

I generally walk in the morning, before the baby wakes up if possible. Wearing a tracker has really helped me in this regard. I want to get a foundation of calories burned before the day is winding down.

I prefer early morning to beat the heat, the humidity and all the other folk.

The only timing that would beat that would be early am AND late pm or early evening.

When it is a late day outing, I want to go early enough to get back in before the voracous creepy, crawly, jumpy, flying critters start feeding on us!

Morning is a very good time to walk, while you are walking, it is also a good time to spend with God.

I walk first think in the morning, get up, get dressed and go. If I didn't I probably wouldn't go. As the day goes on I become more painful, that's why for me it has to be the first thing i do.

Very good time to go walking is in the morning. I watered the plants this morning & did some other things, that needed to be done. Will move some mulch, after I have my lunch.

I now walk about a mile & a half, to work if I miss the bus, then about 3/4 of a mile in the evening. This evening my boyfriend picked me up from work.
I am needing to move to the country, so I can walk without walking on cement & pavement, Plus my dog needs more room to run & play.

Too hot during the day for me here in Fl, so I normally walk after midnight, or on my sun porch on the treadmill. Favorite time is about 6am if I'm awake that early.

I Walk with my daughter, and the sun makes her ill, so we avoid it like the plague. Fair trade off, as she slows her pace to allow for my slower pace due to a walker and 02 tank.

We live in an adult park, so feel pretty safe, even in the middle of the night.

I will be thinner and healthier if it kills me. We don't say diet in our house-ever. Diets fail!

Usually I follow through with the activity when it is planned and initiated early in the day ... the earlier, the better for me.

If I plan for mid-day, it is always later yet that I start, if at all.

If I set myself for PM or nocs, I will get going better than with the mid-day plans.

I appreciate rolling along earliest best. When I complete the endeavor, most of my day is still in front of me ... and that is great!

If I am energetic, I have the option of topping the day off with a PM jaunt. That is a fine day indeed,

I love morning and evening. I think morning walks are invigorating and evening walks are relaxing. But if the weather is bad, I'll take any time of day I can.

When I have somewhere to go I walk Instead of riding the city bus, if it is not very far away. If it is anymore then a mile away I will take the bus. This morning I walked to & from the health food store. It is almost two miles going & coming.

It can vary from 4 a.m. to 6:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and sometimes evenings.

Emotion may help us get started in the right direction, but it is rarely there at the finish line. Sooner or later we must press forward without the support of emotion and employ discipline.

When I am on break I walk early morning but when I am working it is after supper. I tried after work but it really wasn't something I looked forward to like I do going out after supper.

I usually walk early evening - right after I get home from work I grab the kids and the dog and we head to the beach for a relaxing time.

Weekdays, I'm on the treadmill before the market opens (9:30am EDT). Weekends, I get 1.5 miles in during FoxNewSunday plus another leisurely 2-3 miles during Inside Washington and McLaughlin Group.
For sheer pleasure, I like a 2.8-mile stroll around the neighborhood, but I do it only once a week.
Little by little, it adds up. The treadmill helps me add intensity because I crank up the speed and sometimes the incline during the commercials (which I mute).

Muscle is life. (Fat is death.)

I like to walk at 9pm, cause it is nice and cool then. It is also peaceful, quiet and not much traffic. It is nice, and helps me sleep well. But morning walks are a nice change so I can watch all the wild life during my walks. I live in a new area, so there is so much to look at
