Walking (Outside)

Wednesday, June 03, 2009

Walking .....such a simple everyday ordinary thing to do, until you turn it into an exercise! emoticon

Today I mapped out a route in my neighborhood, 1.07 miles. My best friend of 35 years came over and joined me for a walk.
Very first thing as we headed out the door, she started asking me questions. What was going on down the street?? I hadn't been down that way so we changed my walk plan to investigate. W hat was going on down the street?
Within one block west of me they are building two new houses. One where there wasn't house and one where they had torn down the old and are building new. This is pretty amazing since I live in older established neighborhood. Boy do I need to get out walking in my area more often.

Since we had altered the route in the beginning we had to make a few changes to the end. All and all not a bad walk, 1.07 miles in 35 minutes and it was hotter than we expected, so we were both drenched when we got back home!!

Next time going to drive to the trail down by the river and walk where it's cool!!
See what you learn when you take a walk outside!!

    I miss walking. We used to get up early every morning and walk down our dirt road before the heat and mosquitoes got bad. Sometimes we'd take a dog or two with us.

    I'm trying to get back into that, but we need to drive to the hard top before I can do so. The wheelchair wheels sink in the soft sand.

    Yesterday it was my first time walking around my neighborhood. I mostly workout at the gym, so it was definitely nice change in scenery. I live in Hawaii so I should take advantage of nature's beauty and its a shame that I don't.

    I'm right there with you..I need to get out more!!
