Do you or don't you?

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

I love to walk. Last summer my best friend and I walked nearly every day, when the weather permitted. It was so great to get out in the sunshine, get in some great exercise, and enjoy her company. This week the weather man said spring will be arriving, and I can't wait! I am so anxious to hit our walking route, and to find new ones. I love walking, but I do NOT care for it by myself. I can do many exercises alone, and prefer to do them alone, but walking I have tried and it just is not the same for me. So for the walkers, do you prefer to walk alone, or with someone?
If you prefer to be alone, did you have to get to the point of liking it? Thanks!

    I can walk by myself (ooh doesn't that sound grownup LOL), but I much prefer walking with someone. Just as I'd prefer playing badminton with someone or riding bicycle alone, as to doing all these stupid infernal exercises :) . I used to love to go 'park hopping' with my kids and hitting the trails and then playing on the playground equipment....Now I need to make sure I'm in shape enough to do that with the grandkids.

    I normally walk on my treadmill . My DH sometime walk with me to the park near me which has a walking/jog trail. One round is 1 mile. He is so out of shape and so far he can only walk 1 mile. (*^^*)

    I enjoy walking alone, with my dog, or with other people. If alone, I like to have headphones to listen to music, which helps to keep my pace up. However, if walking in nature rather than around the neighborhood, I skip music so I can hear birds, leaves rustling, etc. Don't mind going alone because my work and home life are busy. Sometimes quiet solitude feels good.

    I love walking with my husband, but if necessary, I can do it alone or with the dog. :)

    I prefer walking alone because I like to clear my head or listen to headphones. But I do like walking with someone too, to talk with someone and have a good conversation. So happy spring is finally here! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I enjoy all exercise outside and 9 times out of 10 I do it alone. If it is gardening I just enjoy being outside if it is walking I like to listen to music while walking and tune out the whole list of things I need to be doing. It is my me time to enjoy some great music and get some fresh air. I started walking on my lunch again just for fun. I love looking at everyones yards to see what I can do to mine. Great way to get new ideas!

    As I have no one near me to walk with, I have grown to like walking by myself as long as I have my MP3 player! Lately though I have been taking my walks outside with the dogs & I talk to them-lol!

    I like to walk with someone but can walk by myself if needed. If walking by myself it does get boring. Either way it is good exercise. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I like walking by myself it gives me time to think. I also enjoy listening to music while I walk. I downloaded some of my favorite music that makes me wanna move, I even sing along, lol. I have tried walking with a friend, but we don't always walk at the same pace, and sometimes we do more talking than really getting in a good walk. Either way its great exercise!
