Walking Blog

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

Okay, for a team I'm on we are to do a blog about our walk for the day. I don't walk outside so my blog will be about my walk on the treadmill. ..... not that interesting, I'm afraid.

I set my timer for a 5 min warm up, then after that went off I set it for a 10 min walk, the a 5 min cool down. Lately my foot has been hurting after about that much time...actually it is where the big toe connects to the foot, by the bone. I'm going to see the doctor when my DH goes for his appt.

So, this is about all I see when I walk

This was the commercial with Flo for I believe Progressive Ins.

and looking straight ahead is the door

That strip of white on the door says 'The Door - Das Büro' I used to study German and still have a bunch of tags around the house. Next to the door is DH closet....or one of them, we each have two closets with parapanelia (I'm sure that isn't spelled right, but it didn't come up on spell check) as well as clothes. We have some left over clothes here in the den and in or bedroom. After all I do have to keep my fat clothes and skinny clothes.

Well, that's it. Sorry it wasn't very interesting.

Now if i could create my dream walk it would be to hike in Ireland. It's a pretty country plus, I like the accent.

The Kerry Way is a long-distance trail in County Kerry, Ireland. It is a 214-kilometre (133-mile) long circular trail that begins and ends in Killarney.


One problem....my treadmill doesn't face the computer so I can't do any youtubes. The door is straight ahead and the computer is on the desk at the back of the treadmill. Hump!!! Need to redesign the room.

    I think you are awesome!! emoticon emoticon emoticon When I have to walk inside, I jam out oldies music and I also go to youtube. They have some great Leslie Sansone walking videos downloaded on there. They also have walking videos with really cool backgrounds of different places. Just google "virtual walks on youtube", and something should come up. I really wanted to go to the beach the other night, hee hee (with my husband being ill), and I found this great walk along the beach. It really lifted my spirits. I hope this link comes through. I can sparkmail it to you if it doesn't. But check around youtube. Lots of scenery and walking videos that are longer too. We can do it! emoticon emoticon

    The Kerry Way sounds fabulous. I'm off to google about it. Maybe there are pictures. Congrats on your walking. I know sometimes walking on the treadmil is boring, that's why so many people watch TV or read while doing it. But the point is....you're doing it. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    A poster of Ireland scenery would be great. A suggestion I would have for you for variety is to get some of Leslie Sansone's walking DVDs. They are great and I don't get bored.

    There are videos of walks that you could rent or borrow from the library. I walk on a treadmill when the weather doesn't allow walking outdoors and I read while I walk.

    hi Courti! you made indoor walking so much fun. Maybe you could pin up a picture of the Kerry Trail to have a little scenery!

    I really like it a lot and it would be great to have a treadmill at home. Plus you have inspired me to blog. Thanks

    Actually, it is not bad. For instance, I didn't know you wanted to learn German and have labels throughout your home. Not everybody does that! emoticon AND it takes creativity to talk about your walks indoors and taking photos of your TV show AND you completed your assignment too. How great is that!! emoticon emoticon

    Love, Chelsea

    Court, you are too funny! emoticon

    Now I feel that I need to make a blog about my morning workout - in which the television is also a major feature! LOL - I love that idea, I just might have to do it.

    Oh, Courti. I love the Scotland countryside you shared with us a while back, but... I take a look...
