Adding in a Long Walk Home

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

So today was my third day this week biking home. And I was so dreading it because, honestly, I don't want to bike every..single..day. I love biking home but I guess I didn't really think it through when I agreed to do it most days. Before I was only biking on Mondays and Wednesdays and it was fun. Probably because I did something different on Tuesdays. Well this week DD started another class at college so I no longer have access to the car on any weekday except Friday (thank goodness!). I figured I would bike all 4 days and drive the last day. But today I woke up thinking - yuck I have to bike again. Well that's not good because I've made a commitment to not driving. So tomorrow I will attempt walking home. Not all the way at first, since it is 8-1/2 miles and that would take me probably 2 to 2-1/2 hours and I just don't want to invest all that time right now (though my step count would be outstanding). But a former student who is now dual-enrolled at college in the afternoon leaves school just about the same time I do and he has agreed to drop me part-way tomorrow so I can walk home. Now I'm excited again, probably because it will be something different. I just need to change-up my routine every couple days so I don't get bored. Bike a few days, walk a few days. Tomorrow I will find out how that will work out.

    what a good way to challenge yourself to walk part way home! and its sounds like you are doing well with the biking too. if you can't add variety by changing the route, change the way you move!

    Changing up your routine is always good! I should do that myself more often.
