When I worked in the mall I was always cheering for the early morning mall walkers.
I have recently discover that joy myself. Biggest advantage is that it's indoors and temperature controlled. I hate winter.
The one disadvantage is the food court.

Hey gang - many malls have "walker's hours," where they open for walkers before the stores open. This is a GREAT way to get your cardio in when it's nasty outside.

Check with your local mall!

Sounds wonderful, right now If I walk its indoors at the mall, its just to cold to enjoy it outside these days. Hopefully soon I'll be able to take it outdoors.

I love to walk in a wonderful park that is paved and has markers telling how far you walk. In our area, they have just completed a paved trail that used to be a railroad track that stretches about 20 miles. It can be used for walking, biking and on the grassy area horses. I have only been part way on it. But it's so nice not to have to worry about traffic in both places. It is way too cold and snowy for me to go now, but I'm looking forward to it in the spring!
Keep up the walking, it gets easier every time. emoticon

Our city has a greenway system. Fortunate for us, we live close enough to walk it to a small lake. I love to walk my dog around the lake. It has asphalt trails 3/4 of the way around and a more wooded terrain the final 1/4, which helps burn a few extra calories.

I wear a pedometer daily to make sure I walk a total of 10,000 steps a day. If I am short, I have the treadmill. However, that is the last place I like to walk and it motivates me to get up and get walking anywhere but there!


If its to be, it is up to ME!

We have a fantastic park in our area. They have a oval walking track for the adults. The playground is in the middle of the track, so you can watch the children as you walk. There's also a sand volleyball court, and baseball diamond. I can't wait until spring when we can get go again.

My favorite place to walk is our local park. We can turn it into a family thing. My kids have the option of walking with us or playing. Even then, they are within sight, so I am still free to walk. Looking forward to spring when we can start doing that again. Maybe pack a picnic to take with us.

Tonight My niece and I walked the mall! Yeah for us! It has been awhile. At Customer Service they have a map that shows the route to take and it comes to 1/2 mile. We did it! She is younger than I, but we did it! Took about 25 minutes, with a potty break before hand.

What's your favorite place to walk? I always liked the mall as the temperature is controlled and I don't have to worry about holes. Only bad part was a STRONG scent coming from Bath and Bodyworks that overpowered me! And then we drooled while breezing through Food Court ;)

Keep on Keepin' on! emoticon
