Shopping isn't constant moving...it's stopping and standing which interferes with your circulation--the more you circulate, the better you feel!

I find that I don't enjoy shopping walking as well as outdoor or treadmill walking. I think it has something to do with all the obstacals, people, booths and such, so maybe the pain is your bodys way of saying it doesnt like the enviroment?

Moving, moving, moving! Don't stop moving because every step you take is a step in the right direction!

I think it is also the added people to dodge, the noise and the stopping and starting of it all. I have always said that walking around London takes more energy than walking anywhere else.
Very well done with the loss so far though. emoticon

Around the neighborhood it's a cement sidewalk. Around the mall - I'm not sure, probably some sort of tile.

Hi all,
I have a general question about walking fitness. I've been walking 22 min / .84 miles every evening for the past month. I rarely miss except on a few of those very hot days.
I'm feeling much better physically (also lost 11 pounds) and walking is getting easier - so I've added a morning walk to my routine.
Now for the question :)
Yesterday my daughter and I went shopping at a local mall and I was hoping that my stronger legs would make it more fun. It's such a PAIN (no pun) when I go shopping because my legs just start to ache after about 30 minutes shopping. But there it was again - just barely there 30 minutes and my legs are killing me.
Why do I feel so great when walking the dog around the neighborhood but give out when I am shopping??
