What a gorgeous day today was outside. Too bad I didn't see much of it. I mean I did my merchandising and then went to my full time job, so I was pretty much behind closed doors all day. I did hear opportunity knocking though and I answered her. I took two separate walks today. My first "outdoor" walks since the fall. I love it. Walking is great exercise and it can relieve stress. It gives you so much time to talk things over with yourself if you're walking alone. I am going to start my daily vigils of one hour walks back up again. I walked some on the indoors during the winter, but people have a tendency to look at you like you're nuts when you're walking in circles. Hey look at it like this: not only is walking good for you but it can be an adventure because you just never know what you're going to see or find. My feet do have blisters though because walking in doors is on carpet and all level. Today I walked outside on pavement and it was up then down and then up again. I could tell I was working a few different muscles. I do have a "manual" treadmill at home that a friend gave me. I use it sometimes, but I swear that thing will kill you. It's hard as hell to work since you are basically doing all the work of pushing the belt along. Ten to fifteen minutes on it and I feel like my legs are going to just fall off my body and my lungs are going to retreat to places unknown. Either way I am happy to see it's getting pretty walking weather. I've missed my communal experience with the great outdoors. I do have to get this class out of the way before I can commit too heavy, but it's great to see old man sunshine and his cousin warmth showing up. Lets just hope they stick around for an extra long summer. I challenge each and every one of you to get out and walk. It's good for you! Who knows maybe I'll pass you along the path. Sigh, oh what a beautiful day today was.
