Keep Walking

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

I went out today for a nice walk. I am amazed just how much I have improved in my walking. I walked for 90 min. and walking 6 miles. A year ago when I started to walk I could not make it half a mile. I had such a problem just getting my feet right. I had to find the sneakers that would not give me blisters. Plus even the right socks that would not fall or give me blisters or roll small things make a great difference in the success of your walk. I had no idea it would be so hard to just get it all right. I had to stop and heal many times along the way. The blisters were so bad. It feels good to be able to walk and feel strong and energetic and enjoy the time out. My speed has improved and I learn this by how I have to add more distance when walking to still walk the same amount of time.

Who knew learning to walk would be such an experience. But it has made the walk I do now so appreciated and enjoyable.

    emoticon I am a walker also and get such great pleasure from it. I was told many years ago that I would never walk again. Now I try to walk for at least 90-120 minutes every day and since the weather is nice also do some water jogging.
    Keep up the great work.
    emoticon YOU ARE DOING IT!!!

    I look to you for encouragement. I hope some day when I walk 90 minutes I will get that far.

    I find walking to be better at triming my thighs and helping ot burn belly fat more then working out at a gym on a treadmill or ellipticle. Keep up the good work. Feels great when you realize the progress you'ved made.
